CDE

Hi all,
two things to ask:
1) when i have my hp CDE console dumped..is there a way to kill the console session or stop and start the CDE so i can work again on the ws without doing reboot?? in this case i can work remotely on the ws but not locally because the console is dumped....
2) when i open a window terminal it's default size is 80 x 24....is there a way to change the default dimension...if yes how??
Thanks, sorry for my bad english...hope you understand (expecially point 1 :)

Re: CDE


2 ways to kill your CDE session;

1. Kill the process under the logged in username called dtsession.

2. Ctrl-Alt-Shift-Break (Hold down first 3, hit Break/reset)

To start a dtterm larger than 80x24 kick it off from an existing window;

dtterm -ls -g 102x30 (or however big you want it)

Re: CDE

1) If you kill the console you can work from remote host.
2) In the window option>window size

Re: CDE

I am not an expert in CDE but ...

1) You can restart the CDE (without rebooting) by doing
the following:
# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc stop
# /sbin/init.d/dtlogin.rc start
This should reinitialize your CDE.

2) xterm look in the /etc/termcap for the following type
of terminals (i am pretty sure in that order) definition:
'xterm' , 'vt102', 'vt100','ansi'. It's up to you to change the li#24 and co#80 for whatever it suitable
to you. However, this will affect any terminal using
the same termcap. You may want to copy the vt102
entry to something like 'xterm'.
