There are two steps to creating a user. First we'll run the smbpasswd utility to create a samba password for the user.
sudo smbpasswd -a username
Next, we'll add that username to the smbusers file.
sudo gedit /etc/samba/smbusers
Add in the following line, substituting the username with the one you want to give access to. The format is = "". You can use a different samba user name to map to an ubuntu account, but that's not really necessary right now.
username = "username"
Now you can create samba shares and give access to the users that you listed here
Grub is a Linux boot manager that is used to switch between two or more operating systems installed on your machines. By default, Grub's background is plain black with white text. In this article, we will change Grub's default background to any image of your choice.
1 Create the background image
Using your favorite image editing software, create a logo or an image that will look good even with very few colors. Save your image as a PNG with only 14 colors and resize it to 640x480 pixels.
2 Convert the PNG to XPM
If you use GimpShop or The GIMP, you can directly save your image as XPM. But for Photoshop users, you'll have to use ImageMagick's convert utility to convert your image to the format that GRUB uses (make sure the you have ImageMagick installed). To start converting, open your terminal and issue the following command:

Abstract The popularity of the WWW has made web traffic the fastest growing component of Internet traffic. Cashing and replication is becoming a most popular method to reduce Network traffic. While caching could efficiently reduce the network traffic, only replication could be helpful for reducing web server’s response latency and increasing document availability for most popular web sites, the replication of information across independent or coordinated Mirrored servers is becoming a common choice, and among various solutions, a distributed web server system is the most promising one. The distributed web server system becomes a most famous because user doesn’t need to do anything manually. The concept of load balancing is very simple one:” Spreading the work across the several machines”. Implementation of this idea is quit complex.An intuitive approach for load balancing among web servers is the IP-dispatcher approach. The main idea of this approach is to use a front-end dispatcher to…

Allowing an individual or group to use a piece of software. Nearly all applications are licensed rather than sold. There are a variety of different types of software licenses. Some are based on the number machines on which the licensed program can run whereas others are based on the number of users that can use the program. Most personal computer software licenses allow you to run the program on only one machine and to make copies of the software only for backup purposes. Some licenses also allow you to run the program on different computers as long as you don't use the copies simultaneously

Linux does everything that many users want it to, but some people have tasks that require Windows applications. You can dual-boot both operating systems, or run Windows in a virtualized environment on Linux. Alas, virtualization makes the guest OS almost useless for processor- and RAM-intensive tasks like editing videos and playing games. Now, a Ubuntu-based distro called andLinux takes cooperation with Windows to a whole new level. The miracle ingredient in andLinux is its coLinux kernel. The coLinux project takes a stable release of the Linux kernel and ports it to run on Windows. That means that, unlike virtualization software, andLinux installs on Windows like any other application. But there's more to andLinux than just sticking the coLinux kernel in a stock Ubuntu. According to Joachim Gehweiler, one of the developers of andLinux, the project also had to roll in the Xming X server and PulseAudio sound server and make sure these components work together.

It uses the Desktop(Live), Alternate(Install), or Server disc as a base, and then allows for user customization. For the Ubuntu Desktop base, you can customize the entire environment. For instance, you can add/remove software, change the default look (splash, themes, fonts, wallpaper, etc.), add desktop links, etc. For the Alternate and Server bases, you can add any additional software to the disc that you would like installed. Reconstructor is written in python and is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Find files named core in or below the directory /tmp and delete them, processing filenames in such a way that file or directory names containing single or double quotes, spaces or newlines are correctly handled. The -name test comes before the -type test in order to avoid having to call stat(2) on every file.

J2ee is a java core architecture.It is a famous technology for the enterprise application.Consider about j2ee there are lot of technology.JspejbServletJmsThese are the main technologies in J2ee.These are introduced by Sun micro system.There are lot of design patterns in j2ee.I,m familiar with MVC design pattern.Lot of application developed using MVC architecture.M-model, V-view, C-control .
jsp jsp is the main client side component in j2ee. There are two way to design jsp pages
ScripletsTag librariesScriplets Scriplet mean we can write java code in HTML page using <% %>,<%= %> tags. Using this pattern we can design very easily.But not efficient. Because if we are using scriplet code in jsp page.This code execute on the client side that is the reason. Tag libraries Tag Libraries mean we can write jsp page using tags.There are standard tag libraries in j2ee and we can define our own tag libraries.It is efficient war to developing jsp pages

there's a symbolic link in /usr/share/pixmaps/splash pointing to the ubuntu splash image.
Just recreate it pointing to YOUR png file like this:
Code: cd /usr/share/pixmaps/splash sudo mv path_to_your_splash.png ./mysplash.png sudo rm ubuntu-splash.png => we're just deleting a link, not the png sudo ln -s mysplash.png ubuntu-splash.png Done! Fast and easy!
To cancel changes, just delete the link again and rebuilt it pointing to the original png:
Compiz/Fusion is a 3D desktop environment for your Linux system. Its objective is to make the various elements that are visible on your computer look more physical. It aims to make your work less tiring and increase productivity through more natural visual perception. One way to do that is by placing the windows and icons on a three-dimensional looking cube, that can be rotated. Another way is to keep the windows or menus in motion after you move or expand them, sort of like a piece of paper floating on the desk. This makes is easier to track which window or menu has just been activated. Compiz/Fusion provides many settings and parameters to customize these effects, and the results depend each user's preferences and work habits. In my own experience I found that these features pretty much work as intended The wobbly behavior may seem unsettling at first, but after getting used to it, it does make for a less tiring work experience. In order to be able to use Compiz/Fusion in Ubuntu…
