Ubuntu :: Differences Between The Byobu Terminal And The Default Terminal?
Jul 20, 2011
When I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, the Byobu terminal was installed. What are the differences between the Byobu terminal and the default terminal(I mean the terminal that is default in 10.10)? Is it more advantageous to use Byobu?
I mainly use debian jessie , recently i have installed daragora as my second os to get a feel of gnu/linux . the problem is that dragora uses bash , and it's commands are different from debian jessie terminal is there a way that i can use the same commands here in dragora?
What are the differences between shell , console & terminal?
This probably sounds like a stupid question but I'm having a lot of trouble clearly differentiating between a shell (such as Bourne or bash) and the Terminal application in GNOME. I realise that both are completely different but I can't seem to find a clear answer written in text. Could anyone clearly distinguish between both?
I have come across the use of the term terminal, virtual terminals/consoles, real-text terminals but do not understand what terminal refers to. Does it refer to the screen that is in-front of me whilst I post this question or does it refer to something specific?EDITI came across a similar post at What are the differences between shell , console & terminal? and it seems to be similar to the one I posted although am still confused about the use of the sentence Decades ago, this was a physical device consisting of little more than a monitor and keyboard. What does this device look like and how is different to a monitor?
I'm running a small server on a Lubuntu install, and I'd like to have new terminals start in Byobu, or at least screen. However, I can't figure out how to make Byobu start automatically. The built-in "Start Byobu with login" option doesn't seem to do anything, although it does add a line to my ~/.profile. How can I set Byobu as my default shell?
Open a new terminal either in tab or new windows,The default work directory is $HOMEDoes anyone know how to change it to `pwd`, so every time a new terminal starts form the same path as the mother terminal (the terminal user calls new from).
I do a lot of torrenting on my xubuntu box, and ever since my introduction to computers, I have become attracted to the command-line way of doing things. My default editor is vi, my default torrent programme is rtorrent, my default gopher client is lynx... you get the idea. My web browsing, and sometimes also my file browsing, however, is always in graphical mode.
As you know, downloading a torrent involves downloading a small file with the extension .torrent. When I clicked on this .torrent file, although I have rtorrent installed, Transmission showed up. Not to insult the Transmission guys, but compared to an ncurses-based torrent client, Transmission is just too bloated. Anyhow, I right-clicked on the file, Open With Other Application, etc.
Into the box that showed up, I typed /usr/bin/rtorrent (the path to my favourite torrent client), and clicked OK. I double-clicked on the torrent file again, and nothing. Transmission didn't show up, but neither did my terminal client. I'm sick of having to go to the Applications menu and firing up the Terminal to torrent a file. I'd like to have the Terminal open up with rtorrent as soon as I double click the file.
How can I edit the system proxy setting using the terminal? Which file contains this settings? I want to edit this automatically using cronjobs, cause from 8-5 I need to use a proxy, but at home I don't need the proxy. How do I fix this?
Linux-goers. I did some research on this, but I am still fairly new to Linux. In Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick), I accidentally overwrote my "/bin/bash" file. Dude, using "sudo" with a small typo can work disasters. Bash is now broken in the Terminal (gnome-terminal). Terminal itself still works fine, technically, but bash is still hosed/broken. Here is what I did to try to fix it: Booted from Ubuntu 10.10 live CD. Mounted my Ubuntu partition and manually copied the good/fresh "bash" file onto my hard drive. Verified copy was successful. Didn't help, as you see. Reinstalled "gnome-terminal" using synaptic package manager. Tried to reinstall bash via synaptic, it failed with error, "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/bash_4.1-2ubuntu4_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 2"
In Terminal, all basic commands work as far as I can tell. ("ls", "pwd", navigation, etc.) Here are some problems:My "username@computername" does not display in the prompt; only the $ sign. Bash keyboard shortcuts such as uparrow and tab do not work. Instead, each inserts a key code. I can't even move the cursor left/right. Aliases (a function of bash and .bashrc) are broken, of course. My sanity level decreases when I use Terminal now. For what it's worth, even with "sudo" I get a "permission denied" error when trying to run Google Chrome! I read something about a ".bashrc" file being a possible problem, but I don't know how to make it work, or the file's proper locations in Ubuntu 10.10. Is there something I can do with a "make" or "apt-get install" command or something?? Could this simply be a permissions problem? Is the link to "/bin/bash", "/bin/sh", or a ".bashrc" file broken? Guide me, oh Linux gurus.
P.S. I always wondered what exactly bash was and how it was different from the basic terminal. LoL, this is an excellent way to demonstrate the difference, and I WANT IT BACK!
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.
I was trying to install google earth. This is what I did:1. Open a terminal and change to the directory where the installer downloaded to. (on desktop) :cd ~/Desktop2. Change the permissions on the installer so you can run it:chmod +x GoogleEarthLinux.bin3. Run the installer as the root user:sudo ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin4. The installer dialog will open. The default install paths work fine. Click Begin Install.Once the installation is finished you can click Start to launch Google Earth.HOW DO I CHANGE BACK TO THE CORRECT DIRECTORY IN THE TERMINAL
After updating/upgrading my packages this morning, the terminal profile preferences screen (Edit > Profile Preferences) no longer had the option at the bottom for setting the default terminal size. This is a problem because the default size went from the 132x43 I had set it to down to 80x24. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on three machines and had this problem on all of them. After noticing the problem on the first machine, I checked the option screens of the other machines before upgrading. The default size option was there before the upgrades, but after upgrading, it was gone.
Here is the aptitude log from the upgrade: [UPGRADE] ant 1.7.1-4ubuntu1 -> 1.7.1-4ubuntu1.1 [UPGRADE] ant-gcj 1.7.1-4ubuntu1 -> 1.7.1-4ubuntu1.1 [UPGRADE] ant-optional 1.7.1-4ubuntu1 -> 1.7.1-4ubuntu1.1 [UPGRADE] ant-optional-gcj 1.7.1-4ubuntu1 -> 1.7.1-4ubuntu1.1 [UPGRADE] gnome-terminal 2.29.6-0ubuntu5 -> 2.30.2-0ubuntu1 [UPGRADE] gnome-terminal-data 2.29.6-0ubuntu5 -> 2.30.2-0ubuntu1 [UPGRADE] google-chrome-stable 6.0.472.62-r59676 -> 6.0.472.63-r59945 [UPGRADE] libphonon4 4:4.6.2-0ubuntu5 -> 4:4.6.2-0ubuntu5.1 .....
It's almost surely gnome-terminal or gnome-terminal-data, but I included the full list just in case. What are my options for fixing this? Should I try rolling back the upgrade? Should I not bother with that and just try setting the default terminal size through other means?
Ques-1 what is the default bashrc and how i can set path java and tomcat?
Ques -2 When I start the terminal it showing the following line ? How i cat solve this?
Command 'lesspipe' is available in the following places

The command could not be located because '/usr/bin:/bin' is not included in the PATH environment variable. lesspipe: command not found Command 'dircolors' is available in '/usr/bin/dircolors' The command could not be located because '/usr/bin' is not included in the PATH environment variable.
I just installed CentOS 5.2, and would like for xterm to be my default terminal instead of the gnome-terminal. I was able to do this on a RHEL4 system and Fedora 9, but I can't figure out how to do it in CentOS.
Here's the output of uname:
Linux 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 #1 SMP Tue Dec 16 11:57:43 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I'd like to run a program [URL] from the GUI menu (yes, I know I can run it from the command line). I've gotten this to work by using a menu entry (see attached screenshot).The command is:
with the option for Type: was selected as Application in Terminal However, when chkrootkit is finished, the terminal immediately snaps shut according to the profile selection: When Commands Exits: Close terminal What I'd like to do is create another profile that causes the terminal to be held open (see screenshot) when the command exits and be able to choose that profile from the GUI Menu entry. I believe the command when using the CLI is:
how do I incorporate this within the Command entry line of the launcher?
i started using computer when it was all dos driven so thought i was going to be fine using the terminal in ubuntu the problem i am facing is i can not quite get my head round why is it if i load the terminal. and the first this i type is dir or ls it gives me a list off directories. So why is it if i type cd /pictures i get no such file or directory ? Confused
This also bugging the jebus out off me is i am trying to get into my usb pen drive from the terminal to run a program i have on there.
so i type cd /media then typed ls is displayed New Volume <-- This being the name off my pen drive i have tried every this to get into there but the commands i would use in dos are not playing ball.
Can some one please explain how to get into my usb pen then tell me were i can go read on this as i really can not get my head around this at moment.
For some reason bash is acting really really weird. When I use my gui terminal, and I tryto use tab completion, it freezes up the terminal, and I can't edit the line at all unless I do a ctrl+c.and when I try to do tab completion in text only mode it prints out : "Error: Can't open display: (null)"again and again and again, and I have to do a ctrl+c, also in text only mode it will randomly log me out. I have tried checking for blown caps, but there weren't any, and all the other programs work fine except for the command line. I am using bash version: 4.1.5(1)-releaseand gnome-terminal version: 2.30.2
Recently I've updated from 13 to 14. However, after updated I've tried to work with my terminal and it seems doesn't works fine. I can read 'starting terminal' but after that it's closed.I've uninstalled and re-installed it through the graphical tools (gnome-terminal) but that doesn't works fine.
