NAME

ctys-uc-X11 - Use-Cases for X11 Interface


USE-CASES

Xterm with Interactive bash

This opens a Xterm window with an interactive bash. Various consoles could be used, which are actually X-terminals such as Xterm ore gnome-terminal.

Due to the different usage of hyphens for the variuos graphical user interfaces the duboptions 'SH' and 'DH' - 'single hyphen' and 'double hyphen' were introduced. The "SH" suboption is here mandatory for the usage of Xterm, because the Xterm emulation requires a single-hyphen for it's options, default is "DH".

The default behaviour concerning the terminal emulation is to scan for a gnome-terminal first and prefer it if found, else an xterm emulation will be started by default.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11 lab00
  


The same by call CONSOLE:XTERM alias.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,console:xterm lab00
  


The same by call args.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,cmd:xterm,sh lab00
  


The same by call args with explicit shell.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,cmd:xterm,c:bash%-i,sh lab00
  


Gnome-Terminal with Interactive bash

This opens a Gnome-Terminal window with an interactive bash. The "DH" suboption is here mandatory but the default. This is required because the gnome-terminal emulation requires a double-hyphen for it's options.

The the default behaviour is to open a gnome-terminal when detected.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11 lab00
  


The same by call CONSOLE:GTERM alias.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,console:gterm lab00
  


The same as the default behaviour.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,dh lab00
  


The same as the default behaviour.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,cmd:gnome-terminal,c:bash%-i,dh lab00
  


Emacs Session in shell-mode

Starts an remote Emacs in

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,cmd:emacs%-f%shell,s:bash%-i lab00
  


The same by call CONSOLE:EMACS alias.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,console:emacs lab00
  


Emacs Session with cd

Starts an remote Emacs:

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx1,console:emacs,cd:/var/tmp app1
  


The result is:

Emacs-Console with 'cd /var/tmp'


Single XClock

This starts an Xclock with an altered options keyword for windows title, additionaly the "SH" key is required for using single-hyphens.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,cmd:xclock,titlekey:name,sh lab00
  


Similar, but not the same. This starts an Xclock with NOTITLE, which suppresses the setting of the title for a window by the LABEL string. Thus this window is no longer recognized by LIST, or just with limits.

  
  ctys -t x11 -a create=l:tstx11,cmd:xclock,notitle lab00
