I have a grave problem with using bash/ Konsole if it will not recognize standard command symbols. My current problem is that when I enter the following query:
‘$ uname -a’,
bash replies as in the title above (i.e., it treats the dollar sign as Greek!)!
At first, I thought this might be related to my Danish keyboard, but I set it up as such during the installation of SUSE. Plus, just for safety’s sake, I checked the English keyboard on my dual-boot (SUSE+Win7) machine, and bash returns the same ignoramus (it has to be an ignoramus if it won’t recognize standard command symbols!) reply there too!
I saw a similar problem involving ‘sudo’ itself here (sudo: <command> command not found) here (http://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/439150-sudo-lt-command-gt-command-not-found ) and thought of asking there, but the thread was dated, and besides, I figure that others in search of a solution to the same problem would more easily find it (if anyone has a solution!) in separate posting dedicated specifically to that problem.
It is beyond my ability to find a solution to this problem via Google! At one point, I found a “solution” claiming that the problem was with my graphics card (an AMD-ATI that I later learned isn’t necessary in openSUSE 13.1, but have since run across conflicting advice!), but when I downloaded the 1-Click solution that was supposed to fix the dollar sign problem, it threw my display out of whack (a low resolution with icons and fonts that even the blind could see, so large were they!) so I went into the repository and deleted the AMD-ATI repository I had installed, and it took a few boots and reboots to put everything to rights after that!).
I am naturally loath to monkey with the graphics card any longer (and my two different desktops have different graphics cards, not surprisingly, yet the problem exists (persists!) on both computers… though they are both quite old PCs… ).
Anyone have a suggestion? (And please, if you are a superuser who feels the need to belittle noobs, don’t offer any advice, okay? I’m getting too much of that kind of treatment of late.)
