Installation of sqldeveloper on ubuntu 12.4


First, make sure you have JDK 7 installed. Then,
  1. Install alien with the command sudo apt-get install alien. This is used to convert RPM packages
  2. Download the Oracle SQL Developer package if you have not done so already.
  3. Run alien on the RPM package: alien -d package.rpm.
  4. Install the package with the command sudo dpkg -i package.deb. If there is a message saying there is a dependency problem while installing it, you can fix it by running sudo apt-get -f install.

Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu


This is a guide to help you install Google Chrome on Ubuntu Hardy Heron, there are other ways, but this is the one that works for me, hope it will help you.

Ready to give it a shoot?

Step 1 - Update WINE
In order for the Chrome installation on Ubuntu to be successful you have to update your WINE version to 1.1.4.
Type (or copy) this in to your command line -
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list
sudo apt-get update


Step 2 – Get all necessary software

Winetricks is a script that will allow you to get all the necessary software you need for this installation.
The last command below will install Firefox into WINE, this is needed for the third step.

wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
mv winetricks /usr/sbin/
winetricks riched20 riched30 flash msxml3 corefonts firefox

Install Firefox into WINE.


Step 3 - Installing Chrome

Once you have installed Firefox into WINE, launch Firefox in WINE and go to - http://www.google.com/chrome/
Download and run Chrome setup.


Step 4 – Launch Google Chrome

Once the download and install are complete, type this command to launch Chrome -

wine “$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/$USER/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe” –no-sandbox –new-http

Hope this worked for you and you can use Google Chrome off of you Ubuntu system.

How to remove google chrome from linux?


If you are using Ubuntu, you can remove it either from the Synaptic Package Manager tool, or from the command line with the command sudo apt-get remove google-chrome. This will not work with most other distributions.

Root Password


Hi Daniel,
Ubuntu has the root account locked by default. If you need to run as root, you use sudo username (This is recommended)
If you want to have a root shell on an Ubuntu system (It is not suggestedsuggested)
sudo -i
This is equivalent to the "su -" command sudo -s
This is equivalent to the "su" command

I downloaded VLC for ubuntu but i couldn't install it


The reason for that could be because some of the dependencies have not been met.
You can try these methods:
First the easy one: Click on the link below:
http://ubuntu-tweak.com
Then click on the download now button. Actually this will download and install the ubuntu tweak program.
Once you have this installed, go to System tools and then to Ubuntu tweak from there.
Once ubuntu tweak opens, click on the application center. On the right hand side you will see a list of programs. Check whether VLC player is on the list. If yes. select it and click apply. Most chances are that it will install the VLC.
Else: Move on to the the Terminal.
Open a terminal.
Copy and paste the commands below:
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/jaunty.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get update
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install non-free-codecs
-----------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2 libxine1-ffmpeg gxine mencoder
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install vlc mplayer

------------------------------------------------------------
I have drawn some lines to separate the individual commands. Especially the first one is long and may confuse, where one command starts and end.
Hope this helps. Don't give up on ubuntu. If you are beginner, it may look difficult for a week or so. Then you will find it is way better than windows. Try Xine media player also. And K3b for burning disk.

Pictosniff will not start


I'm not too sure how far you have gotten. Have you used make to install pictosniff? If you have, then the following probably won't do any good, but you can read it anyways.

So you extract it using tar in the command line, or using Archive Manager. Then you navagate there using command like and type make when you get inside the folder. Then you type sudo make install. It will ask for your password. This should install it. Then you can do sudo pictosniff to run it (although the program might not be called pictosniff after you install it).

Audacity sound ubuntu


Your command is slightly flawed. Try again as follows, making sure to include all spaces (copy and paste the command if it'll help)

sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils start

Note the space between sudo and /etc/blahblah and the space between /etc/blahblah and start. Also note the occlusion of the second L to the end of the alsa-utils command.

Hope this helps,
