Ubuntu :: Gnome-terminal In Startup Programs Doesn't Start At Login?

Mar 16, 2010

Every time I start Ubuntu, I set up an ssh session to a server. In order to automate this I made an entry in startup programs like this:/usr/bin/gnome-terminal -e '/usr/bin/ssh name@server.com'Nothing happens when I log in, and I've checked that the command works.

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Doesn't Start No Login

Jul 30, 2011

When I boot my Fedora 15 installation it shows me the blue screen with progress indicator, however I do not reach the login screen.Instead I see the textual shell where the last item is:Started Display Manager.It looks like my monitors are not detected anymore. I have been working with them though (this appeared after a restart). I am not sure how I determined it but I read in some log that no display was detected. Nothing changed to the hardware set up however.I see some suggestions to run system-config-display as root.However this command can not be found nor can it be found when I run yum install system-config-display.

Ubuntu :: Gnome-panel Doesn't Start On Login / But Gconf Settings Look Correct

Sep 5, 2010

I installed avant-window-navigator and followed these instructions to remove gnome-panel from startup: URL...However I have since uninstalled AWN and now cannot get gnome-panel to load at startup.I think I have put my settings back where they should be -- looking at them in gconf-editor:

1. desktop > gnome > session, the required_components_list is [windowmanager,filemanager,panel]

2. desktop > gnome > session > required_components_list, the panel value is "gnome-panel"

Yet gnome-panel does not load at startup. Any ideas why?Clarification: I can get gnome-panel to load by listing it under Startup Applications, but I am curious why it won't load via the gconf settings.

Ubuntu :: Removing Start Up Programs In Terminal?

Mar 11, 2010

I recently learned how to add start up programs in the terminal using the following command:

ln /usr/bin/whateverprogram ~/.kde/Autostart

This worked, but now I want to remove some start up programs using the command line. Can someone point me in the right direction to what I need to do for this?

I'm assuming that default start up programs are not links in the ~/.kde/Autostart folder because when I run:

ls -a ~/.kde/Autostart
I only find the files that I have set to start up.

Ubuntu :: Auto Start Programs In Terminal?

Sep 18, 2010

I am setting up a streaming audio server. I would like to have Darkice and sc_serv (Shoutcast server) start automagically on boot.

I have set Xubuntu (10.04) to auto login

Both Darkice and sc_serv are command line apps and I would like them to each run in their own terminal window so I can monitor any status messages they produce. For instance sc_serv displays connections disconnections with time connected, and current number of listeners, and I want to see that.

One important note: sc_serv must be up and running before Darkice can be started.

Debian Multimedia :: No Programs Start In Gnome?

Jul 1, 2010

Linux noob here with a very fresh Debian 5.04 install. Not sure if this is the correct board for this but here goes;*No* programs start in X. Terminal, System Monitor, Epiphany, Gedit, Synaptic Package Manager... They all fail to start.The programs try to start for 15 seconds after which they give up. For example, if I press the Epiphany-icon in the panel I see "Starting Epiphany We..." in the lower-left corner and the mouse cursor changes to the loading animation for 15 seconds but then after that nothing happens and the "Starting Epiphany We..."-icon disappears. I have two users (plus root of course) and the same thing happens with both accounts.

I can start the icons I have on my desktop (Computer, Home folder, Trash and Downloads) and I can Lock the screen/log off/shut down but that's about it. Oh and one more thing; sometimes when I log in everything works just fine, so this whole thing seems a bit random.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Terminal Startup Slow (11 Natty Edition)?

Aug 16, 2011

After several upgrades (from 8.xx) I noticed Gnome terminal took about 4 seconds to open an window and another 4 seconds to give me a prompt. This is excruciating when blasting out CLI in dozens of terminals ssh'd into dozens of machines. Tabs were no different.

Fix was: Comment out anything in ~/.bashrc that references xterm. BOOM less than 1s total to prompt.

If it's faster than I can get my mouse hand back to the keyboard to start blasting CLI, it's good enough

Ubuntu :: GUI Doesn't Always Start On Startup (Kubuntu)

Mar 13, 2010

A lot of times when I start up my computer, instead of the graphical login screen I'm brought to a CLI login. If I log in and do "startx," it'll start KDE, but sound doesn't work and the shutdown/restart options disappear. (The logout option is still there.) It's inconsistent; sometimes it'll start the GUI and sometimes it won't. I have yet to find out what causes it to work right and what causes it to bring me to the CLI. When it doesn't work, if I run "shutdown -r now" or "shutdown -h now," it'll start the GUI as the computer is shutting down. I've tried Ctrl+Alt+F7 when it's brought me to the CLI, but it didn't do anything

Ubuntu :: Upgrade To 10.04 And On Start Desktop Doesn't Startup

Sep 3, 2010

I recently updated to Ubuntu 10.04. On this same machine I've used Ubuntu for 3 or 4 years now. Upgrading from 8 - 9 - 10. I love Ubuntu and use it as my everyday work environment. Anyway, recently when I start my machine in the morning it boots to commandline instead of the desktop. For the last couple days I boot to safe-mode and do a package repair. Sometimes more than once. Eventually I get the desktop to start but it is annoying. When trying to boot to Fail Safe Graphics Mode(?) I get an error stating: "Fatal Server Error: No Screens." The message referred me to /var/log/Xorg/failsafe.log. Here is a snippet of the end of that log file:


Also, I'm using an NVidia graphics card on an HP machine. I installed the "current version" accelerated graphics driver which it says is proprietary.

