Help Connecting NX

06-05-2009, 15:45
I'm setting up VSFTPD but i dont have access to file system/home/ftp i am not able to save files that i am downloading in there.
Will that folder be the main partition just like the main home folder that has the examples and desktop directories?

If so, how would i go about getting access to the home/ftp?

or how would i change the config file in vsftp to point to another dir like the main home folder (which i can access)

prefix the command with "sudo".

Its all installed now and working well.

I am trying to start a JD file but its saying i need to be root.
Is there no other way around it while still being logged in as admin?

06-05-2009, 11:30
I'm sure you can. I've never installed VNC myself, but I assume you'll need root access (or in ubuntu terms, admin access) to do so, which you'll have.

Can i not install VNC also?

06-05-2009, 11:23
That means all the disk space is divided by the new partition setup, it's normal.

06-05-2009, 11:09
Ok i'm reinstalling now it said i had used all the space up, will that just be overwritten with the new install?

I don't have the login info for the manager atm

06-05-2009, 10:52
Log into the Manager, click on your server and then Services > Reinstallations (top row of icons). Ubuntu Desktop will be under Linux > Ready to go.

I have no data thats important on there.

How would i go about a reinstall, at least then it may fix the NX Problem

Did you delete the /tmp directory?

Perhaps you should consider backing-up your data via ssh and reinstall.

mktemp: cannot create temp file /tmp/nxserver_tmp.yaBV18107: No such file or directory
/usr/bin/nxserver: line 217: $TMPFILE: ambiguous redirect
I guess the nx config has been deleted now?

06-05-2009, 10:33
ls: cannot access /tmp: No such file or directory

06-05-2009, 10:28
Prolly not worth it.

search for larger disposable files of more than a few k

"ls -lh /tmp" to see the sizes of files listed in for instance of /tmp
You may know other directories you can delete stuff from, stuff you don't need in /home for instance.

Basicaly, this is houskeeping stuff for the admin.

cpu_stats     hsperfdata_root  orbit-root      Tracker-root.17049

Are they safe to delete?

ls /tmp, see what you're happy to dispose of, then "rm -rf /tmp/what/ya-don't-need"

/tmp is the temporary directory btw.

06-05-2009, 10:02
how do i rm the /temp and /var log

06-05-2009, 10:00
Ok, try freeing up space in /tmp for instance, or /var/log.

06-05-2009, 09:17

06-05-2009, 09:14
Can you free up some space on root, and try again.

06-05-2009, 09:08
I can SSH into my RPS but when i NX the connection fails.
