1. Installing GNOME-Desktop: Install GNOME Desktop Environment on here. # yum -y groups install "GNOME Desktop" Input a command like below after finishing installation: # startx GNOME Desktop Environment will start. For first booting, initial setup runs and you have to configure it for first time. Select System language first. Select your ...
A nice alternative is SmartGit. It has some very similar features to SourceTree and has built in 3-column conflict resolution, visual logs, pulling, pushing, merging, syncing, tagging and all things git :)
What Cinnamon version do you use? As far as I know, their latest version can do this seamlessly. In my Linux Mint 14 I can just use CtrlAltUp to show all workspaces, and then click + button on the right edge of the screen to add new workspace. You may want to check cinnamon 1.6 release page. Clem already explained how to do this over there.
The hardware power button triggers an ACPI event that acpid (the ACPI daemon) notices and reacts to; in this case by shutting down the system, although you could have it do whatever you want. The ACPI daemon runs as root, so it has permission to shutdown the system. Desktop environments (e.g. gdm for Gnome) typically run as root as well, so I suspect they ...
Tried Sqliteman? Look for sqliteman in your package manager. It is stable, so should be broadly available.
Shnsplit can read a cue file directly, which also means it can access the other data from the cue file (not just the breakpoints) and generate nicer filenames than 'split-*.flac': shnsplit -f file.cue -t %n-%t -o flac file.flac Granted, this makes it more difficult to use cuetag.sh if the original flac file is in the same directory.
There are a number of tools that are usable: meld kompare -- diff file viewer kdiff3 -- file difference viewer Diffuse -- file difference viewer Do you have two files and want to view their differences? Use a "file difference viewer". Do you have a diff file and want to look at it in an easy-to-read display? Use a "diff file viewer".
There's a dedicated tool to do this, avimerge: avimerge -o cd.avi -i cd1.avi cd2.avi
You can use X11 forwarding over SSH; make sure the option X11Forwarding yes is enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config, and either enable X11 forwarding by hand with ssh -X remoteserver or add a line saying ForwardX11 yes to the relevant host entry in ~/.ssh/config Of course, that requires a working X display at the local end, so if you're using Windows ...
You are looking for ncurses.
Did you have a look at some other "lighterweight" ;-) window managers? I'm completly happy with i3 for example: http://i3wm.org/ It's just a tiling windowmanger with dmenu for launching applications. No desktop, no other special features and the binary is just some KBs. There are a lot others in this range: evilwm - http://www.6809.org.uk/evilwm/ dwm - ...
Debian uses tasksel for installing software for a specific system. The command gives you some information: > tasksel --list-tasks i desktop Graphical desktop environment u web-server Web server u print-server Print server u dns-server DNS server u file-server File server u mail-server Mail server u database-server SQL database u ...
Accessing the X server requires two things: The $DISPLAY variable pointing to the correct display (usually :0) Proper authentication information The authentication information can be explicitly specified via $XAUTHORITY, and defaults to ~/.Xauthority otherwise. If $DISPLAY and $XAUTHORITY is set for your user, sudo will set them for the new shell, too, ...
The Wikipedia page on Comparison of X Window Managers sorts the various Window Managers into four categories: Heavyweight, Middleweight, Lightweight, and minimal. You'd probably be interested in those in the minimal category. Right now, those include Matchbox, sithWM, evilwm, dwm, WMFS, wmii, and scrotwm. (i3 gets put into Lightweight; Xfwm (used by ...
I use pdftk mainly. But here are some others to consider: pdfsam (PDF Split and Merge): "pdfsam is an open source tool (GPL license) designed to handle pdf files" PDFJam "A small collection of shell scripts which provide a simple interface to much of the functionality of the excellent pdfpages PDF file package (by Andreas Matthias) for pdfLaTeX." (You can ...
I only know a CLI way. You will need cuetools and shntool. cuebreakpoints file.cue | shnsplit -o flac file.flac cuetag.sh file.cue "split-*".flac
I don't know about Arch and Debian, but oftentimes those GUIs are made with dialog(1), which takes a bunch of command-line arguments and then renders a dialog with ncurses. For examples, the Linux kernel menuconfig looks like this: An example dialog usage is: $ dialog --title "Hello" --infobox "Hello there Unix and Linux Stack Exchange" 20 100 Which ...
The GIT project maintains a page with all the GUIs available for all platforms both free and commercial. I'd list them all here but it's a pretty extensive list with screenshots and descriptions. GUI Clients GIT also comes, typically with 2 GUIs. You can run them as follows: $ git gui &...
According to the xinit man page that I read, xinit (and thereby startx) looks in its command line parameters for a client program to run. If it doesn't find one, it runs ~/.xinitrc instead. So you should be able to write startx path/to/my_alternate_xinitrc and it will do what you want. You will need to provide a path, though, and not just a filename. ...
Usually, you can use SIGHUP to "friendly" close an application (with or without graphical interface). kill -HUP <application_pid> EDITED: added some other info The way SIGHUP is handled is application dependent so, as Dave noted, it can happen that this signal is masked or handled. However quite all interactive applications exit gracefully with a ...
I've been using sqlitebrowser, it is a really good options. Though probably not the only one! On Ubuntu, it is available in the default package repositores.
GitEye is pretty good stuff. Also, free (as in beer).
I know two programs for manipulating PDFs under Linux: PDEedit "Pdf Editor is primary created for simple editation and manipulation with objects of documents in PDF format and storing them as new version of document. Editation and manipulation with objets is by graphical and by commandline interface too. For simple use command line is using script language, ...
You can use xdotool, a versatile X window automation tool. focused_window_id=$(xdotool getwindowfocus) active_window_id=$(xdotool getactivewindow) active_window_pid=$(xdotool getwindowpid "$active_window_id") (I don't know what the difference between focused and active is.) (I thought wmctrl could do this, but apparently not.)
Despite the fact that X.org is 20+ years old, what is it exactly that you need from a windows server that it doesn't provide? You have OpenGL support, anti-aliased fonts, double buffering, spiffy translucent composite windows, hardware-accelerated video playback. You can even play some DirectX games on it with wine if you're into that. What makes an X11 ...
Michael's answer correctly discusses system function when using the hardware power switch, but most desktop environments actually use dbus for this purpose rather than doing it themselves. For example, GNOME uses dbus's org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.SystemPowerManagement.Shutdown when the shutdown button is clicked. When this is sent, dbus does some checks to ...
Dolphin looks like what you are looking for: But the terminal is a slave of its directory navigation (if you change the directory in the GUI, it changes in the terminal, but not the other way around). To change the application directory when you change the current directory in the terminal, you can make your shell send a message to Dolphin to update its ...
There are several other implementations of X11, but none of them have all the features & driver support that X.org has. There are also some framebuffer-based solutions like DirectFB and whatever Android uses. And recently work has been ongoing on Project Wayland, which maybe one day might (partially) replace X11.
There's xpra (or a newer fork), a slightly more recent tool than xmove.
It is as simple as this: xdotool getactivewindow getwindowname Good luck hope it works for you!
