About commands in terminal for Pidgin
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 15, 2009
I was unable to login to yahoo using Pidgin so searched and found I need to upgrade to 2.5.7 On the homepage 2.5.8 is available with following instructions:
To setup the PPA, copy-and-paste these commands into a terminal:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com \ 67265eb522bdd6b1c69e66ed7fb8bee0a1f196a8
echo deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pidgin-developers/ppa/ubuntu \ `lsb_release --short --codename` main | \
sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pidgin-ppa.list
Now, these seem to be two seperate commands, I am not sure. please tell me If I am supposed to copy paste entire thing at once or first one first and second one after its completed?
Also it further says:
The PPA will need to be re-setup only after upgrading Ubuntu.
I didnt understand this either.
Can someone please help?
And I must mention that before this I did "complete removal" of Pidgin from Synaptic and downloaded

link to terminal commands???

Total noob in ubuntu. A friend well versed in terminal (but not in gnome/gui) came over and helped me install an additional HD. We (he) moved my home folder onto the new drive - messed up a number of things as a result - but one was lost bookmarks. I'd found and bookmarked an excellent page here with a list of the terminal commands and what they mean/do but for the life of me I cant find it. It was in a long list of "how-tos". Help me find the link please.
run multiple commands in Ubuntu server terminal
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 1, 2012
I am using Ubuntu server for running avserver (ffmpeg) and stream after booting. But I can't figure out how to make both run automatically (either boot time or later).
command "avserver" needs to run first, and then avconv -f .........
I tried with bash scripts. Having both at the same scripts but avserver won't return the command line so avconv will be never executed (I used $(....);$(....). I tried with screens:
"screen -dmS AVserver avserver" and
"screen -dmS AVconv avconv -f alsa-i................" and not luck
Then I tried them in different scripts at boot time with
"sudo update-rc.d avserver defaults"
"sudo update-rc.d bash './myscript.sh' defaults"
and setting them with different start/stops such as
"sudo update-rc.d avserver start 20 2 3 4 5 . stop 80 0 1 6."
"sudo update-rc.d bash 'myscript.sh' start 30 2 3 4 5 . stop 70 0 1 6."
but not luck...
Can anyone give me more ideas? I am running out (I am new to t
Ubuntu (terminal) commands
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 2, 2011
I installed Ubuntu few days ago and works very good. "Ubuntu Software Center" works good for installing but not every application is in there, so some of them need to be installed manually.
When I need to install manually, I go to App's web site and see what commands to run (in terminal), but it confuses me because I don't even know what all those commands are for, all I know is it's about to install needed app, so I'm asking you, what those "sudo", "apt", "get", "add", "install update" "./configure" etc. do. (and if there are more usefull cmds, tell me), I just like having control on what's my PC is doing, that's why I switched from Windows to Linux. Atm, I would like if there is some "Ubuntu installer" like the "Windows installer", but maybe manually installing (and other stuff in terminal) could be even more fun if I know what commands that I running actually do.
Save frequently used terminal commands
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 3, 2009
This may be a dumb question, but I am wondering if there is a way to save the terminal commands I use frequently?
To clarify, when I go into a terminal, I can scroll through all the commands I have used (as far as I can tell) to find the relevant one I need (ex. sudo blah-blah). Is there a way to save this list, possibly in a text file, as a backup? That way, if I ever really bork the box, I can simply bring up the text file and find the commands I need, instead of having to search on the forum for them.
Does that make any sense?
