Ubuntu :: Gnome-schedule Not Triggering - How To Make It Trigger

Aug 1, 2010

Scheduled Tasks is giving me a hard time. I have a command set for 23:00 daily as "gthumb -f ~/Pictures/ScheduledPic.jpg", but when the time rolls around, nothing happens. The strange thing is, it does work when I press "Run scheduled task." I get the same results if I select a different time or change it to "google-chrome ~/Pictures/ScheduledPic.jpg". My other scheduled task, a Perl script, works fine.

Slackware :: Triggering Udev Events: /sbin/udevadm Trigger --type=failed

Mar 14, 2010

Noticed this on boot up the other day, but it doesn't seem to have a negative effect. Everything appears to be running just fine.

"Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger --type=failed"

Is this something that needs to be resolved or ignored?

Ubuntu :: Remotely Trigger Gnome Apps Over SSH?

Jan 11, 2010

I have a keyboard&monitor damaged laptop which I've converted into a media server/HTPC with a large external monitor. I've installed Ubuntu 9.10, and attached an external 1TB HDD with my video collection. As a media player it works perfectly fine. I can connect to it through my home network, both with VNC and with SSH. I can use VNC on my current laptop to access the player's desktop and play video files. However, this is awkward as the screen resolution of the playback monitor is 1920x1080 - much bigger than the laptop's screen - which means I either end up scrolling the viewpoint around, or scaling the virtual screen down to make reading text very difficult.

What I'd like to be able to do is to trigger Gnome applications - specifically the Totem video player - via a SSH session, on the current Gnome desktop. The idea is that I'd like to be able to browse the directories which house my video collection in SSH, launch the player in the session, and have it appear on the monitor. Ultimately, I'd like to be able to invoke this from a PHP script - thus allowing me to create a (simple) web application on a LAMP installation which would allow me to browse & play my video collection. Currently, when I try and invoke totem, it seems to want to connect the invocation of the software to the SSH session, which - of course - it can't do. Where I might start in trying to set this up?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: SD Card Not Triggering PCI Backend After Boot?

Apr 21, 2011

When an SD card is inserted before/at boot time, everything works fine, meaning recognized by kernel and mounted to userspace.When an SD card is inserted after boot time, the kernel doesn't 'see' the hardware change not triggered, so no block device /dev/mmcblk0{p1}, so nothing to mount.This behavior is not openSuSE specific, when booting SystemRescueCD-2.0.1, the same behavior is noticed.SD card inserted after booting:

Server :: Hugepages Experiment - Triggering Large Page Tables

Feb 28, 2011

I am learning about linux memory and hugepages, and know that hugepages basically is just memory that manages memory. I thought I'd experiment with the subject, and wrote a very small C program [URL] that basically just eats 20 GB of memory. The idea was that I would use this small C program to see how big the page table would get when handling large areas of memory when I'm not using hugepages. After running the program on my RHEL 5 server I was expecting the PageTable to be huge, but found that it was only about 43 MB. The page size on my RHEL box i 4 kB. Why I'm not getting the major PageTable size issue I was expecting?

Software :: Syslog Alerts Not Triggering To Server (Redhat Enterprise 5)?

Nov 13, 2010

just set up a windows server and other windows boxes send alerts to it no problem.Yesterday I configured my linux box (RHEL 5) using /etc/sysconfig/syslog and /etc/syslog.conf so that all alerts would go to the syslog server.There are no external firewalls involved and while the firewall is working on my linux boxI have made sure port 514 TCP/UDP are let through.Ive checked syslogd and klogd are running.I've also applied the '*@' line in etc/syslog.conf. Basically Id like everything to go to the syslog server.Now if I telnet to the syslog server on port 514 I can type text on the linux box and it comes through on the syslog server. Great - but no syslog alerts seem to come through normally, even when I reboot the box.I've tried *., .*, and * to no avail, ive got an entry in my hosts file for the server and tried using a name instead of an ip address, no luck.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Make Gnome-mplayer Recognize Commands Like "{a6}" Inside Srt Files On 11.3 - GNOME 2.30.2

Jan 10, 2011

I use gnome-mplayer 1.0.0 and Totem Movie Player 2.30.2 to view videos Both read subtitles well from srt files. But both are not able to read {a6} command in the srt files.

