Visual Studio -- Amazing!

There is only word amongst the following that any dev use for Visual Studio:
1. WOW!
2. Amazing!
3. Easy!
and many many more...
And for an open source enthusiast like me JEALOUS.
Yea really!

I spend 2 yrs of life completely dependant on Ubuntu , developing, experimenting and enjoying freedom.
Recently my internship forced me to use WinXP and Visual Studio as a developing environment. I was amazed by the ease and speed with which I could develop on Visual Studio.
MAN, Its really awesome!

There are a hell lot of tutorials available on "how to begin working on Visual Studio". I got 8,150,000 results.

See here for an introduction.
If you are a Win user then have fun!!!
and if u are like me i.e. another open source guy, lets go back to vim/anjuta/geany/(any other app which u like) and hope that one day we also get an amazing platform like Visual Studio.

How to upgrade from ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 using alternate CD/DVD

This is not the post which gonna help you in network upgrade or clean installation using ubuntu 9.10 CD, this post gonna help you if you wanna upgrade using Alternate CD/DVD.

So lets start.
There are two ways to download alternate CD/DVD:

1.Using torrents:
Torrents can be downloaded from
ubuntu-9.10-alternate-amd64.iso torrent

ubuntu-9.10-alternate-i386.iso torrent

For more lists visit here.

2.Using direct download of alternate CD/DVD:

There are number of servers that provide alternate CD/DVD link . The full list can be found here.
The download links in the list can be very slow so try this(but this link can be dead).

Some other links are:

Now once you have downloaded the iso file ( I assume that you have downloaded it in your Desktop)
first mount the cd to your cdrom using this command instead of ~/Desktop you can enter the directory where you have downloaded the iso image.(Use terminal found in Applications->Accessories->terminal)

sudo mount -o loop ~/Desktop/ubuntu-9.10-alternate-i386.iso /media/cdrom0

and then
gksu "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"
(if you are an ubuntu user)
kdesudo "sh /cdrom/cdromupgrade"
(if you are kubuntu user)

and just sit back and answer simple questions to upgrade to ubuntu 9.10.
One more thing to note while upgrade you will be asked whether "you want some packages to be downloaded using internet" , your answer should depend on:
1.Availability of internet( even if you dont have internet nothing to worry the cd image will be enough)
2.Speed of internet.
3.How fast you want your system to be upgraded.

Even if you answer no i.e. you dont want to download packages now but later, nothing to worry about as once the upgrade is finished you can easily open your update manager and then do as prompted,the update manager will take care of everything.

Ubuntu themes downloadable using apt-get

Really cool customized themes for ubuntu and its variants like kubuntu , xubuntu etc. can now be easily downloaded.
Here are the themes pics chose whatever you like the best:

If you like the themes then do this:

* Goto Applications > Accessories > Terminal and simply do
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 0x1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de

* You will have to add third party PPA launchpad repo to your synaptic package manager to download these themes.

* To Add the PPA launchpad repo, Goto System->Administration->Software Sources, goto the Third- Party Software tab and Click on ADD.

* Copy and paste the new PPA Launchpad repo address, corresponding to the version of Ubuntu you are using. Given below are the PPA for Ubuntu jaunty, Intrepid and Hardy respectively.

For Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main

For Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid

deb intrepid main
deb-src intrepid main

For Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy

deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main


* After adding new repo and authenticating steps, Reload the Synaptic Package Manager.

* To download and install all the themes available, simply mark and install the package zgegblog-themes. All theme packages will be installed by then.

OR simply type the following in terminal.

sudo apt-get install zgegblog-themes

* But if you have bandwidth limitations and dont want to install all the themes, there is a small workaround. This is not probably the ideal thing to do. But it definitely works ;-).

* Goto Synaptic Package Manager and right click on zgegblog-themes and select the properties option.

* In the Dependencies tab, you will have the list of individual themes(packages) available for download. For example, search for infinity-theme in Synaptic. If you know a better way to do this, please share :-)

* Almost all themes are exceptionally good, while wild-shine-theme, balanzan theme and bamboo-zen-theme are definitely the best. It is worth a look. Give it a try.

Update: A new darkish theme is included recently and it is aptly named showtime. Just do a sudo apt-get install showtime-theme. This is a must for all who love dark themes(me being one, i especially love the new updated wallpaper)

Google Chrome Blog: Google Chrome OS - FAQ

Google Chrome Blog: Google Chrome OS - FAQ

Google Chrome OS pics leaked(One of the biggest internet hoax of this year)

Google chrome OS screenshots have been leaked.Google Chrome OS is based on the Linux kernel and is an open source project that is currently supported by Acer, Asus, Adobe, Freescale, HP, Lenovo, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments.

