Linux: Hide Processes From Other Users

in Categories , , last updated August 21, 2014

I run a multi-user system. Most users access resources using ssh client. How to stop leaking process information to all users on Linux operating systems? How do I prevent users from seeing processes that do not belong to them on a Debian/Ubuntu/RHEL/CentOS Linux server?

gnome-terminal: There Was An Error Creating The Child Process For This Terminal

in Categories , , last updated December 4, 2012

I am using CentOS 5 on my laptop. If I open gnome-terminal by right clicking the desktop, I am getting an error that read as follows:

There was an error creating the child process for this terminal

How do I fix this problem and open a terminal by right clicking the Debian / Ubuntu / CentOS / Fedora / RHEL / Red hat Enterprise Linux 5.x desktop system?
