Happy Valentine’s day

Love? What is it? It can be affection between two persons, trust on a friend, respect for your elders and what not!

Well said: Love is in the air. ❤

Today was really memorable for me. I went to an orphanage home (I met little wonders over there). That feeling of dancing with them, singing for them was just magical 🙂

It was beyond perfection. I have visited such place first time in my life and was just mesmerized in that moment. I was so happy by seeing a smile on their faces. Those twinkle eyes were just priceless. They all took my heart.

Taare Zameen par :))
Jaise Rango Bhari Peechkari…
Jaise Titliyan Phoolo Ki Pyari…
Jaise Bin Matlab Ka Pyara Rishta Ho Koi..  ^_^

P.S: A click from the day

“We make a ‘LIVING’ by what we get, and make a ‘LIFE’ by what we give” 🙂


A New Beginning

I was thinking to write down my thoughts from few days, finally got the chance today.

I absorbed many of the new things in this weekend. Starting with Design Aids Project (Mainly LaTeX), How to get started with a good Business Proposal, as my team had cleared the first phase of B-plan competition.

This exhilarates the spark in me to move further with some of the new tasks.

Apart from all above gossip :p

I converted a png image into a .txt file as I need it for LaTeX project.

Do refer OCR for seeing the steps.

Apart from this I completed Hacktoberfest  Challange too and got a mail from Digital Ocean for a new tee 😀

I worked upon improving Readme files, about Resume in LaTeX. A little bit about general information addition in the documentation regarding few topics.

Overall it was good spending time with GitHub :p 😉


But still, I found that last 2 weeks were not that much productive as it can be. So again on the track now after clearing all of the stuff in which I was indulged from few days.

.. 🙂 ..

Slog and Blog!

Today I tried setting an environment for computer graphics system so that output of c++ program can be seen from a terminal as well.

For this, I followed this link suggested by one of my friend (Gagan)

I was getting an error explained below after running the command

sudo apt-get install build-essentials


E: Encountered a section with no Package: header

E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_natty_main_binary-i386_Packages

E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

For solving above I ran below two commands:

sudo rm -vf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

sudo apt-get update 

Apart from this my octave Ghost error also got solved. The problem was mainly related to broken packages in the installation of PPA packages and octave software.

Moreover, I got involved in Design Aiding project.

P.S: Music is LIFE (May be irrelevant here, but karo jo dil chahe :p ^_^ )

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 … 🙂


Back on Track

Hi Bloggers and my readers 🙂

I just thought of writing a blog as I hadn’t published any of the stuff from past few days. So here it begins(or you can say it’s already started :p)

I really put my brain into my academic work from last few days but had gained knowledge regarding some simple things. Many of you may be familiar with it but for me it was new.

I got to know about Snipping tool in Windows to simply crop(It is so common but pitty me that I got to know about it now.)

But it’s better to be late than never.

I don’t know what’s happening that I was not getting much output as the error remains for so long. Sometimes I feel stuck into it. The answer I got was that may be beacause of my inner self. Yeah! may be I wasn’t trying that hard that much I can do.

But will definately boost myself now. One more thing I got to know about is that we can make a bootable pendrive through ubuntu “Startup Disk Creator”

Apart from this I had made my academic practical report in Latex just fro knowledge purpose related to LaTeX.

P.S: The title is a kind of motivation for me to get back on Track…. 🙂

Enhancing Knowledge

Today I got to know about a command in linux using which we can merge two pdf files and can even burst a pdf file into separate pages.

sudo apt-get install pdftk pdftk file1.pdf file2.pdf file3.pdf cat output newfile.pdf

pdftk newfile.pdf burst

One more thing which can be done is to join two pdf files in landscape view.

pdfjam Page1.pdf Page2.pdf --nup 2x1 --landscape --outfile Page1+2.pdf

Today I also helped some of my friends in LaTeX.

I also put my hands on windows today and installed Appserv and run my octave project over there.

Apart from this I opened firefox from tty using command:

xinit /usr/bin/firefox — :9

Tty refers to “teletype”.

Its a device that acts as a Terminal in UNIX and we can do GUI work from there also.

Press Ctrl + alt +f1 to open tty. To open another tty press ctrl+ alt + f2

To exit press ctrl + alt + f7

Signing off ………………….. 😉

The Day’s Deeds

I was getting a message on Windows saying its LICENSE will expire soon. Go to settings and activate it till 19th August.

I first searched about the drawbacks of this. As such it will not harm any of my PC data but will let me use windows with some less functionalities.

For solving this one can use Windows Loader or Kmspico. But wait think about it!!

As kmspico is an Illegal program. So better to avoid it.

I also put my hands on mutt today. Firstly let us talk about mutt.

Mutt is a small but very powerful text based program for reading electronic mail under UNIX /Linux operating systems or for CentOS also, including support for color terminals, MIME, and a threaded sorting mode.

I had tried it on ubuntu 15.10 .Below are the installation steps for mutt.

sudo apt-get install mutt

After installing you need to go to your gmail settings and then go to Forwading and POP/IMAP.

Then click on Enable IMAP

After this go to configuration instructions of your email client and note down the Incoming mail server port from there and Save the changes.

Now make a directory and files for mutt :

mkdir -p ~/.mutt/cache/headers
  mkdir ~/.mutt/cache/bodies
  touch ~/.mutt/certificates
  touch ~/.mutt/muttrc
  vim ~/.mutt/muttrc

Now add below data in muttrc file or you can add much more as per your preferences:

set ssl_starttls=yes
set ssl_force_tls=yes

set imap_user = ‘sharmadeepti888@gmail.com’
set imap_pass = ‘****’

set from=’sharmadeepti888@gmail.com’
set realname=’Deepti Sharma’

# Change the following line to a different editor you prefer.

set editor = “vim”

set folder = imaps://imap.gmail.com/
set spoolfile = imaps://imap.gmail.com/INBOX
set postponed=”imaps://imap.gmail.com/[Gmail]/Drafts”

set header_cache = “~/.mutt/cache/headers”
set message_cachedir = “~/.mutt/cache/bodies”
set certificate_file = “~/.mutt/certificates”

set smtp_url = ‘smtps://sharmadeepti888@gmail.com:****@smtp.gmail.com:465/’
set include
set sort = ‘reverse-threads’
set sort_aux = last-date-received
set move = no
set imap_keepalive = 993

Now just type mutt on console for accessing your gmail through terminal.

For more info read the manual page of mutt.

Apart from this I want to discuss about some of the Android Apps which can be used for navigation purpose.

The first choice about which hardly there can be a person who is having no idea is Google Maps.

But I want to try some other options. There is maps.me app also. You can even add a location. It uses OSM data/map. It shows distance and time to reach your destination.

Another app I had tried was Navmi. I had installed the map of India once and now I can search on it offline. It shows the distance and time taken to reach at a particular place. It also gives ideas about the recent places in your location. You can change the theme and appearance of map also as per your preferences.

The last one I had searched is GPS Route. Among all I likes this one the must as its having better interface than others and I got to recognize the way much easier using this app. It shows different ways using highways , railway lines or not etc.

Though it needs internet.

I also got to know about Cmake and little bit more about php in today’s presentation session.
