Post date: April 14, 2009, 06:04 Category: Desktop Views: 3389 Comments

It can also be used for copying files, as an alternative to sftp/scp, thus avoiding password prompts when X11 forwarding has already been setup. xclip reads from Standard Input or from one or more files and copy it to the X11 clipboard making it available to the X applications. xclip can also print the content of the current X clipboard onto the standard output or to a file.

Keyboard shortcuts: Faster than the speed of mouse

Post date: November 26, 2005, 00:11 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 2677 Comments
Tutorial quote: My computer set-up is suboptimal. My desk is too high for me to type on comfortably. My workaround? I type with my keyboard on my lap. That puts the keyboard at just the right height and is kinder to my wrists. My mouse, however, has to sit on my desk. Using my mouse involves moving my hand a foot in each direction.

While this action might conceivably bulk up my arm muscles, I would rather not do my arm exercises while at my computer. Using the mouse is time consuming, distracting, and, most importantly, less ergonomic. While your computer may be better situated than mine, chances are you, too, would work faster if you did not have to use your mouse.

To minimize my mouse use, I learned many of the keyboard bindings for various applications. Many applications use similar bindings, making them even easier to remember.

I have compiled a list of keyboard bindings here for some of the more prevalent applications. Feel free to print them out and keep them next to your computer. It may take you a little time to remember them, but once you do, you will wonder how you ever did without.

sshpass - Non-interactive ssh password authentication

Post date: May 4, 2008, 22:05 Category: Security Views: 5728 Comments
Tutorial quote: SSH’s (secure shell) most common authentication mode is called “interactive keyboard password authentication”, so called both because it is typically done via keyboard, and because openssh takes active measures to make sure that the password is, indeed, typed interactively by the keyboard.

Sometimes, however, it is necessary to fool ssh into accepting an interactive password non-interactively. This is where sshpass comes in.

Setup the SSH server to use keys for authentication

Post date: November 16, 2005, 20:11 Category: Network Views: 3162 Comments
Tutorial quote: The user creates a keypair, which consists of a private key, that can be protected with a passphrase, and a public key. The public key is transfered to the server and the private key is kept in our workstation. We assume that the user has accounts in both the server machine and his workstation. Everytime he tries to connect to the server, the keys are validated and the user is granted access.
