Ubuntu :: Booting Directly Into Terminal?

Jul 9, 2010

i'm running 9.10. For no reaso whatsoever that I can fathom, ubuntu now boots directly to a terminal. I use startx to get to the desktop, but if i do that, after a short while, the screen will go black and then ubuntu will take me to the GUI log-in screen. I noticed that I'f I was using firefox I would have to go into system monitor to kill the process before I could restart the browser. I also noticed while doing this that most processes seem to be running twice.

Ubuntu :: How To Boot Directly In Tty1?

May 1, 2011

Ok i start to find it boring to ALT+CTRL+F1 each time i want that when i boot it directly go to tty 1. But i also want it to load desktop environment, but not to show it, only load it, so if i ALT+CTRL+F7, it goes to desktop environment. If its not loaded, it will not go to desktop environment or it will take like 15 sec to load it, this is why i want to load it while i am in the terminal.Also, how can i switch resolution in terminal?

Ubuntu :: Boots Into Tty1 Terminal / Pressing Alt+F1 Through 6 Just Sends Into The Different Tty Terminals?

Feb 7, 2010

I bought an imac G3 yesterday and it has xubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake installed on it. When i turn it on, after it POSTs, a little xubuntu logo appears it it begins to load 'essential drivers' and mount the file system, etc. After it is done doing that, it simply prompts me into a CLI that on the top says "Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS ubuntu tty1". It asks for my username and password, and then it just keeps me in this tty1 terminal. I did some research online and supposedly by pressing alt+F7 you can exit the tty terminals and go back into GUI mode. Well pressing alt+F7 does nothing, and pressing alt+F1 through 6 just sends me into the different tty terminals.

I am very new to Linux so if someone could give me an idiot proof explanation on either how to fix it or whether im screwed and just need to reinstall xubuntu on here.

Debian :: Graphics Resolution In Tty1->tty6 - Doesn't Apply To The Terminal After The Computer Has Booted Up

Jun 23, 2010

I'm using squeeze. I wanted to know how you could determine from the command line in tty1 (or tty2 through tty6) what the resolution was that text was being displayed at. Is there a way? I know that in grub, you're supposed to be able to go to the command line and type vbeinfo. I tried this and got some information, but somehow I think it doesn't always apply to the terminal after the computer has booted up.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting Directly From An Iso?

Mar 9, 2010

I've used Ubuntu for a couple of years now, and it is by far my favorite operating system. Although, I am now reluctantly switching to Windows 7, due to lack of support for the Apple Airport Extreme.

My CD drives are incapable of recognizing the DVD that I burned of Windows 7.

My only other option now seems to be to boot directly from the Windows 7 iso that I have.

I am using Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Is Possible Booting Directly Into Failsafe Mode

Nov 26, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a machine with a dodgey graphics card. This machine will break on normal graphics mode but run fine in failsafe graphics mode. I need this machine to be able to be controlled remotely and this is where the problem comes in.

If this machine is being controlled remotely, it may need to be rebooted remotely. Rebooting it into failsafe mode at the moment consists of two prompts: one to put it into failsafe, and the other to "keep it for one session". Does anyone know how to reconfigure Grub or whatever else so it will automatically go into Failsafe Graphics mode without any user interaction? (BTW, where it asked me to "keep for one session" or "reconfigure now", I clicked reconfigure and it didn't do anything. So I need to do it manually)

Ubuntu Installation :: Error Booting 9.10 - Failed To Restore Crtc Config

Mar 3, 2010

I'm trying to boot Ubuntu from a LiveCD in a computer I recently bought that currently has Windows XP on it. The Ubuntu menu comes up when I boot but it always snags on an error "failed to restore CRTC configuration -22" or something like that, and just goes on ad infinitum.

I tried running Linux Mint too and had the same problem, which makes me think it's an issue with the computer itself - which is an Averatec, if that helps.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: When Booting Directly To XBMC Get "Failed To Initialize Audio Device"

Jun 10, 2011

have an OpenSuSE 11.4 (Linux with XBMC (10.1) installed.During installation of SuSE, I've created a user called "xbmc" and enabled autologin for this user. After XBMC have been installed I added the following to /home/xbmc/.xinitrc - "exec /usr/bin/ck-launch-session /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/xbmc --standalone -fs"... so far so good - everything is perfectly fine..... or at least almost - when trying to play some musik I get the message "Failed to initialize audio device, Check your Audio Settings"... but if I close XBMC, log in to Gnome as root, open a terminal an su to user "xbmc" and start xbmc from commandline it works if I choose "Internal Analog Audio" in System -> System -> Audio Output. Now the spooky/funny parts appears... I check the options in Audio Output I see the following:

With Autologin:

HDA Intel Defaults


When returning to auto-login - it stops working again... By the way - to be sure that it wasn't a rights-problem, I ended up changing the UID for the "xbmc"-user to "0" to ensure root-privilegies

Ubuntu :: Changing GDM Setup From Terminal?

Jun 28, 2009

I have been working on this script for my install for quite awhile and almost everything is done (installs, uninstalls, setting up wireless, etc...) but now I want to get to the....prettier stuff.

Two questions:

1. How do I add GDM themes to the list from terminal? Right now I go through the login window GUI but it'd be nice to add them without having to do it through that (so I can automate it )

2. How do I then change the setup to where I can have multiple that it chooses from and that it chooses from those I've added (again, I do this through the GUI but...you get the point)

Ubuntu :: Customizing Terminal - Changing Prompt (Maverick / Gnome)

Jun 9, 2011

To flesh out my *nix capability, I create new identities and give them the functionality that I liked in previous ones. I've added the "open terminal here" script, which I find invaluable. Now I want to change the prompt. This is what the terminal does right now:
ITo run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.

- Where do I go to shorten the prompt dramatically? I can't really think of a situation where a shorter prompt isn't better or color matters.
- How do I adios the 2 sentences that want to appear every time I open this terminal? I'm aware what sudo does.
- Instead, I would like the equivalent of a pwd command. Where would I put that?
- How do I get the output of this terminal to be simultaneously saved in a file. I do so much copying and pasting out of these terminals that I'm looking for easier ways to do it.
