how do I get a Linux command line from the Desktop GUI
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 3, 2013
Brand New to Ubuntu and Linux
I need to install a .tar for a program called Open SRF. The installation instructions state that I need to issue commands as the "root user" to install prerequisites using the Makefile.install prerequisite installer.
the commands are
apt-get install make
make -f src/extras/makefile.install <ubuntu-precise>
How do I get from the GUI to a command line so that I can go from the "user" environment to the "root" so that I can type these commands in and be able to install the OpenSRF tarball?
In brief: I think I need to have a Linux command line, but am not sure where to get one fired up from the Ubuntu desktop GUI. Is this a "command Line install", Cli - I think this is related to a command called 'sudotaskel"
How can I do a yum install in a linux command line from a jar file?
- date: July 8, 2013
I want to be able to execute a jar file in a linux terminal that will run a series of commands to yum install several programs on a server. The goal is to automate some of the install processes because we do so many installs for testing. I have the following code:
public class test
public static void main(String args)
Runtime rt = Runtime.getRuntime();
cmd = "/bin/sh -c yum install -y rpm-build";
When I run it, nothing happens. If I just run "yum install -y rpm-build" it works fine, but not if I run the jar to do it. What am I doing wrong?
Error stream from code/comment below:
labStats]# java test
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Usage: yum [options] COMMAND
List of Commands:
check Check for problems in the rpmdb
check-update Check for available package updates
clean Remove cached data
deplist List a package's dependencies

How to Get a Command Line without Using Launcher?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 17, 2013
I've managed to bork my system to the extent that I have no launcher bar and no system bar (or whatever the bar at the top of the screen is called) in Unity. I think the first step to recovering might be to open up a command-line shell from the Unity desktop so I can re-install a few things. But how can I open a command-line window when there is no launcher bar?
Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

How do you kill command line processes the right way?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2010
Every time I run a never ending task from the commandline, such as top or ping, I always exit by pressing "ctrl+z". However, it seems that only moves the process to the background so that I can continue using the command line.
What is the proper way to kill long lasting processes?
On a side note, now that I installed killall it doesn't seem to close the ping or top processes I started. Each time I start top I still see them.
[SOLVED] how to get linux command out outs in to a python script
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 27, 2008
When I write scripts in python I use os.system() for executing linux commands . My doubt is, is there any method to get the output of the command in side the python script. What I usually do is redirect the out of the linux command in to a file and then read that file in side python script. Can any one suggest any other good method ?
