Re: Shell Scripting Info

I was using VirtualBox and WE, but that said I found windows+key combinations were great hotkeys for the virtualizing application. You might have some success with that. It shouldn't conflict with any Linux hotkeys, and there should be enough spare ones after Windows and the screen reader have taken their share to give you all you need. I definitely found it useful to tie common tasks like saving state and restoring snapshots to hotkeys in this manner.

Good luck finding one that doesn't interfear with something because you have to try to make it not interfear with Jaws and not interfere with your orca and gnome commands.

Well one could easily set it to another key combo that doesn’t do that, right?

I use it without scripts. I know there are scripts but it works fine. Only one problem I have and it’s a minor annoyance and I am sure if I wanted to script it I could script around it. I set my leave vmware window key to control-alt-shift. This doesn't interfere with Jaws but once I am out of the vmware window then control is locked because of the control-alt-shift combo. It just means I have to do control-alt-shift. Then control-shiftlock and then I am off and running. So I have got really fast typing that. I have found no other problems with jaws.

And is VMware player accessible all the way with JAWS? I’ve heard various complaints about that.

My Ubuntu 64 under vm ware player on a Intel I3 2.1 with only 4 GB runs vinux just fine giving it 3 gb of ram and 2 cpu. you can give it up to 3.8 without killing the machine. if you only have 4 GB to give. I will let you know how much better it is when I get the 8 GB put in my laptop. Note though it would also help if you had a laptop with a 7200 speed drive most are not though. Mine is only a 5400 but it with my low end hardware it still runs really well. It even runs better on my Mac book pro under fusion which is just vmware for Mac. On there I am giving it a full 4 gb because I have 8 gb and at the time didn't know it was ok to go ahead and run it at 75 % of the memory available. Anyway it runs very good on my machine. I have found though that most of the AMD machines don't run vmware very well so since you have intel you should be pretty good.

Speaking of virtual, and sorry to get off topic, but I’m curious. I plan to run a virtual instance of Open Suse from Novell on my laptop using VMware player starting this summer. I want to get acquainted with the Unix environment just for the heck of it, but two of my friends say that virtual instances of any Linux distro don’t work very well and that they “blow”. What do you have to say about that? Do you agree or disagree? I ask because I want this to be a cool experience rather than a waste of my time. Thanks.

Hi Storm,

Very cool. What does someone need to take the class? I have Vinux Virtual on my machine at home.

Hi,
It looks good. The only thing is, although you mension the Vinux Project you do not make it a link. It should link to:
http://www.vinuxproject.org/
Also, if you would like another bash resource I have been teaching a class in a new Vinux experiment called Vinux Classes. It's an irc chat room set up specifically for teaching Vinux related classes. All the classes are logged and are located at:
http://classroom.vinuxproject.org/
Thanks
Storm
