Cloudshell LCD script exiting?

Unread post by Tenaja » Sat Mar 21, 2020 9:33 pm

I ran the script to display the info on the lcd, but now I can't get back to the terminal or gui. I restarted the thing, and the lcd script is in startup, apparently.

How do I exit it?

Thanks!

I am a Linux newbie, but I did figure out how to break out to the command line.

Note, with the script clearing the screen every second, you might not be able to see all of your typed letters. This is ok, usually. Sometimes it helps to hit Enter just after a refresh, so you have a full second to read the screen. You may even have half typed, cleared, then the other half, but the screen clear does not interrupt your command.

Step 1--EXIT:
Type "SU" to get super-user power. You may need to enter the password after this.
"TOP" to see what your process number is. You may need to time this with a refresh, but on my large screen, not all of the text was overwritten. Look for the Cloudshell LCD process. Mine was 535.
"kill 535" to kill the cloudshell LCD; you are now in the command prompt.

Step 2--remove the script from startup...
(to be continued)
If you have something to contribute, by all means...until then, I will continue my linux 101 class.

Step 2
I did this...
Type "sudo apt-get remove cloudshell-lcd" or remove the sudo if you are already in SU mode.
Type "reboot"
Wait an extraordinarily long amount of time for the reboot.

Now it's back to working with the gui.
