Ubuntu :: Kill Application Automatically After Login?

Jan 9, 2011

I am using kvkbd as an onscreen keyboard and I have it set to start on the login screen but after I login I want the keyboard to close and I can not get this to work. At the bottom of /etc/gdm/Init/DefaultI added the line.Code:exec kvkbd&This works great and kvkbd starts up and even puts a panel icon at the bottom of the login screen but after the login the keyboard is still there?I have tried making a launcher and adding it to the startup applications. I wrote a script and put it in the /usr/sbin and /usr/bin and also added a line at the bottom of my /etc/rc.local that should have run that same script to kill kvkbd and nothing. The really weird thing is that the launcher that I made would work if I double clicked on it but if i had it set to run as a startup application it would not work.

Ubuntu :: How To Kill An Application Conclusively

I'm trying to kill an android SDK emulator but it just won't shut down. When I try to kill it through system monitor (see pics) it doesn't work, "killall program_name" doesn't work either. It stays firm and all I have left is to reboot Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Hotkey To Kill Application?

May 14, 2011

I had opened Thunderbird and discovered I had no cursor control. Couldn't close it, couldn't exit it, couldn't switch windows. I couldn't even shut down using that button.

I figured there must be a kill command similar to Windoze cntrl + alt + del that would allow me to close that application.Is there such a keyboard hot key for doing this?

Ubuntu :: How To Kill Unresponsive Terminal Application

Feb 7, 2011

I just ran "mysqld" manually in the terminal, but now I can't quit it and go back to bash. I've tried CTRL+C and typing "reset", but neither do anything. Anything I type is just ignored. I've had this numerous times in the past with various operating systems and in various scenario's, hence why I'm seeking the solution. Is there some universal hotkey to quit the currently running application or something? I guess I'm looking for a way to send SIGQUIT, SIGTERM or possibly even a EOF signal?

Sep 27, 2010

How do I kill a python application from the command line? For an example I have 2 applications running. The first is bleachbit and the second is furiusisomount. They are both python applications so they both come up as python under process name. I could kill them by ID number but if there was another way to do it so that it could be automated in a bash script.

General :: Automatically Kill Processes That Over Time Uses 95%+ Of Resources?

May 3, 2010

I don't know about your computer but when mine is working properly no process is sucking 95%+ over time. I would like to have some failsafe that kills any processes behaving like that. This comes to mind because when I woke up this morning my laptop had been crunching all night long on a stray chromium child process.

This can probably be done as a cron job, but before I make it a full time job creating something like this I'd thought I should check here. :) I hate reinventing the wheel.

Ubuntu :: Run Application Before Gdm (login Screen Or Auto Login)

Feb 22, 2010

I have program that work like Fedora Firstboot it's run only one time after finish installation. I have two questions to ask.

1. How can I start this application before gdm start (login screen or auto login)

2. How can I start this application in fix display resolution (800x600)

My method now is

(This is a part of script , this script execute from /etc/init.d/myfirstboot , I create symlink to /etc/rc2.d/S1myfirstboot for start it before anything)

gdm-stop # first time I use /etc/init.d/gdm stop
export DISPLAY
/usr/bin/Xorg :1 &


I don't understand why first time firstboot start the system will auto loging in but not complete yet and then my script is start and it's work does not fine I think that is another user is already login , but if I re run my firstboot again and again (by setting something that can revoke my firstboot and restart) it's work before auto login and every things is ok!

General :: Application Connects To Net And Then Closes Automatically

Mar 31, 2011

I work from home writing web content, and need the use of an article spinner tool called "The Best spinner". It is an .exe file and I installed it in my Mint Debian edition machine using wine, and everything is fine except for one thing. The app opens out, connects to the net, and then closes automatically. In fact if I check on the internet activity, I can see the app downloading the latest version, but the problem is that always it closes within a few seconds leaving me no other choice other than to log into a windows machine to work on it.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the app a couple of times but it does not seem to have helped. It requires the .net packages in winetricks, and I read that wine does not support net very well, yet the app is installed and even connects to the net. I don't understand the underlying process of how windows apps work in wine. Any work around considering that I never log into windows for anything other than using this app, a workaround means that windows is gone forever from my life.

