Ubuntu :: Search Recent Terminal Activity - "warning This Will Make Permanent Changes To System Want To Proceed"

Apr 2, 2011

i have auto login and a ultra simple admin password, so it wasn't hard for them to mess with stuff...so when i came home i see that they had gone into terminal and added something to my system. i cant recall what it was because as soon as i saw in the history "warning this will make permanent changes to your system do you want to proceed" and the falling yes i got up and started bitching out my roommate and when i was gone someone had closed terminal. i was wondering is there is a way to search my recent terminal activity to see what was done so i can then find out if i can fix what was done?. or is there another option i should look into?

Ubuntu :: Re-map Touchpad Corners And Make It Permanent ( Even After System Restart )?

Feb 14, 2011

just can't find the answer for this one (after Google and these forums) So I want to configure my Synaptics touchpad in this fashion:

synclient RTCornerButton=8 RBCornerButton=10 LTCornerButton=11 LBCornerButton=12 FastTaps=1 This line of code does what it's intended of it. However, the changes made don't really stick after a system reboot.I'll explain:

So, the "FastTaps" part works flawlessly (as intended). However, the corners bit doesn't work after system reboot!...and weird enough, if I set up a start up script with that bit of code on it it'll only remap the last two corners (LT and LB), because RT and RB always get automatically set to "2" and "3". It's obvious then that those corners are getting remaped somewhere I haven't found yet. I've already tried ppa:yurivkhan/ppa and adding new options to "usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf" to no avail either. how to make the remap of touchpad corners permanent? P.S. - I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS with Macbuntu.

General :: Make Gnome Terminal App Support Output Search?

Oct 2, 2010

Using a default terminal and bash, there is no functionality to search the standard output of commands.

One can gain such functionality using other tools, like emacs shell or screen, but I am wondering why such a useful feature is missing, I do remember a simple C-F used to work in terminals.

Is there a way to make the Gnome terminal app support output search? or is there a better terminal app that support searching output natively?

General :: Make Shell Script Wait For A Particular Key Pressed In Order To Proceed?

Jan 30, 2010

i've been searching all over the internet for a way to let the user press a particular key let's say 'y' without the user having to press [Enter] as confirmationfor yes, this would then run another function.


Book Inventory Summary Report:-

Title, Author, Price
StarWars EP1, G.Lucas, $49.59
Harry Potter, Rowling, $45.98
The Matrix, Mr. Smith, $53.98

Press 'y' to make a copy of this result into a file or 'n' to return to the main menu.. I understand the "press any key to continue" would go something like


read -sn 1 -p "Press any key to continue.." But i try many different ways of getting the "press a particular key" function, and none of them works.

Fedora :: Download Correctly Kernel Source To Enable Driver Make Operation To Proceed?

Dec 20, 2010

I have done a new install of Fedora 14 but the RTL8191 wirless card is not being recognised. Realtek have provided the driver source but the make operation is failing because (I think) Fedora 14 isn't provided with the kernel source to enable it to complete successfully.

Basically (in easy to understand steps): how do I download correctly the Kernel source to enable the driver make operation to proceed?

Ubuntu :: Make PS1 Changes Permanent?

May 19, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and I've been looking to customize what's given as my command prompt, and I learned how to do this by entering PS1="desired text" which is remarkably straight forward.

I'm a little stuck on how to make this permanent though. If you just type in that command, then when you close that terminal session and open a new one, it resets to the old/default prompt. I read the tutorial at:


and it referred to editing the .bashrc file in ubuntu. I found the bash.bashrc file in /etc/ and edited the line that said PS1=, however it didn't change my command prompt. I searched for other files relating to bash and in clear instances that PS1= was given, I changed it to see if the command prompt would change. This has been to no avail so far though.

Does anyone know which file needs to be edited/what needs to be done in order to make a customization of the command prompt permanent?

Ubuntu :: Make The Synclient Options Permanent?

Jan 4, 2011

Since the 10.10 upgrade my mouse clicks on my laptop have been behaving rather oddly. Sometimes it randomly does a middle click when i'm doing a left click, which is really annoying because it means that sometimes tabs close or my text gets random bits of text appearing in it. I've found that running this command "synclient tapbutton2=2 tapbutton3=0 rtcornerbutton=0 rbcornerbutton=0 clickfinger3=0" fixes it, but only temporarily, sometimes it only lasts like 10 minutes or so, other times it lasts till reboot. So, is there anyway to make these changes permanent?

Fedora :: Persistent DNS Cache - Make It Permanent?