An anonymous person created a Chrome OS Leak blog and posted screenshots of the private developer beta of the OS. As per the blog post, Google representatives visited the Acer team to show distinct features of the Chrome OS. The Google Chrome OS installation on Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop took about 10 minutes. Here are a few highlights that were shown in the Chrome OS Demo.

The 'Chrome Bar' or the task bar, which auto-hides, appears at the bottom of the UI just like Apple Mac OS X's dock. Navigation is powered with 'Exploration' that is like a file explorer, and 'Browser', which basically is a web browser with search options. If configured, even the Chrome Bar can feature search bar. Apparently, Google Talk was the only application
installed and it had a different logo.

Also, whenever Chrome OS based netbooks come out, the netbooks will carry the Chrome logo in place of the current Windows logo.

The person who posted about the Chrome OS noted that the operating system was extremely stripped down and pretty fast. Sounds exciting, eh? Many such early leaks can be expected till Google releases the Chrome OS code publicly.

Not to forget that Google has used web applications as platform for this Chrome browser based operating system. Compatibility of all the existing productivity suites and general applications are far from reality at this moment. Also, lot of application development work is yet to begin for enabling the web based applications. And since Adobe is one of the partners, expect to see more Adobe AIR based web applications to work in conjunction with several other apps.

Google Chrome OS

Google has anounced its own OS:
You can read more about GCOS here .
This new OS will be launched in the next half of 2010 (pretty fast for an OS development only in one year!!!) for netbooks.
It will fast,lightweight and secure ( atleast the googlers claim!).
GCOS will also be open-source!
Is this a threat to MS???!!!
I dont think so!
Lets wait and watch.

New Ubuntu 9.10 alpha1

I downloaded alpha1 from here.
Installing ubuntu 9.10 was amazing I never expected alpha version OS to install so smoothly.
Installation is pretty same except that it will be non-GUI ( I mean there will be a GUI but mouse wont work you will see a blue screen where you have to enter your choices using keyboard ) and if you have internet connection you must be ready with the specifications such as gateway , name server etc.

Once installation is complete it feels like the same ubuntu though a few packages behave unlikely ( or I should say freeze) .

Except this all is going well with me and koala. :)

My notes on CRONJOB

The notes I have made does not look into the kernel implementation of crons in much detail .What I have tried to emphasize on is how to make/edit a cron file.

1. Unixgeeks Article by: cogNiTioN
2.The good old Wikipedia

What is Cron ?
Cron is the name of a program that enables unix users to execute commands or scripts (groups of commands) automatically at a specified time/date. It is normally used for system admin commands, like makewhatis, which builds a search database for the man -k command, or for running a backup script, but can be used for anything. A common use for it today is connecting to the internet and downloading your email.
Cron is a daemon i.e. it needs to be started once and will remain dormant until it is required. The cron daemon is known as crond.It remains dormant until the time as specified by one of its config files known as crontabs.

A bit of History

Version 7 Unix contained cron written by Brian Kernighan.It was invoked from /etc/inittab
The major drawbacks were:
1.Resource Intensive.
2.Commands in Crontab file can only be run on superuser mode.

Then came the cron with multi user capabilities and on 1987 came the Vixie Cron.Today we have many versions of cron available to us.
We will look at Vixie Cron only here.

Using Corn

If you enlarge the above image you will see 3 fields:
1.The command
2.The header
3.The main job schedule

1.The command is nothing but display of the contents of the file, you can use any editor of your choice.
2.The header:

The first line in the header contains:
SHELL which specifies the "shell" crons run under.If you dont write this line the crontab will take the "shell" from your /etc/passwd file.

PATH field helps in running scripts located at various places like /usr/bin etc.

3.Then comes the main job schedule where the first line looks something like:
# m h dom mon dow user command
m stands for minute
h for hour
dom for day of the month
mon for month
dow day of the week
user for the user who runs the command
command is your man who does the work.

We can use a bit of regex here.If you dont know anything about regex here dont worry I will explain it.
* means "take anything"
- means "take anything in the range"
/x means "run every x hour/minute/day"

For example

59 11 * * 1-5 root

m->59 minute
h->11 hour
dom->at every day of the month
mon->at every month
dow->from 1st day of the week to 5th day(i.e. from monday to friday)
user->as a root
command->run the command ""

I hope its clear.

How to repair your xserver

If you were playing with your video-drivers and suddenly found that your GUI for the desktop is gone,then what will you do?
This may happen very often (especially if you are a beginner and reading various blogs about linux and trying different stuffs) so just after setting your machine do this:

cd /etc/X11 #check that 'X' is in caps
sudo cp xorg.conf xorg.conf.backup #this will copy the configuration file of your xserver the name xorg.conf.backup

Now if your GUI is gone then enter the safe mode by pressing ESC at grub menu , login as a root
cd /etc/X11
cp xorg.conf.backup xorg.conf

and then reboot using
shutdown -r now

You will get your desktop back.