Software :: Unable To Kill Process With Kill -9

Jan 13, 2011

the process is mcelog. When I do as root kill -9 2323 which is pid of mcelog the process is not killed. I tried doing the same from top, press K and enter pid of mcelog. doing ps auwx | grep mcelog I see there are several results. I tried killing all of them like kill -9 2355 2341 3425 2345. But re-running the above commands still shows them as running. How else would I troubleshoot this to avoid restarting of the box.

Software :: Dual Monitors - Make An Application Automatically Open On Second Monitor?

Jul 20, 2011

I am using Fedora 15 with dual monitors. I want to make an application open automatically on the second monitor. In particular I would like to make Firefox open on the second monitor. For now I am just manually moving Firefox to the second monitor, but if I close it down and open it again, it automatically opens on the first monitor. Is there a way to make it automatically open on the second monitor?

I have two Nvidia cards in my machine. I did have one monitor connected to each video card, but I was unable to get a dual monitor set up to work like this, so I plugged both monitors into one card and the dual monitor set up works fine like. Is there a way to make dual monitors work if you have a monitor connected to each video card? When I had a monitor connected to each video card, I could see the second monitor in the Nvidia settings, but it always disabled it. I could enable it, but it would grey out twin view. After I enabled it, I'll restart the X server, the second monitor would auto disable again.

I'm using Gnome, I don't have the above issue in Xfce4 - it works fine with one monitor connected to each card in Xfce4. However, I want to use Gnome. I've searched, but have not been able to find a solution to either of these issues. I read you can fix the application to launch in a second monitor with wmctrl. I've tried to install it with yum, but I get the message: No package wmctrl available.

Ubuntu Installation :: Keyring - Computer Is Set To Login Automatically ?

Jun 9, 2010

I upgraded to 10.04 this morning and all seems well except when the computer boots up I'm prompted to enter my password to unlock the login keyring.

Until I do that I can't do anything else, including getting a screengrab of the prompt, hence the attachment was taken with my mobile phone.

I didn't have to do this in 9.10 and don't remember changing anything to stop this.

My computer is set to login automatically so I don't really want the bother of entering my password (I know, I know, security, etc etc).

Ubuntu :: Rememberrunning Applications - Windows - Reopened Automatically At Login ?

Feb 7, 2011

I would like that the windows I am working on are reopened automatically at login, so I checked

System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications -> Options Tab -> Check Automatically remember running applications when logging out.

It works but, unfortunately, sometimes windows are reopened in different workspaces. I have six workspaces and I usually keep a lot of windows opened, so rearranging them takes long.

Is there a way to ensure that windows are reopened in the same workspace?

General :: F14 - OpenVPN Disconnect Automatically After Login

Jan 15, 2011

I'm using openvpn under linux OS which is Fedora Core 14, in the folder "/etc/openvpn" i put 5 files which belongs to the network server that I should connect to, files are :
two files with the extension ".crt"
two files with the extension ".key"
one file with the extension ".conf"

Now, when I issue the following command (as root) :
/etc/init.d/openvpn start
It asks for my username & password to the network server, & after I entered the required authentication information, I successfully login, but I get disconnected automatically after two or three seconds.

- I connect to the network without any disconnection or problems under windows
- I use openvpn version "openvpn-2.1.1-2.fc13.i686"
- there was a bug in my OS "Fedora core 14" which is that I cannot activate or deactivate any ethernet cards, which solved by disabling NetworkManager in all run levels
- I disabled iptables
- I disabled selinux
- I got this error in /var/log/messages file when I disconnect from the openvpn network "

Jan 15 21:45:15 ViRuS openvpn[4143]: script failed: could not execute external program
Jan 15 21:45:15 ViRuS openvpn[4143]: Exiting
