Odd request, how to view images in Terminal (as ASCII, or etc.)?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 14, 2008
This might seem like a fairly odd request so I'm not sure whether anybody knows the answer to it, but I had this little silly idea whether I could display rough images I have in a terminal or in the TTY[1-6] (I forgot what they're called, the big full-screen terminals that appear when you push <CTRL>+<ALT>+[1-6])?
I'm thinking about both being able to look at pictures in a web browser (the only one I know is w3m which I only figured out yesterday and the only thing I know how to do is w3m <url> so that is really basic), and being able to look at something like .jpg or .png images, in a kind of ASCII like manner. I mean the terminal can display colour (like when you use the top command and then push z) so is it really so crazy to be able to display some (albeit extremely raw) graphics?
Please respond, because this sounds like a wonderfully interesting feature (especially to show off to your friends)- if it exists

How to start gnomediskutility from a terminal (as root)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 8, 2010
I have a real newbie question. I want to edit my disk partition table. Mount some drives etc. I like gui tools and gnome's disk utility seems to be able to do everything I want to. My problem: When I want to create a new filesystem on an empty space, I'm not allowed to. I guess I need root access, but I can't login as root to my gnome session and I know no way to start the disk utility from a terminal where I'm the root user, so my question is: How do I do this?

How to get bash as default in terminal
- date: October 12, 2011
I installed NCBI-blast in my ubuntu. To have a smooth working of this program, I added a environmental variable and a .bashrc file (saved at home folder) with the following content
I also added contents to another .ncbirc file
I restarted the system and typed the command pwd in the terminal and it showed the following
Command 'whoami' is available in '/usr/bin/whoami'
The command could not be located because '/usr/bin' is not included in the PATH environment variable.
whoami: command not found
So I typed the command echo $PATH. It showed the following
:~$ echo $PATH
I am happy the BLAST Program is working but I also need bash shell to do other operations. Can any body suggest me to have both previous default PATH & also with the BLAST env variable
I hope the above message is clear

odd request: Webcam as desktop background?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 4, 2008
Hey, I've got a shiny new EeePC with a 1.3 MP camera built in. Drivers worked fine after downloading and compiling the newest uvcvideo modules; that's not the problem.
I would like to set it up so that the camera feed is the desktop "wallpaper". Is there any way to do this? Right now I'm using Gnome, but I would readily switch desktop environments if it let me do this.
