Anotha quest from the Terminal Realm..

Postby afriza78 on Sun Feb 08, 2009 9:54 pm

I think I'm in love with with the terminal mode, and gonna stick with it (that, and the fact that Linux doesn't recognize my onboard VGA.. :lol: )

Another questions has arrived (global invitations for all, and a special one for Garda)
1) How can I play my MP3 files in the terminal mode?
2) How do I print and perform a printer setup?
3) How to set an IP address for my network adapter?

Thanks 4 the attentions.

PS: I have GCC now, it's soooo kewl!

You can play mp3's in terminal with a 'mpg123", there's probably others too

I only use console/terminal to perform some troubleshooting and administrative tasks, not to do everything. Therefore, I can't answer the first two questions. If I were you, I would simply take the files on a removable media (USB flashdrive. for example) and print them from another computer with which I have a GUI environment.

Your IP address is specified in /etc/network/interfaces, which can be opened and edited using any text editor. Simply type man infterfaces to get an idea of what to put in there. Or you can try executing this code:
Code: Select all
sudo ifconfig adapter ip.address

Example:
Code: Select all
sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1

To get a list of all available adapters, enter:
Code: Select all
ifconfig -a

Type man ifconfig for more information.

Thankyou brada.. o yea, I just bought a graphic card and reinstall my Linux and it's working! the Xwindow is working fine!
But I'm already in love with the Terminal, so I turn off the option to start the X interface at bootup..

Soo.. you can still expect more questions from the terminal realm from me.. :D
