Start xpdf or gv. Click an xterm to be active and slide it over xpdf/gv. Vertical lines from xpdf/gv under the xterm stick to the xterm window above and make it unreadable.
The problem does NOT show with KDE default settings with display effects on but does show in fvwm, xfce etc, and in KDE without effects.
On a system with a Sandy Bridge integrated graphics (i5-2400) the problem went away by downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.13.0. But it was not enough for another system with 945G which needed downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.12.0.
I cannot middle click paste from Aterm to Opera. I can however middle click paste from Aterm to Firefox, and paste from a different terminal (not Aterm) into Opera. (Distro is Slackware 13.1, Dell laptop).
From time to time, I check out the latest compiz-fusion just to play around with it. Everything compiles and installs just fine under my Slackware64 13.1 install, and I follow the build order that's been posted here and on SlackBuilds.org. When I switch over to compiz and emerald from Xfwm4 using fusion-icon, everything looks just fine. However, all of the text that *I* input into aterm is corrupted. Using the xfce terminal doesn't seem to be a problem. When I move the cursor using the arrow keys, a similar type of display corruption occurs. When I close aterm, an outline of the window remains until I tell fusion-icon to reload the window manager.
We are having a cluster with couple of disk servers, compute nodes and a head node. Disk server is nfs mounted on all the compute and head nodes. The problem is that if any of the disk servers hangs, it freezes rest of the cluster too which is dangerous. Ideally, cluster should not care about the hanged server and run without any problem except files from that server is not visible. Is there any way I could avoid the problem of freezing cluster because of one hanged server?
I recently upgraded from xubuntu 9.04 to 11.04, and it seems xterm is either incorrectly configured for the new desktop or not working right. After a bit of typing, xterm stops refreshing, and only the first few chars or words are shown until I manually refresh xterm (then, whatever I'd written shows up correctly).
Steps to reproduce 1. Open xterm, basic command prompt shows up 2. Type "hello, this is a test", xterm only shows "hello, th" 3. Press 'ctrl-l' or click outside the xterm window, xterm updates with full "hello, this is a test"
Already tried dpkg-reconfigure with no success.
Attached is the output from "appres XTerm" and "infocmp"
running Xubuntu 10.04 here. After installing and removing some packages in package manager I'm finding after reboot I cannot logon to the computer. When the correct password is entered the screen goes to black briefly then returns to the logon screen. It appears I can only logon to an xterm session. how to proceed next?
In an effort to learn more about Linux and especially Ubuntu, I chose Xterm as the default login screen. Would someone be kind enough to point me to the appropriate docs or give me a leg up with restoring GNOME? I am using 10.04.
so I recently got Vegastrike working after some toils with XTERM not loading. Now I purposefully changed the resolution too high so that the game would error out so that I could show you the sound bug. I do know that if I lower my resolution it will function, but I get no sound, no music, not even system beeps. I believe it's tied to one line of code, but being a total newb in linux I haven't figured out what I need to do to fix it.
I found somewhere that it was saying I had the wrong sound card when I have a realtek on my motherboard and it asked me to edit a file in the root directory, which I did, however it doesn't seem to help the issue. I'm totally stumped as to what the hell I need to do to get sound. Game looks amazing, but with no sound it's sorta worthless right at the moment.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 on a home network (without internet access)Occasionally I need to restart the print server. Code: xterm -e 'sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart' each time it asks for the password but because this is a closed network, I'd like to dispense with it asking for the user password each time
I have a normal computer installed (F14, 32 bits) with a sound card correctly installed. In a normal configuration into runlevel 5, I can play sound and the sound card is visible from the gnome-volume-control window. I should modify the computer running a naked X server (without window manager and other stuff) and two applications (an xterm and a special application managing sounds). The last application is a text based application and could run on a text console. I have the X server running because I display picture sent from another computer. Currently the computer boots on runlevel 3 and logs in automatically. If I start manually my special application, it runs fine. I create a .xinitrc script with the xterm command and I change the .bashrc calling xinit. Each application runs well independently. My problem is when I try running my special sound application from the xterm window. I have no sound. If a run the gnome-volume-control command, the program shows that no sound card is available.
I suppose the X server removes the original sound configuration of the text mode during its initialization and could not initialize correctly after that the sound card.
how it is possible to initialize the sound card manually into the X server? Do I need running some gnome command before I can call my application?
I am running Fedora 14 and have run into a new problem. If I do either "su -" and enter password, or, "sudo su -" the terminal stops. I put a set -x in roots .bashrc and nothing. Login from a vt works and loging in as root from gdm produces nothing.
I had this error when installing and running a vncserver before, which I have now removed. However, the xterm's seem to remain in the system and are regenerating themselves. Should the pid IDs stay the same each time I run this?
I want to run some parts of a script in different terminals. I already found about subshell, () using parenthesis to group commands and using xterm -e (function), problem is I cannot get pid for the function running in the other terminal. And if I use & to set the job in background the terminal goes away as soon as it ends the job. I am using log files, and then send it them using built in mail. After all the parts finish I have to run the "main" script which needs the data from all the pieces. Also other question, i usually use bash, but to load a tool i need csh, the tool is not mine so i can not change the csh usage. There is anyway of passing bash scripts/commands at the moment of changing/invoking to csh shell in the same console?
Anyone knows how to save the currently workspace settings on my desktop when logout/reboot/shutdown the old setting will resume? Currently, i have configured the multiple xterm sessions and placed them in each corner of workspace on dual monitors, but after the system rebooted the xterm sessions are resumed, but they display on one monitor instead of two monitor and overlapped each other. I followed to save the desktop setting at in the "startup Applications preferencesemember currently runnign application". This would not work as i wish. Littlery, i want each xterm session reopen and place in each corner of workspace
I am running hummingbird exceed on Workstation with an ip address of a.b.c.d, and connecting to a sun machine with IP address x.y.z.w running Solaris with XDMCP. From the sun machine, we commonly telnet to other sun and linux machines and run X applications.
We have just installed ubuntu 10.04, and I can telnet into that machine no problem.
However, running xterm on the ubuntu machine fails:
i booted up my Ubuntu 10.04 and at the login promt I changed from GNOME to xterm session. Then i logged in and opened my programs and it didn't have the gtk theme enabled that i have when I start my ubuntu in GNOME session mode. How do i enable gtk themes there so everything looks pretty again? I like starting from xterm because it's very fast..
This is how it looks, notice the ugly buttons and everything... the gtk theme is not loaded and i don't know how to enable it..
And here i will show you how it should look and how it normally looks with the gtk theme loaded up... basically i would like it to look like this even when i start it from xterm..
Really, I would like to know how i can enable gtk themes when I run my computer in xterm session mode. Is there another application that i have to run? I don't want to run the full GNOME environment, i really don't.
The usual operations in starting the xterm app don't seem to apply in Fedora 12. I usually prefer to put my own title and other attributes when starting an xterm. But the operation: xterm -T 'Some Title' does not do anything. Instead, the current directory is always displayed in the title bar of the window (on kde). Where is the resource file to disable this default behavior?
On FC14, launching xterm gives log:[b16394@udp158975uds ~]$ xterm Warning: Cannot convert string "nil2" to type FontStructxterm: cannot load font -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso10646-1
on OpenSuse 11.3 installed first KDE Desktop but my desktop Pentium 4 2.2Ghz is really slow... with XFCE work perfectly but XTerm is very poor. Cut and Paste text selection don't wok, like Mouse selection and font.