Mar 10, 2010

i has setup a persistent DNS cache to improve my web-browsing. it works wonders and with my ICC built firefox my web-browsing is laser-fast, pretty much like using internet explorer in windows! however, everytime i reboot, my modifications to /etc/resolv.conf have been replaced... 1st. the file must contain:

# Generated by NetworkManager (obviously modified by this)
nameserver <----this is lost on reboot, and is needed to make it all work

i have tried to add this to - System/administration/network, but it doesn't seem to fix the problem. 2nd. my next problem is that when fedora 12 starts up,i need it to start "dnsmasq".i have tried to add it as a startup application, but it doesn't start automatically.so i end up having to start it manually everytime:

sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq start

it is annoying, but so far i just deal with it, because my browsing is that much faster! i am planning to post a tutorial for those interested in faster web-browsing in linux, but until i can make the changes perminent there isn't much point.

PS: i have tried to write a shell script to do this and every which way i try it fails

General :: Make A Permanent Install Of Puppy Onto The HD?

May 2, 2011

I have just booted to Puppy (for the first time in my life) on a 6 y/o amd type with a 40Gb HD, Ram: 512.I would like to make a permanent install of puppy onto the HD, I have read various pieces on how to install, defraging, repartitioning, differing file systems. However, i am a bit lost. The computer will be used for e-mail, web browsing, and watching the odd film (films installed on the drive) - I am unsure as to the best combination of file types and partition in order to keep puppy happy and keep some compatibility with the world outside of linux.

For instance, could i have a small partition with the puppy install and setting, and the rest on a format that would be compatible with windows/mac/linux? If so, how do I do this, pls bare in mind that my windows install is running but incomplete. I have the feeling this will be a really simple problem for someone to help me with,

Ubuntu Installation :: Wanting To Make More Permanent Switch Via External HD?

Jun 10, 2010

The idea is that I got to grips with Linux a couple of times in the past; most recently in a Radio Astronomy class (where we had to use openSUSE and terminals 24/7). I loved it so much that I fired up Wubi on my laptop and I am having a play.

Then I loved it even more.

So here's the plan:

Find Windows (Vista) CD *sigh*
Get 500 GB external Hard Drive
Backup files to HD (60 GB max)
Reformat Laptop & Reinstall Windows

To my understanding, this gives me a blank slate with a lot of room to play with because of the external HD. If this is not possible/too risky etc. then what are the best alternatives?

The plan is to make my primary OS Ubuntu. The way I figured, to keep things simple, is to keep the laptop's HD with Windows as 'normal'. I would thus install Ubuntu to the external HD, and put my files etc. on that.

Now, is that possible for a clean installation? Ideally, it would be fantastic if the boot can be configured so it would boot Ubuntu if the HD is connected, and Windows if not.

Fedora :: Make Group Change On Device Permanent?

Dec 31, 2009

I would like to make group changes on serial ports permanent. I can become root and use chgrp:

chgrp uucp /dev/ttyaa00

but it only lasts until reboot. I think I need to add this line to a startup file but not sure where. I want this to work in run level 3 and 5 (at least). I have a digi portserver and their realport software. The ports are /dev/ttyaa00 through /dev/ttyaa07 and are in group root on startup. I want them in uucp so any user in uucp can use them. This is for F10.

Fedora :: How To Make Permission Change For Device Permanent

Jun 23, 2010

I recently compile Kernel 2.6.34 (to fix the AMD PowerNow issue with 1055T processor, and it worked!) However, the device
starts up at boot as Read-Only.

Google Chrome requires this device to be user-writable, or it won't start up. Presumably, the stock kernels (and all that are updated) have it set to User-Write. I have not noticed any other ill effects with the permission being read-only. If I do:
sudo chmod a+w /dev/shm
Everything will work from there, but each time I reboot, I have to do that. How do I make that permission-change permanent?

OpenSUSE Network :: Make The Iptables Rules Permanent?

Apr 23, 2010

I set up a squid transparent proxy and I have a problem with an iptable rules. I have a rule to redirect all request to port 80 to go on port 3128. To do so, I'm using this iptables command :


iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 3128

This command is working like a charm. The only problem is, for some unknown reasons, this rule will be dropped at some point. I did not manage to identify what is causing this to happen. It occurs during night, but I have nothing about that in my log files. messages / firewall / ...) The only way I managed to reproduce this 'dropping' is this one: I type the command like as root. The command is effective and working fine. I open yast, I go to the firewall module, the I do a simple "save changes and restart firewall" (without changing anything). As soon as this process is finished, the iptables rule is gone.

-How can I make this rule permanent ?

-Is there a place where I can launch a script executing this rule, after the yast firewall module is 'touched' or something ?

Fedora :: Making The System Changes Permanent?

Jan 24, 2011

I have recently used PowerTop to get information about what settings I could tweak to make my laptop more power efficient. However, my problem is that all such changes seem to dissapear as soon as I reboot my machine. For example, if I run:

echo 1500 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_writeback_centisecs

This value will have been rewritten to 500 when I reboot. Is there any way to change this, and make sure that any and all changes I do to my system remain permanent until I change them to something else? This question is of course not limited to Powertop, I would also like changes I do via for example cpufreq to be permanent as well.