CentOS 5 :: Set A Startup Application After GNOME Login?

Sep 16, 2011

Centos 5.6 - I'm trying to lock the screen immediately after successful gnome user login. My steps...

System > Preferences > More Preferences > Sessions > Startup Programs tab > Add

I've tried the following...

gnome-screensaver-command --lock
/usr/bin/gnome-screensaver-command --lock

Neither of these seem to work from the Sessions gui. Although from terminal I can run gnome-screensaver-command --lock with no problems.

Ubuntu :: No GNOME Login Sound Item In Startup Applications?

Aug 5, 2010

In Lucid Lynx, I am trying to change my GNOME login sound, and I find you can't do it under System -> Preferences -> Sounds anymore. So I followed the recommendation of every search result relating to "gnome login sound" and tried to modify it under System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications. However, there is nothing relating to the GNOME Login Sound or any other login sound in my startup applications list.

How do I add GNOME Login Sound to make it an option in the Startup Applications list? How could it not be there to begin with?

CentOS 5 Server :: Start X At Startup Without Running Login Screen?

Jan 12, 2011

I am setting up a CentOS server that has no screen connected, and only has 2 Tesla cards. I have created a minimal xorg.conf and xinitrc file that doesn't load mouse or keyboard, and only creates two screens, one for each card at 320x200x24 bit. This is so I don't waste VRAM on a framebuffer I can't see.

I modified the xinitrc to just load tdm and nothing else as GNOME is a RAM hog. I am then using this setup to render stuff offscreen using OpenGL into FBOs which I read back to CPU and process. Currently for development I just run startx& when I login. I now want to know how to set x server to start automatically at boot. The CentOS docs say that it will try to load the GNOME login manager. The thing is that I don't want a login manager as it is useless as I login remotely via SSH.So:

1 - how to enable automatic x server in CentOS (im used to Ubuntu so not sure how to do this on Red Hat variants)

2 - leave x server running without starting login manager

Ubuntu :: Gnome-terminal Not A Login Shell / Why Is So?

Mar 3, 2011

I've seen lots of posts all over the Internet that advise users to check the "Run command as a login shell" checkbox in GNOME Terminal under Edit->Profile Preferences->Title and Command.

This makes gnome-terminal run bash/csh/tcsh/ksh as a login shell, which it does not do by default. In turn, running gnome-terminal as a login shell sources the system and user login scripts. This sets up things like colored ls etc.

It seems like gnome-terminal should be a login shell by default. Why isn't it? I've never seen a good explanation of why gnome-terminal isn't a login shell. The "Run command as a login shell" checkbox must be unchecked by default for some good reason, right?

Fedora Networking :: Nmbd Doesn't Want To Start At System Startup

Jan 25, 2010

I It does not start when the system boots. The smbd daemon is present and there are no suspicious messages in the system log, dmesg or the samba logs. The nmb service *is* enabled at all of the relevant run levels and does start if I issue the command "service nmb start" as root after I log in. This particular box's networking is 802.11n via a usb port and is under the control of the network manager. I have another fedora 12 box with an internal intel 5100 802.11n card and it does not have this problem.

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Terminal At Kde Start?

Apr 26, 2011

I installed gnome 3.0 through the one installer, and now every time I start kde I get a gnome terminal that says

** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowState' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'
** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowActions' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'
** (orca:4321): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowMoveResizeMask' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'

It keeps shrinking everytime I try to expand it a bit, I had to edit > select all and copy to be able to read it. And it sounds like it's trying to play a sound that sounds like welcome, but it gets cut off, it also makes a sound when closing it. I'm assuming this was supposed to be a first time run thing for gnome but it keeps showing up in kde.

Ubuntu :: Keybinding To Fokus Gnome-terminal Or Start A New One?

Jun 14, 2010

I was just wondering if this was possible without using guake or yakuake or the like: I have a shortcut (alt+shift+c) to open a gnome-terminal window. (done via compiz keyboard commands)However, what if I wanted it to fokus a gnome-terminal (specific?) if one(it) exists and only start a new terminal, if it isn't already running? I looked up and down the compiz settings, not seeing anything to help me focus a specific window.

Fedora Networking :: Cannot Start GNS3 Gnome-terminal In F13

Cannot start gnome-terminal -t R1 -e 'telnet 2000' > /dev/nul/2>&1 &:No such file or directory

Then i decided to use the xterm client instead. But still didn't work


Cannot start xterm -T R1 -e 'telnet 2000' >/dev/null 2>&1 &: No such file or directory

The last option I had was using Kconsole (linux kde) but still it doesn't work. And i get the same error message


Cannot start /usr/lib/kde4/bin/konsole --new-tab -p tabtitle=R1 -e telnet 2000 >/dev/null 2>&1 &: No such file or directory

General :: Start Server With GUI (kde/gnome) To Terminal By Default?

Jun 13, 2011

I've set up home server, which doesn't have to be as powerful as other servers, so I decided to install GUI because of applications that are alternatives to classical GUI applications in headless version requires more skill/knowledge. However, I don't want server to run GUI always at start (which gnome-desktop package does). I need some configuration in KDE/gnome/xfce (haven't decided) that doesn't start GUI after each start (e.g is required to type startx or equivalent command to start GUI)(off topic: can you also recommend good remote-administration with GUI transport ?)