Ubuntu 9.04 testing A golden chance for ubuntu lovers

Hi guys this post is for all the lovers of "geeky adventures".
Ubuntu 9.04 or Jaunty Jackalope scheduled to release its alpha version 3 on Jan 15th 2009 ( you can see the whole release schedule here.
Here is your chance to help the Ubuntu community who has been giving a wonderful Linux OS(This is debatable but I think many of you will agree with me).
Read down if you have the GUTS for adventures and can take risk , like to live your life on the edge.
For helping the ubuntu community keep in mind:
1.You need not to be a programmer or a computer science student.
2.You need not to be a highly experienced ubuntu user.
3.But you must know how ubuntu development works.You can know it from Ubuntu development Page
4.You must have a launchpad account. If you dont have one register here
5.You must be well aware of thr release schedule of the ubuntu,get it here.
IMPORTANT NOTE:The testing OS will be highly broken and should not be trusted to keep important data.
I have downloaded the Ubuntu 9.04 iso cd for x86 from here.My system configuration is 512 MB RAM, P4 2.8 GHz, 80 GB HD.
I will install the OS today and will come back tomorrow to share my experiences.
(As I am also a novice in the OS development I really dont know the exact method to report bugs but since I am planning to learn I will soon come up with a good tutorial on how to do so)

What to do after installing ubuntu 8.04/8.10

Today I did a fresh installation of Ubuntu 8.04 so I thought I must write what I have done after installing ubuntu:

  1. First setup the internet connection.This is how I did:

  2. Left click on the icon in the top right (identify by hovering the mouse if it says "Manual Network Configuration" you have hit the bull's eye) click again on "Manual Configuration" then unlock it and put all the specification needed for your network.If your network needs a proxy then go to System-->Preferences-->Network Proxy,enter your password and there click the Manual Proxy Configuration,enter the required fields(there you will see a small button named "Details" click on it and enter the username and password for your proxy).

  3. Settings of Synaptic Package Manager:

  4. Go to System-->administration-->Synaptic Package Manager.Go to settings-->prefernces-->network(in the top panel) enter HTTP proxy ,ftp proxy and authentication.
    Now update your system:
    Go to System-->Administration-->Update Manager
    click check
    Enter your password
    Then click Apply
    (You have to wait for a long time depending on your internet speed . Go grab a coffee or chat with you girlfriend using pidgin or phone or just call her to show your new linux machine).

  5. Apps:

  6. I love vlc and amarok,ssh and putty ,ssh and putty are needed for remote desktop viewing.(More about ssh and putty later).I also like liferea feed reader for linux.
    To install all of these I used the terminal and the command used is
    sudo apt-get install vlc amarok ssh putty liferea

  7. My Windows Drives:

  8. I have dual boot ubuntu with windows so I want to acess my windows drives from linux,to do this simply install ntfs-config
    sudo apt-get install ntfs-config
    Then go to Applications-->System Tools->ntfs configuration tool click on it and check the drives you want to mount to.Once you clicked OK you will be asked if you want to have write access to these drives(check if you want) then again click OK.

  9. More Apps:

  10. If you need more app jus use synaptic package manager it has everything stored for you.

Now My ubuntu box is ready.....
(If you have more queries just post it here.)
Let me give you a simple command to install important stuffs:
sudo apt-get install build-essential vlc amarok ssh geany linuxdcpp sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts ntfs-config

How I repaired my GUI

It was an easy job.
How I screwed my GUI:
I changed the permissions of the /usr to 777!!!
Never Ever change the permission of the filesystems in Ubuntu.
After my GUI crashed I entered ubuntu in recovery mode changed the permission of the /usr directory to 755,then deleted my previous account and added one new account thats it.

If your Ubuntu GUI has crashed drop a comment here I will try my best to help you.

Ubuntu GUI crashed

My ubuntu 8.04 PC crashed today,:(.
So I googled to find a solution---->NO HELP!!!!!
Then I posted my problem in ubuntuforums you may find it

I was just tweaking my ubuntu system so that I can install some external C++ includes.
So I did the biggest mistake a Ubuntu user could do that is I changed the permissions of the /usr folder.....

Never do this....

I will post the complete solution once I am able to fix my GUI.

Hi!!! Guys

I started this blog a long time ago,but then I had nothing adventurous in my life so I gave up blogging.
Today I realized that I should share my experience with the rest of the world about all the things that I have done in these days.Actually this break was really fruitful and I learned a lot about computers , maths and software engineering.
I hope my experience (better to say mistakes) might be helpful to teach you something.

Dont worry I gonna tell u how to do that:
