Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

Ubuntu :: Close Terminal, Kill The App That's Running?

May 15, 2010

So, this may have something to do specifically with conky, but I don't understand how sometimes when I run 'conky' from the terminal and then once it loads I close the terminal, it kills conky. But other times, I do the same thing, wait for it to load, and it just keeps running! In both cases, I don't get a "user@computer~:$" prompt back after running 'conky' either. That happens sometimes with other things like gedit too..

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Disconnection When Close The Terminal?

Mar 25, 2010

First, the network manager would show up on my girlfriend's profile (hers was the first one we created) but it won't show up on mine and it would not detect any internet connections. I found another thread that told me to type "nm-applet &" into the terminal, which works great. It shows the network manager and auto connects. But as soon as I close the terminal, it auto disconnects. Anyone know why and what I can do to make the network manager icon stay besides keeping the terminal open?

General :: Close "screen" Session From A Script?

Jun 26, 2011

I am using screen to start a LONG running script on my server over an ssh connection. This works fine. I can see that the script is continuing to run after I disconnect from the screen session using Ctrl-A d. When the script is complete I can reconnect to the screen session and manually terminate it.

I would like to be able to terminate the screen session at the end of the script. I tried issuing an exit command at the end of the script. That did NOT work. Any ideas?

Ubuntu :: Failsafe Terminal - Session Only Lasted Less Than 10 Seconds

Aug 8, 2010

when i did that, I turned it back on, and well I had this huge huge problem, i've made a few threads about it. So I had to go through a manual FSCK. I did all that and I do have the cd, although when I try to boot off of the live cd, it gives me a bunch of buffer errors, I have a thread or two about that problem too. So i can't boot off a live cd and fix it through that.

Now i've gotton to the point where I can get to the login screen, it looks normal and everything but when I log into a normal session it greets me with this Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problem or that you may be out of diskspace. Try logging in with one of the failsafe sessions to see if you can fix this problem. View details (~/.xsession-errors file)

Code: /etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup... Setting IM through im-switch for locale=en_US. Start IM through /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/all_ALL linked to /etc/X11/xinit/xinput.d/default. mkdtemp: private socket dir: Permission denied

So i have no idea what that all means but i did understand failsafe terminal. So when I go to the failsafe terminal to try and fix things, I'm completely lost. I don't know what to type at all. I'm a windows user most of the time.

Debian :: How To Start X Session In New Terminal

Apr 20, 2015

System: Debian 7 Wheezy amd64 - Gnome classic - gdm3

I'm trying to create a new gdm session in tty8, so I can switch between tty7 and tty8 running simultaneously.

How can I accomplish this? I found some website suggesting to run startx and also startx gnome-session -- :1 vt8 Both result in a black screen, blocking the overall system, not allowing me to go to tty1 nor any tty. I have to run REINSUB to restart the system.

# I don't know if tty is the exact term to refer to the CTRL+ALT+Fx virtual terminals.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Run A Process In A Screen Session And Then Detach And Quit Terminal

Jul 24, 2010

There are often times when the best way to launch an application is from the terminal, but it is a graphical application and after it is launched the terminal is useless.

Examples of places where a terminal is convenient are when a process starts lots of child processes and is also unstable; you can be sure to kill all of its children simply by using Ctrl-C at the terminal. Also it allows me to read program output and to set up the terminal environment to be optimal for the application (for example "unset LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT")

With GNU screen, I can get around the hassle of having a terminal window open by using something like the following in a terminal window:

Ctrl-A d

and then I can close the terminal and the program will keep running. Then I just type "screen -r <Tab>" (the tab will get me my screen session if there is only one such session) in any terminal window, even a tty, and I can get the screen session back and use Ctrl-c or something.

So my question is, is there a way to do this automatically so that a launcher or script will start a screen session, inside that screen session start a process, and then detach from that screen session without me having to manually open and close a terminal and type the commands?

Software :: Su - From VNC Session Doesn't Work But Works Ok When At The Terminal

Nov 18, 2009

When I connect to my workstation via Real VNC Viewer 4 to Xvnc running on the workstation, and running "su -" I get authentication failure as follows:

So, effectively I cannot su when connected via VNC.

But if I'm at my workstation, I can su just fine:

Nov 18 16:24:30 localhost su: pam_unix(su-l:session): session opened for user root by xyz(uid=500)

Interestingly enough, I cannot su to my own userid over vnc, i.e. su xyz

In /var/log/secure I get:

I suspect it has something to do with PAM, but cannot figure it out.

Software :: Redirect ALL Terminal Output To File And Screen (for Entire Session)?

Jul 6, 2010

Is there one command that will let me record an entire terminal session (with any possible errors) to a text file while also seeing all output on screen too? I know it can be done for individual commands, but I'm looking to do this for an entire session where the individual commands will be normal (i.e., not piped into tee, etc.). It would be even better if the command prompt is captured too. The obvious utility of this makes me think someone surely has come up with a solution long ago (probably in the 60's).(I'm sure it goes without saying, but subsequent output in that session should be appended to the file. The file should contain the full history, with all output and errors, of the session.)

Programming :: Hashing The Components Of An Tcp Session To Assign/locate The Session In A Hash Table Bucket?

Nov 10, 2010

I have a very bad attempt at hashing the components of an tcp session to assign/locate the session in a hash table bucket. I am pretty sure that it has a very high collision rate and when there are a very large number of tcp sessions my application is having to search a long linked list to find the session within the bucket.

All the hashing functions I have found take a single string input where I need to input several integers and hash them into a single result. My guess is that any real hashing function is going to produce better results than what I am currently doing.
