Time to be in Action!

Today was an ok day. One thing I did today is to get back to blogging :p

Firstly, I installed google chrome on ubuntu through terminal:

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [arch=amd64] http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

Apart from this I got to know about Grammarly

Currently working upon flatpak.

Apart from this got to know about downloading youtube videos from terminal

sudo apt-get install youtube-dl

sudo apt-get install python-pip

sudo pip install –upgrade youtube-dl

youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXh35CtnSyU

The best way to predict the future is to create it … 🙂


Ubuntu was Flickering

I always heard of that leaving something in between is just not acceptable. But realized it first time.

Yesterday, I run the following command on terminal:
sudo apt-get upgrade

But then I stopped the process in between (which is definately not good).
After that when I started my ubuntu OS it was flickring (shaking or dancing :p) and due to this system speed was also reducing.

To solve this problem I ran following commands:

sudo dpkg –configure -a

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo reboot

Problem Solved .. 🙂

Apart from above, today I just randomly put my hands again on Internet problem of Ubuntu. I just changed the signal antenna to 3 in driver’s config file. To my surprise, it worked. 😀

P.S: I tried IRC for help and found it good.


So as the featured image clearly indicates the topic of my blog, lets get started.

What basically one need to do to accomplish this work?
The answer is dedication 😀

Obviously yes but relating  it more to technical world, one need to have:

  • Scripts in PHP for accessing shell
  • WebServer
  • Mysql
  • PhpMyadmin

It’s not a big deal just try to find the logic and working of every PHP file and you are done.

You can get the code of PHP-shell over here

Read various files in it to understand it’s working properly.

P.S: I had tried most of the my work on Ubuntu.

Game of Shell & Browser

While surfing on net I got to know some of the interesting things. Starting with a technique in which you can operate web browser from your ubuntu terminal.

I never though of this but to my surprise it exists and I installed it.

sudo apt-get install w3m w3m-img

  • Now, to open a webpage simply type in a terminal window: w3m (url of site)
  • to open a new page: type Shift+U
  • to go back one page: Shift+B
  • open a new tab: Shift+T

OR one can go for this also:

sudo apt-get install links2

Then, to load a page:

links2 http://www.google.com

One more is there:

sudo apt-get install lynx-cur

lynx (url of site)

Then use up-down arrows to go to a particular place and then press enter.

Though above was not the part of my task. But I got to know something new so thought of kinda sharing it … 🙂

Grub Problem

Oops! I deleted one of my old ubuntu patition from windows and after that when I get back on my system. I was able to see a black screen only with a saying:


Later on I got to know that the particular partition which I had deleted was having grub settings in it. So I did the following steps to recover the grub.


It gives list in this way: (hd0,msdos1),(hd0,msdos2) and similarly  so on …

ls (hd0,msdos6)

Above will help in recognising partition of ubuntu.

set root=(hd0,msdos6)

set prefix=(hd0,msdos6)/boot/grub
insmod normal

After this you will be able to see the grub menu.
Choose ubuntu then install & update the grub

sudo apt-get install grub2 OR sudo apt-get install grub
sudo update-grub

Problem Solved … 🙂

Brightness stuck in Ubuntu 14.04

I recently installed ubuntu 14.04 on my laptop. There I got to meet my old friend. His name is Error. :p

The problem was well said from the  title itself. It was simply stuck at a point. As I always work in less brightness mode so it was creating a problem somehow for me.

So I finally made my mind to make my old friend one of my wellwishers. 😉

Firstly,  run the command below in terminal to know what video/audio card is used for the backlight/brightness:

ls /sys/class/backlight/

Or you can simply check it in: System Settings -> Details

Now open the terminal and make a new file if it didn’t exist:

sudo touch /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

Now, add the following in that file:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "card0"
        Driver      "intel"
        Option      "Backlight"  "intel_backlight"
        BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"

Now reboot it and Problem solved.

P.S: Ting ting ti ting :p
