General :: Terminal Window Has To Be Open For Browser To Work

Jun 15, 2011

I just love Linux! I am using Fedora 14 and just starting out. I am curious as to why is that when I click the Firefox icon to launch the internet from the menu bar a Linux terminal window has to be open. If I close that particular terminal, (which by the way says "Terminal" and does not show my chosen host name) Firefox closes. If I go to Applications, then Internet, then Firefox to launch the browser, the terminal doesn't open.

Programming :: PHP - Browser Doesn't Open The File Only To Download

Apr 12, 2010

I'm currently on LinuxMint. I'd like to start PHP scripting, but the browser doesn't want to open the file, only to download. I've red the description on Ubuntu's site how to bring apache2 and PHP together, but it simply cannot find php module. How on earth can I force Linux to act as a normal OS?

Fedora :: Gnome 3 Open File Dialog Not Talking To Browser?

Aug 25, 2011

I suspect this is a Gnome 3 problem and not a Fedora problem, but I have no way to separate the two here. I cannot upload an image from my computer to Weebly or to Google Plus, but strangely enough, I can upload one to Picasa. The sequence of actions goes something like this:

1. Open Weebly editing interface, add a picture element, click on the element to edit/add a picture. It then gives you a choice: from your local computer, from the web, etc.

2. Click on 'from local computer' and my computer opens the Open File Dialog Window.I am guessing that is its name, it is the same window you get when opening a file in any other application, like Gedit or LibreOffice.

3. Navigate to the image I want to upload and double click on it or select 'Open'.

4. Nothing happens.

I am able to upload images from my laptop, running Linux Mint 11 with Gnome 2.

It sounds to me like the Open File Window is not passing on the necessary information to the browser. I have no idea why it works in Picasa and not in Google+ or Weebly.

I don't really expect anyone to have a solution just yet, but I wanted to mention it somewhere, and I didn't see any Gnome.org forums. On the other hand, if someone does have a solution, great.

This is by no means a knock on Gnome 3, it is fine with me and I Iike it a lot more than I thought I would.

Debian :: Nautilus File Browser - Open Folder By Using The Shift And F4 Keys

Mar 21, 2011

In the kde realm, with the dolphin file browser, I can open a terminal in whatever folder is in the gui by using the shift and f4 keys. I'd like to be able to accomplish the same in gnome with the nautilus file browser but can't figure out how to do same. So far I have to open a terminal and then cd to the desired folder. Or do I have to use some other file browser and which one?

Software :: Open A Terminal With A New Environment File?

Jun 14, 2011

I am playing around with OpenFOAM which is an application for CFD Analysis but anyway, I have a cshrc file which contains all the environment variables for running the program but rather than source these all the time as some of them conflict I want to be able to use a launcher program which opens a gnome-terminal and then sources this cshrc file. This is what I have so far but I am struggling:


gnome-terminal --command="source /etc/openfoam.cshrc"

When I run this command nothing happens! I have also tried this:


source /etc/openfoam.cshrc

This opens the terminal but does not source the file.

General :: Logging - How To Keep A Live-updating Log File Open In Terminal

May 20, 2011

This must've been done before: I want to keep a log file open in terminal so I can monitor updates to it as they occur. My searches are coming up with everything but this situation... I must be missing some terminology or something key, because people do this all the time inside of other programs (NetBeans, or rails server, for example).

Ubuntu :: How To Change Terminal App For Nautilus-open-terminal

Dec 1, 2010

I've fallen in love with Terminator as a replacement for the standard gnome-terminal app.

However, I'm also very much in the habit of using the nautilus-open-terminal extension for launching new terminal sessions.

I'd like nautilus-open-terminal to launch Terminator rather than gnome-terminal.

A quick search of my system and the web didn't reveal anything. i didn't find a gconf setting to control this. A quick look at the source code didn't help much either.

Fedora :: Can't Open Terminal To Correct ICEauthority Error - Can't Update IECauthority File : /var/gdb/.IECauthority"

Mar 13, 2010

Whenever I boot my fedora 12, even before asking me for my login name, etc., there comes a message saying "Can't update IECauthority file : /var/gdb/.IECauthority" and hangs at the place. Even the mouse doesn't move. If I were able to open the terminal somehow, perhaps by changing the file permissions, I could get something. Also, when I boot from ubuntu 9.10 and try seeing what's in the /var directory of fedora, it doesn't show anything, even if I display the hidden files. If the directory gdb doesn't exist, why is it showing the error ?

Ubuntu :: Create A Command That Will Open Terminal And Keep It Open?

Jul 30, 2010

I have a problem that I can't seem to figure out. I can easily create a .sh file that will execute a command in Terminal, but as soon as it executes the terminal disappears. How do I get it to stay? My idea is to have the keyboard shortcut "ctrl+alt+del" open a .sh file with the contents "ps ax". Then it would be just like having a task manager; the terminal would open with "ps ax" already executed, and all I would have to do is kill the process number.

Ubuntu :: Using Terminal To Browser External HDD?

May 7, 2011

I'm running Fedora 14 but thought terminal commands are much the same through all linux OS's. I open a terminal, I type...

[mitch@mitch /]$ cd /media
[mitch@mitch media]$ ls
3c403cc9-9f0c-4035-9148-6242daf8da84 My Book
[mitch@mitch media]$ cd /media/My Book
bash: cd: /media/My: No such file or directory
[mitch@mitch media]$

So i open Partition Manager cause i remember there been another directory to it under "/dev/sdc1", Sure enough it was, So i enter.

[mitch@mitch /]$ cd /dev/sdc1
bash: cd: /dev/sdc1: Not a directory
[mitch@mitch /]$

What am i doing, Is The link between the linux file system and the external not seen as a directory so to speak if that makes any sense? There's no particular reason i NEED to do this, It's justb bugging me that i can't get into it.

Ubuntu :: Stop User - From Launching A Browser From Terminal

Jun 30, 2011

How do I stop a user, from gaining access to the internet(port) via a restricted browser? In other words, I want a general user to only to have access to Firefox and no other browsers.

My first approach so far, has been to write a bash shell script. It terminates a program based on keywords from known browsers (opera, asus, ect).

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10, and I can't open any folders. Nor can I put any files onto my desktop. I read on another thread that you should try reinstalling Nautilus, so I did that, and nothing changed. I also tried to open a folder in the Terminal, in this case the downloads folder, and I got this.

Slackware :: Best Text / Terminal Based Browser?

I can use Links and do not have too much trouble navigating, but I have not been able to set the screen to view the entire page (I have to move off screen to read the whole page.) So, if anyone knows an easier text browser that is a little easier to set the screen options with code...
