How to use screen as a nonroot user?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 2, 2007
I am setting up Enemy-Territory on a remote centos 4.5 linux server.
I am new to linux. So far, I have manage to get it running though by running as root. My Enemy-Territory setup guide wanted me to use screen as a non-root user.
However, I have the below message while I logged in as a non-root user.
"Cannot make directory '/tmp/uscreens': Permission denied"
I can start "screen" while I logged in as root though.
I seek your kind advise.
Possible? How to connect a Mac to a Linux to use Internet?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 23, 2012
Here is my situation, I'm at a place "in space and time", where there is only dialup. :/
The Linux box is using a modem via dialup to connect to the Internet. It is working, the ppp0 interface is up, hence I am able posting this.
I have a Mac with no modem, but it has a network card and wifi card, but there is no wifi in this area. Both the Mac and the Linux seem to have a socket on the back for an ethernet(?) cable.
How can I connect the Mac to the Linux box, so that the Mac can use the net too using the Linux's dialup connection?

How do I turn off the Yellow Dog Linux 6.2 screen saver?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 8, 2010
Right after a fresh install I went into terminal b4 logging into gnome and after about 10 minutes the screen goes black. I can wiggle the mouse or touch the keyboard and it goes away. I play games with a controller and since I'm not touching the mouse or keyboard this happens every 10 minutes or so. I went into gnome and put screen saver to 2 hours and not to happen when idle but this didn't make it stop. I reinstalled again and it still happens. Any help please....
Java in full screen on Linux how to cover task bar?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: November 9, 2012
I read some related articles, and Googled a lot.. and I have a problem to run Java application in full screen mode on "openSUSE 11.4 (x86_64)". I am using Java 1.6.0_26-b03.
I have try to run two examples of full screen application:
Example from Oracle site: Display Mode Test.
JDarkRoom.jar (simple text editor) downloaded from Codealchemists.
In both cases I have a Linux Task bar visible over the application. It must be something with system settings/configuration?...

Linux: How to kill programs that use port 1935?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: December 27, 2013
I have a red5 server (JAVA) running on my Linux server.
Sometimes, the server shuts down. When I try to restart it I got an error:
"Binding error, this port is alerady in use".
So I try to kill the server with killall -9 java
and try to restart the server: same error.
I have to wait for a while (about 2-3 minutes) and restart it again: that works.
I just need to know why when I kill the process I still have to wait 2-3 minutes before port 1935 is free and I can run the server again.
Is there a way to kill this process immediately and free the port ?
Linux: how to “zoom” into a screen area à la Mac OS X?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: April 27, 2011
It seems to me on Mac OS X it is possible to "zoom" (like a photocamera does) into a region of the screen.
It is handy for example to put at full monitor size a video which would otherwise be limited to be just into a small window (ie. embedded in a web page and not watchable standalone.), obviously losing some quality due to the "zoom".
Do you know of any tool or way to do the same thing on a Linux desktop (with Gnome as desktop manager if it is desktop manager dependent).
How come I can't use Screen on a different computer?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 23, 2009
When I use putty, login and type "screen", it works.
When I use a DIFFERENT computer--a linux based system. I SSH into it through my local machine.
Then, I type "screen" , and it displays this error?:
'cannot open your terminal '/dev/pts/0' -please check