NOTE:- {a6} command serves the purpose of putting the subtitles on top of the screen, making it possible for subbers to display lyrics/additional footnotes on top, while at the same time, having the dialogues to show in their usual position.

Is there are way to force either of them to read the special commands properly?

Ubuntu :: Way To Trigger Root-level Process?

Jun 29, 2010

I have what I hope someone finds to be a simple problem. I am running a data acquisition computer for a research project, where multiple people use the same non-privileged user account to take data and save it to /incoming. Once the file has been closed, I would like to somehow copy the data into a more permanent location owned by root. Obviously giving the shared user account sudo permission would be a huge security hole.

I know that this should be possible using some sort of client/server connection, but writing my own server just for this little task seems a bit cumbersome, and is something I have no experience with. Nor have I ever written a daemon/init script before.

Does anyone have any ideas on a simple procedure I could use? Very few things are fixed in stone, but the copy operation is necessary - the final location is a RAID5 array, and the write speeds are too slow to keep up with the data stream.

If a client/server type of thing really is the best way to go, anyone have any links to good tutorials to make a simple server and daemonize it?

Ubuntu :: The Script To Trigger Whenever A New File Gets Copied Or Placed On The Desktop?

Programming :: What Can Trigger A Segmentation Fault

Jan 15, 2010

I have this basic program that is supposed to scan a string for a delimiter and output which segment of the string the user wants, like awk '{print $2}'. The problem is, I always get a segmentation fault when I run the code and I can't figure out what triggered it.

Here is my code:


int main(void) {
char *string = "my name is joe";
char dlimit = ' ', *good;
int index = 2, round = 0;
int i, place = 0, t;


It keeps track of how many times the delimiter was found with round, and the position of the last found delimiter with place. index is to specify which segment of the string the user wants. One more thing, is it necessary to manually allocate memory with malloc() or calloc() when you can just initialize a variable and it be fine? Like:


int z = malloc(sizeof(int));
when you can:
int z;

Ubuntu :: Manual Method To Trigger Command-not-found Search?

Jan 15, 2010

I really like that in Ubuntu when you type in a command that's not on the system you get a message saying the package that provides that command. Unfortunately it also slows down my system, so I would like a way to trigger this manually. Something like search-command command-I-dont-have

Is there any way to do this? I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 under andLinux but would also like to use this on a regular Ubuntu 9.04 install.

Ubuntu Servers :: Trigger A Shell Script Upon DHCP Request?

May 13, 2011

Is there a way trigger a shell script after my DHCP server successfully gives out, either a specific IP address or to a specific MAC address.I have two Xbox360's in my house that both receive IP address via DHCP reservations from the Ubuntu server.I have come to accept that without having two public IP addresses getting both to have an open NAT will be very difficult. I have decided that I am OK with only one being able to have an Open NAT at a time, but I want to change the firewall rules according to which Xbox 360 turned on first. This way I can move between level in my house and play online without having to modify rules manually.

Ubuntu Servers :: Udevadm Trigger Is Not Permitted While Udev Is Unconfigured

Aug 27, 2011

I'm having a bit of a nightmare with my ubuntu hardy server (using hardware raid 1+0). Following a power cut I get the message "udevadm trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured" on boot. Before the power cut the server had been up for ~450 days.

I managed to get access to /boot (which was empty) by using the repair option on the alternate cd and mounting /dev/myserver/root. I've installed the packages linux-headers-server, linux-image-server and linux-server. The various 2.6.24-29 files were installed and update-initramfs was automatically run (I noticed others have used update-initramfs to solve this error when upgrading from 8.04 to 10.04 in some posts I've read). No luck with this though - just the same error booting. I've also tried reinstalling udev, but again with no success.

I rebooted and pressed the Esc key to get the boot menu up. Only options were for kernel 2.6.24-26 (rather than the 2.6.24-29 just installed). I ran the recovery option anyway and got "/dev/mapper/myserver-root does not exist".

General :: Trigger Off Rsync By Plugging In A USB Drive?

I'd like to know if it's possible to automatically mount, and fire up rsync to sync a USB drive with a directory? Specifically, I'd like to copy as much data as the drive can hold and only delete the oldest files if space is needed. I would assume I'd do something like this with a script, but my problem, is where to start.
