"declare -x" messages in terminal

Postby Eysteinn » Sun Nov 06, 2011 7:35 am

I am a total beginner to linux.
When I open the terminal, after the fortune message appears, I get lines like these in the terminal:

Code: Select all

declare -x DISPLAY=":0.0"
declare -x GDMSESSION="gnome"
declare -x GDM_KEYBOARD_LAYOUT="no"
declare -x GDM_LANG="en_GB"
declare -x GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID="this-is-deprecated"
declare -x GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL="/tmp/keyring-F8a31t"
declare -x GNOME_KEYRING_PID="1608"

I have installed two applications outside of the software manager: Matlab R2011a and Spotify.

Matlab was installed using this recipe:

Spotify was installed using this recipe:

Spotify for Linux

This is a preview build of Spotify for Linux. As a preview release this version is still unsupported, but we're running it ourselves and will try to make sure it keeps pace with its Mac and Windows siblings, there are issues regarding decoding of local music on the Linux platform so we haven't included support for local files in this version. As we haven’t found a reliable way to display ads yet, this version is only available to Spotify Premium and Unlimited subscribers.

So how do you get it? We've packaged it for Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 10.04 package and for Fedora 13, i386 and x86_64.

# 1. Add this line to your list of repositories by
# editing your /etc/apt/sources.list

Code: Select all

deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free

# 2. If you want to verify the downloaded packages,
# you will need to add our public key

Code: Select all

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 4E9CFF4E

# 3. Run apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

# 4. Install spotify!

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install spotify-client-qt

The reason could also be because I had to play around in on of the tty's to get the computer to reboot, after a problem with the CompizConfig Settings Manager. It froze and all I saw was the background image.

Thank you in advance!
