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.

Ubuntu :: Error - Cannot Open Display - 0 - When Opening Any GTK Application From The Terminal

May 13, 2011

For awhile I have had this issue with the command line and every time I try to complete any command that requires GTK graphics, It always returns the error "Error: cannot open display: 0:" The "EXPORT display" command that I normally use to fix this issue is not working. The only issue that I can think might be the cause for this could be my upgrade to natty (which was in fact a clean installation), or when I edited plymouth so that the startup and shutdown animations would match my laptop's native resolution (by the way I would also appreciate it if I could do the same with the startup animation, only the shutdown really works). If anybody know how I could resolve this issue I would greatly appreciate it. Oh and for specifics on my machine, I am using an ASUS N82 with an NVIDIA GEFORCE GT335M graphics card, running Ubuntu 11.04.

Ubuntu :: Minimize Open Terminal Window To An Icon On My Taskbar?

Aug 1, 2010

I have a desktop computer and a NAS, running Kubuntu & Ubuntu. I use WOL to wake the NAS and then mount the drives (NFS) on my desktop.
I've placed an icon on my KDE desktop which wakes the NAS and mounts the drives, this works great, but I've set it to run in terminal so I can enter the password for mounting the drives. This leaves me with an open window which I don't want to close because the NAS is set to shutdown 15 minutes after ssh logout.
My question is how can I minimize the open terminal window to an icon on my taskbar?

General :: Terminal Window Has To Be Open For Browser To Work

Jun 15, 2011

I just love Linux! I am using Fedora 14 and just starting out. I am curious as to why is that when I click the Firefox icon to launch the internet from the menu bar a Linux terminal window has to be open. If I close that particular terminal, (which by the way says "Terminal" and does not show my chosen host name) Firefox closes. If I go to Applications, then Internet, then Firefox to launch the browser, the terminal doesn't open.

Ubuntu :: Create A Command That Will Open Terminal And Keep It Open?

Jul 30, 2010

I have a problem that I can't seem to figure out. I can easily create a .sh file that will execute a command in Terminal, but as soon as it executes the terminal disappears. How do I get it to stay? My idea is to have the keyboard shortcut "ctrl+alt+del" open a .sh file with the contents "ps ax". Then it would be just like having a task manager; the terminal would open with "ps ax" already executed, and all I would have to do is kill the process number.

Ubuntu :: Open Terminal Command In 10.04?

Nov 27, 2010

In Xubuntu 9.04 I could right click in any directory folder and have the option of opening a terminal window "there". So the terminal command line would open preloaded to that directory. I know, I'm lazy, but it sure made life (and command line work) easier. But it's not available in my new install of Ubuntu 10.04. Now, I know that my gui environment has changed from xfce to gnome, but I would have expected MORE features, not less.

Debian Multimedia :: Xcompmgr 'master' - Rounded Window Borders Don't Draw And Redraw Properly When Using The Terminal (gnome-terminal And The LXDE And Xfce Ones)

Aug 26, 2011

I find xcompmgr more than adequate for making a desktop look pretty modern, and I don't like the more extravagentCompiz gimmicks - but there is one thing that irritates when using xcompmgr which someone here might have worked round.

Rounded window borders don't draw and redraw properly when using the Terminal (gnome-terminal and the LXDE and Xfce ones) or system monitor and moving them from their default place. You get this little white botch at the corners. I'm not massively technical and I'm ambivalent about how much more I want to learn as I have plenty of creative outlets already, but I would like to solve this. Somehow xcompmgr is treating these programs as a different class? It's capable of drawing the window borders properly as it is just these two programs that get botched. Possibly this doesn't get noticed as maybe people usually use xcompmgr with openbox and LXDE and their square window borders. I did do a search but there was nothing matching what I saw.

General :: Create A New Terminal Window From The Command Line In RHEL 5.3

May 18, 2011

I use putty to get to my RHEL 5.3 workstation from my Windows laptop.

Typically, if I want a new terminal on my windows 7 workstation from another terminal or mc, I have to type start and I will see a new terminal window running the default shell.

QUESTION : What is the equivalent command in RHEL 5.3 (and or solaris) to create a new terminal window from the command line ? I will be entering this command from the shell prompt or mc's command line.

In Windows, if I want to start another terminal and in that terminal, I want to run a program, I can do "start program.exe arg1 arg2". this will create a new terminal window and runs program.exe in that terminal window. I don't have to create a terminal and then in a separate step run the program. How can I do this in Linux ?

Ubuntu :: Command To Open Partition From Terminal

Mar 2, 2011

I am trying to use a command to open a partition or disc from the top like open up external drive, and not have to be externaldrive/videos or whatever. The reason being is to use in cairo dock, I have tried to drag n drop like i am able to with regular folders, but no good. I seen the option to run a command, and figured I would try it that way.

I have the partitions and discs i want to access mounted. they are:
External Drive (/dev/sdc1)
Storage (/dev/sdb1)
Windows (/dev/sda2)

I tried to open them in terminal, /media/storage: no such file or directory;
/dev/sdc1: Permission denied;
open /media/storage or /dev/sdc1
Couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console;
se7en@PC:~$ nautilus /media/storage or nautilus /dev/sdc1 .....

Along with a pop-up saying 'the location is not a folder'.

Ubuntu :: How To Change Terminal App For Nautilus-open-terminal

Dec 1, 2010

I've fallen in love with Terminator as a replacement for the standard gnome-terminal app.

However, I'm also very much in the habit of using the nautilus-open-terminal extension for launching new terminal sessions.

I'd like nautilus-open-terminal to launch Terminator rather than gnome-terminal.

A quick search of my system and the web didn't reveal anything. i didn't find a gconf setting to control this. A quick look at the source code didn't help much either.

Ubuntu :: How To Make Rsync Command Open In Terminal

Sep 14, 2010

I have the following rsync command for making some backups:
rsync -r --progress --delete -H --numeric-ids -a --exclude=.gvfs /source /media/Backup
If I paste that in my Terminal, it will perform a backup of all the files and show me what's going on in the Terminal window. But how can I make that into a launcher? I have made a launcher on my desktop with that code in its Properties, but double-clicking it starts the rsync process (I can see HDD activity) but a Terminal window won't open.

Fedora :: Open Multi Processes (command) Using Only One Terminal?

Apr 28, 2010

I just switch to fedora from windows recently. And I love the terminal of fedora alot. The problem is when I run some command on the terminal, I need to wait for that command to finish before executing another command. This is very inconvinient, say If I open eclipse using the terminal, this eclipse program will hog to the terminal until I closed it. So if I want to use terminal again I have to open another one.Hence the question is: Is there any way open multi processes(command) using only one terminal?
