How convenient: "you're wrong but I'm not going to prove it". tongue.gif

I use quite few applications that require X11 or another gui interface to setup and maintain for rca or other encryption keys and administration. Believe me, I tried to find anyway around installing graphical software on my boxes but I couldn't find it.

The worst offender seems to be db2. Mostly because the damn dba's cant figure crap out without it and I'm busy enough babysitting my own team.

You didn't offer another way of doing things though. What you did was say my method was poor, then made some dumb claims about GUIs being required on servers and refused to substantiate your claims when the inevitable argument broke out.
Fair enough. I probably did over-react. For that I whole-heartedly apologise. smile.gif

It's no excuse, but it's been a stressful week at work this week so I probably added a negative tone to your comments where it wasn't.

In answer to your question, that sed command was taken from an install script I'd written, so it was quicker for me to paste that than talk the OP through a command line text editor and the sshd config file. So pure laziness on my part.

I appreciate the honesty and you're right, I didn't offer any alternatives. I was trying to understand the problem before I offered solutions. My first thought was vnc client was fubar...second was that a simple stty would fix it (auto complete command escapes me, I don't spend much time in bash.)

Primarily I ask questions because I love seeing how other people approach problems in a different manner from my own. Again, I'm a senior admin and I'm fairly set in my ways but I always value new eyes on a familiar problem because they might find a better way.

To be honest it's been a pretty stressful week for me to. I had one of my junior admin's "forget" he had a server down......for the last 3 weeks.....causing deadlines on a major project to be missed.....I was/am pretty pissed. (!@#!@$@#%!@#$!@#$%^I^U(@#$!#@$!@#) mad.gif

The other side of this is that I love going outside my comfort zone. I administrate all of *nix but my expertise is mainly in the unix side of the world where you don't have bash (csh/ksh/sh) and vi and nano (ugh) are the ways of doing things. Linux is a familiar beast with just a different way of doing things.

set -o vi ftw.

I run java apps, like minecraft server and stuff and iamgine theres two fields, one with username another with password.
If i press tab it used to go from the username field straight to the password field.
Now it just doesnt work

it also used to autocomplete names in the terminal, that doesnt work aswell

You can run Minecraft server headless: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-minecraft-server-on-linux

What other Java apps do you run?

I know I sound like a command line fanboy, but if you can remove your Xorg dependency then you should give yourself more resources for Minecraft. smile.gif

Yes I know. But minecraft was just an example.
I run multiple instances of a program named tribot.
And each time I open it I have to authenticate, input my username and password. I used to use centos 5 and if I pressed TAB when I inputed my username it went straight to the password field, just like in Windows.

Now it just doesn't do that, it seems the tab key isn't functioning in debian 7

Ah ok. Fair enough.

As Black Magix said, Debian will support tab, it will be a problem with either your VNC viewer / client or the VNC server. What packages are you using for VNC at either end?

I followed this guide: http://www.namhuy.net/3111/install-vnc-server-debian-7.html

And i isntalled XFCE as listed there.
I tried another VNC VIEWER and tab doesnt work

It's not the best, but could you give x11vnc a try? You can start it from the command line though you'll either need to specify a non-standard port or temporarily disable your existing VNC server (personally I'd recommend the latter - but it's up to you)

This will allow you to test another server without the stress of having to de-install the old one and install a new one. And if that exhibits the same issue then the next thing I'd consider is a character set mismatch between your workstation and the server (though you wouldn't normally expect that to affect the tab key)

"Didn't work" how? The tab button still failed? Or x11vnc failed? And if the latter, with what error message?
