Putty / SSH: How do I get my command line back? [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 4, 2012
This is a very noob question but I am new to Putty and SSH.
When I submit an odd/wrong command or sometimes when I am using Vi, something strange happens and I cannot get the prompt back; it just looks like this:
How do I get back to the command line from there?
How get monitor to native resolution on Ubuntu 11.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 17, 2011
Hi Ubuntu experts,
I am new to Ubuntu (11.04, 64 bit) and have been surfing and reading, but haven't quite figured out how to get my hp w2207 monitor to display in native mode, which is 1680x1050, 60Hz. I tried System Settings/Hardware/Monitors but the highest resolution there is 1024x768. I tried the 'Detect monitors' button, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I am running on an Intel D525 Atom Mboard and i have updated Ubuntu to latest updates. From what I have read, the D525 uses Intel's GMA 3150 chip and the drivers for that chip are automatically included in the standard Ubuntu release, so that's not my problem (I think). Somehow the monitor is not being detected, apparently. On this forum I saw a recommendation to edit a file 'xorg.conf' and to insert a Monitor section etc. But I have not been able to find 'xorg.conf' in /etc/X11, nor in /usr/whatever. So my question is, should I make an 'xorg.conf' and put it in /etc/X11, or is it possible there is already one somewh
How get ubuntu 10.4 to see Google Nexus 4 phone.

((Forward: I have primitive command line skills. If you have a solution that can only be performed via command line, please, please, try to give as much step by step if possible. Sincerely grateful.))
I have a laptop running ubuntu 10.4,, no higher version will run on it, I've tried several times so that's not an option. I have a Google Nexus 4 running Jelly Bean.
When I plug the two together via USB, I go into, 'computer', there is no icon for the phone. I want to transfer songs from the laptop over to the phone via USB.
Is it possible to resolve this?
SSH: How to generate public key from private key?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 29, 2008
According to this thread, I should be able to generate a public key to match a private key I already have:
If you didn't notice, it generated another public key.This is the same key as is on your computer, as you can always generate your public key from your private key (but not the other way around).
The author used something called puttygen.exe, which I assume is a windows program. How would I do in Ubuntu what he did?
File/directory transport over ssh how?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 16, 2009
Got myself a Debian box (an NSLU2...) running a ssh server and a 160 GB disk w. data i'd like to access when i'm away from home.
Can ssh into the box from another (Debian) box. Can also scp single named files from the shell. Nice, but i'd like to do better than that. Accessing the server from e.g. one of the window-panes in mc or Krusader - or the Windows(TM) TotalCommander(R) - would be desirable.
I'd like to do this securely - meaning via the installed ssh. Several people have talked about 'tunneling' over ssh, and this sounds like a viable solution, but i'm not sure how to proceed. Read the ssh manpage, but that only made me confused on a higher level
Attaching this remote host via mount or creating a driveletter on the occasional windows-box would be perfect. I've got a vague idea that it's possible via mount/fstab, but cannot figure out how. Regarding windows i'm all blank.
rsync ssh how to execute shell commands on server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2009
I'm relatively new to Linux and I'm trying to set up a script to backup machine A files to machine B. I have my ssh key all set up and can rsync just fine to copy files over, but I want to be able to run some additional commands on the remote host (the machine I'm connecting to) BEFORE actually copying files over. I am new to shell scripting. Here is my script so far:
[SOLVED] encrypted remote backups over ssh?? how?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 22, 2009
My basic need is to archive and encrypt files and store them on a remote server on my local network. Currently I can use tar and pipe the output over ssh to the remote server, but then I have to encrypt it on the other end. I can use tar and pipe the output to gpg and get an encrypted archive, but then I have to move it. is there a way to do all of this in one step? i.e.... tar file | gpg encrypt | transfer via ssh ?
that way I can have it done automatically.
SSH RSA key fingerprint with network
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 25, 2006
I have a network with several clients running sshd. I have different port pointing to each client to port 22. I was just wondering if there is any way to cope with the hazzle of rsa key fingerprint in this situation. Whenever I from the outside ssh to a different machine within the network I have to manually remove ~/.ssh/known_hosts before sshing to the client behind the firewall.

URGENT: Can someone please explain SSH, how to use it, and it's point?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 17, 2009
I was working on my box with my jailbroken iPod touch sitting beside me (the fact that it's jailbroken isn't very important. only know that by doing so I have access to a terminal on my iPod) and I was messing around.
I came across SSH... and (I think) I connected to my iPod through my computer. Why would someone want to do something like this and what would be the purpose?
