Ubuntu :: Unable To Launch A .sh From An Application Shortcut

Sep 1, 2010

I'm new here, but certainly not new to Linux. Some of you may recognise my screen handle from other forum groups. Sadly my other communities seem to be dying and this one is going strong so here I am! I'm sure there's something I'm doing incorrectly, but here's my scenario:

I have a pair of shell scripts that launch SSH sessions with different forwarded ports, and use them multiple times each day. I'd like to drag the shell script directly onto the top Ubuntu Bar where shortcuts go and be able to use it. Or, even better, put all of my frequently used shell scripts in a "drawer". I know that I used to be able to make a shortcut, and set its path to "gnome-terminal -e file://xx.sh" and the script would run in a new terminal window. When I try to do this, a terminal opens with an error dialog that reads "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal". Permissions?

Fedora :: Set A Shortcut To An Application On KDE Desktop?

Jan 3, 2010

This should be simple, but I just don't see it. KDE 4 desktopI have an application located in /usr/Kompozer that I'd like to add a shortcut to on my desktop. It's not on the menu. Runs fine from the command line. Right clicking on desktop doesn't seem to have what I need. I tried using Dolphin file manager, but still no joy. Can copy, but again can't paste a shortcut on the desktop... or so it seems.

OpenSUSE :: Application Shortcut Owned By Root?

Jun 27, 2010

I tried to create a shortcut to an app I wanted in the plasma dashboard. When I did so, I found that it was owned by root! When I looked at the permissions of the other app icons, they were owned by me, the user.Why did plasma make my newly created app launcher owned by root?I'm so used to the way KDE 3 worked. It was so much simpler. I could click anywhere on that desktop to add shortcuts and they were owned by me, not root. I don't understand why they changed this.

Ubuntu :: Application Launcher Shortcut To Open Terminal And Execute A Command

Jan 15, 2010

I'm having Ubuntu Kramic Koala and i want to create a custom application launcher on the panel so when it is clicked it should open a terminal window and run the following command and then show the output for 5 secs and then closes the terminal... how can i do this?

cat /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode && sleep 5

the above command is what i want to be executed at time of running the custom application launcher. if i paste the command in a terminal, it will show the output for 5 secs and then terminates... that's almost what i want. what i exactly want is that, i want it to work like when i click on the shortcut launcher, it should open a terminal and then exectues that command, show the output for 5 sec, pause, and then exits the teriminal.

General :: Launch Application With Keyboard Shortcut In Gnome

Dec 13, 2010

I use ctrl + shift + s to launch synaptic in KDE. That works wonderful and it is standardized on all my systems. I want to define the same in gnome, so that it does not matter if I'm in gnome or KDE.Where can I do this?Now before you start mentioning, I am familiar with keyboard launchers like launchy or gnome do (but have to admit that I don't know that much what gnome do does in all extents), so I am not looking for a program that launches an app after typing a few letters. I want exactly that keyboard combination, everything else will not do it.

I just mention that, because it happens all the time that I see in my posts that I ask:
How can I do B with Y? I don't want to use Z. (specifically asking the question) and then hear as an answer: you can do B with Z!And I am always tempted to answer: That is not what I asked, I asked something specific and got an answer that does not concern it.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Start Terminal From Keyboard Shortcut (11.01 Unity)

May 22, 2011

I've recently upgraded a laptop of mine from 10.10 to 11.04 (Natty), and am having a few issues with it. I don't know how many of these are related to using Unity and how many are just due to the upgrade, but one of the main bugbears is keyboard shortcuts. I have always set the F12 key so that it opens a terminal window. I did this through the settings > Keyboard Shortcuts interface, but although I can (apparently) set this in Unity, it doesn't work. The setting is there, listed, but pressing F12 doesn't open a terminal. Neither does it if I set it to any other key.

I can create a new entry, to start xterm with F12, which works fine but this isn't quite the same as a terminal (it appears different on screen.) I also discover that CTRL+ALT+T doesn't open a terminal window either (as is suggested in a very useful list here: [URL] Have I missed something? Or am I being thick? (Quite possible ... )

OpenSUSE :: Desktop Shortcut Won't Start App

Sep 13, 2010

I installed matlab for linux via the installer. When I type into the terminal as normal user:



the program starts perfectly fine. I want now a click-able icon on the desktop (KDE3.5). So when I produce the application shortcut, no matter how I do define the command, it will not start. I did put Command: matlab (tried also matlab glnx86) I joined in advanced: start in terminal (but it does not work either) I did join the complete and correct path...... Somehow....I do not understand why it starts from the console in user-mode without problems with the command but not while using a shortcut.

Ubuntu :: Start An Application In Terminal?

Apr 29, 2010

I have a binary application that runs only in shell, now I want to open it from another application(Mathematica program) but simply invoking it will start it in memory but not in a shell.

I tryed "bash app" which does not work and "gnome-terminal app" just opens the terminal without launching that application.

Ps: Its the same thing as in Java when you want to invoke a system command like
ping but you need to do it like this .exec("cmd ping") instead of just ping.

Ubuntu :: Put In Synaptic The Cli Command To Start An Application

Jan 7, 2010

After having installed a certain programme, in my experience it can sometimes be slightly boring if you want to start the application from the terminal, but you can't figure out the right command, which to my knowledge is not always the same as the exact name of the application.

- Is there a way that I do not know to find this "start-up" command ? - Would it be convenient to include this command with the short description of the application as given in Synaptic (shown when selecting a programme in synaptic before marking it for installation etc.)

Ubuntu :: Bin Application Failed To Start Properly

Nov 27, 2010

I accidentally deleted my bin just after booting up when the bin application failed to start properly. I can still send items to trash (right clicking and select from drop down menu) but I cannot restore them, see the bin icon or drag items to the bin area. It is quite annoying and I would be very grateful for comprehensive instructions on how to restore the bin to full operational functionality.

Ubuntu :: Start A GUI Application On Remote Computer Using Ssh?

Aug 18, 2011

I forgot to run a GUI process on a remote computer. I need to run the application as if I was at the computer i.e the application needs to open on the desktop on the remote computer.

I can connect to the computer through an ssh tunnel via another computer at the remote site and run non GUI based processes using Screen or bring some GUI programs to the computer I'm working from using the ssh -X option, however, this is not what I'm looking to do.

On Windows I used to use a program from sysinterns called PsExec which would let me start applications such as Word on the remote computer and I'm hoping that there is something similar on Linux.

Ubuntu :: Start A Wine Application In 64bit-mode?

Apr 26, 2011

I want to install a 64bit-only application in my wine.But every time i try to load the installer it says that it only works on a 64bit-system.Iv'e tried the 32-version of the app and it works fine.I heard that since version 1.2 wine is able to support 64bits.But how do I force wine to load an app in 64bit-mode? I'm guessing there is an option to the wine command or something. But what is it? can't find anything in the man-page. And a google on the subject only brings up old posts from people who are trying to install wine in 64bit-ubuntu...
