Access (K) ubuntu console with a single key

Yakuake is a Quake-style terminal emulator based on KDE Konsole technology which makes the console more user friendly. If you need the ability to quickly pull down a console to run a few commands with a keystroke, and then make the console disappear again with another quick keystroke. YaKuake is exactly what you are looking for.

The interface is highly customizable, you can adjust the height, the width, the horizontal position you can change the keyboard shortcuts and make it retract automatically when it looses focus.

It uses the same terminal settings as Konsole and like Konsole it has multiple tabs so you can have more terminals running at the same time. If you exit KDE while YaKuake is still running in the background, it’ll start up automatically when you log back into KDE.

YaKuake is a very simple application, but it’s also very useful. I use it all the time when I want quick access to a terminal to run one or two commands, such as doing an apt-get update; apt-get upgrade, checking a man page to find the proper syntax for a command, or moving a few files around.

In ubuntu you can install YaKuake with a simple command

sudo apt-get install yakuake

YaKuake is released under GPL license and you can get it from the site:

Find IP Address of your Gtalk or Chat friends via Email

Hack I.P address of your friends computer with an easy to use service provided by SpyPig.Guys over there at Spypig make use of the same technology spammers use to see if your email is real and actively read.Thinking of how this is done ? Spammers first extract email address from different websites comment section or directly from the contact address or mailto: links.Then they build a list of these email id’s and sends out emails randomly to all of them.Spammers embed images in their emails. Once you open your email, the image loads and, a unique identifier is sent back to the spammer letting them know that yours is a valid email address.

Here we use this same technique to find the I.P address of your friends computer.Just follow these simple steps.

1)Go to

2)Enter your email address. [address which is used to notify you when your message has been read]

3)Enter your message title.[for eg. your friends name]

3)Select your tracking image.

You can select the white background picture so that your friends doesn’t know that you are tracking him.[you can also upload your own images as well but needs registration]

4)Number of notifications to receive.

Select this according to your wish.[10 recommended]

5)Click the Activate button.Once the image is generated, you have 60 seconds to copy paste the same in your email and send the email.If you are using Firefox then click and drag the tracking image and drop it into your email. Don't use your right-mouse click to copy the image.

6)Once you have copied the image in the email,send it within 60 seconds so that you itself is not tracked.

Problem with this image tracking service is that if your friend is using Gmail,then he will have to click “Display images below” button for your tracking code to work properly. So make sure you are sending him some sort of images or e-cards so that he needs to click that button to read your mail.

When your friend reads the email, you will receive a notification from spypig about the time when it is read and also your friends IP address :).This technique can be used for identifying your Gtalk,yahoo messenger,msn messenger or any other chat messenger friends IP address so that you can know exactly where they live or if they are faking their real identity.

Force Idle Status on Google Talk

We all love chatting. Google Talk gives us freedom to talk anywhere and anytime wiht our online friends. Message them instantaneously, transfer files, share photos - we love it all.
But what we don't like is getting disturbed by some unwanted friend. We really don't want to chat at that moment but we are forced for maintaining relations.

Can we trick Google Talk? Can we show idle status and be active at the same time?

The best way to keep unwanted friends away is to be invisible or keeping our status idle.Google talk has no provision of invisible status(however you can always choose invisible status in gmail embedded chat)

Idle status in gtalk means you aren't using the feature for last 15 minutes.Being idle is more advantageous than it may seem. You can always make excuses to your colleagues. Didn't you saw the idle status - I was having lunch, I was watching movie, - I was not in my chair, - My brother was playing some stupid game etc.

So far as many people know, you can't make your status idle. Its an automatic update which ticks after 15 minutes of inactivity.

gAlwaysIdle is a small application which gets integrated with gtalk and forcibly sets your status to idle.

gAlwaysIdle is solution for your dilemma. Now chat with whom you initiate and remain idle to all others.

Enabling the desktop cube in Ubuntu

To make Ubuntu more attractive to the end user, the Ubuntu developers have included some eye-candy 'desktop effects' with the recent versions of Ubuntu. These are actually done with external plugins, such as the Expo plugin. Ubuntu comes with some pre-installed visual effect plugins but only a few of them are active by default. A one feature that most people ask for but seems not available is the Desktop Cube. The Cube is also already installed but not enabled. This article will guide you to manage the plugins and enable the cube.

In this article I assume,
That you have a working Internet connection.
That you have a faster graphics card with at leaset 64 MB of memory.

We need to follow the steps below.

Install CompizConfig Settings Manager
Enable the Desktop Cube
Using the Desktop Cube
Configure Desktop Cube

Install CompizConfig Settings Manager

These plugins I mensioned are actually components of a software package caled Compiz Fusion. By default, the configuration tool for Compiz Fusion does not come with Hardy. So the first thing we need is to install that configuration tool. This tool is called CompiConfig Settings Manager.
To install, type the following command in the Terminal.

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Press y and then press Enter when it asks to confirm installation. Exit the terminal after you have successfully installed the Settings Manager.

Enable the Desktop Cube

First, you need to enable the desktop effects if you have not done so. To do this, go to the System menu and then Preferences --> Appearance. Click on the Visual Effecs tab. Select the Normal option or the Extra option. Then close the window.
However if it displays a message saying 'Desktop effects could not be enabled.' that means your graphics card is not supported or video memory is not enough.

Now we are going to use the CompizConfig Settings Manager to enable the Cube. To start CompizConfig Settings Manager, go to the System menu and then Preferences --> Advanced Desktop Effects. That is the CompizConfig Settings Manager.
On the left side pane, under the Filter, type cube.
Cube and related plugins will appear on the other side. To enable, just mark the check box in front of each you prefer. When enabling Desktop Cube, it may ask to disable Desktop Wall (or something like that). To avoid collisions between plugins, it is necessary to disable the Desktop Wall. So disable the desktop Wall and enable the Desktop Cube.
Now you have successfuly enabled the Cube.

Using the Desktop Cube

To see whether all are working properly, press Ctrl + Alt + -> or Ctrl + Alt + <- to rotate the Cube.

Configure Desktop Cube

In the CompizConfig Settings Manager, if you click on the plugin name instead of the check box, you can configure the plugin as you prefer. For example, the key bidings to enable/ disable plugin, effect appearance and etc.
After you finished working with CompizConfig Settings Manager, close it.
