I'm trying to send messages with either wall or write. To test this, I opened two gnome-terminal windows. Then entered the following in one window:
me@host>>wall message to everyone <ctrl> + d
When I finished the message I sent an
interrupt signal EOF character with (ctrl-d). Instead of sending the message, the terminal beeped at me as if I entered invalid input. I get similar behavior with write. Can someone help me with what is wrong?
Edit: Here is the permissions info:
me@host>>ls -l $(type -p wall) -rwxr-sr-x 1 root tty 27368 May 26 18:31 /usr/bin/wall
