First install alien:

sudo apt-get install alien

 

Then, convert the rpm file to a deb file:

sudo alien --scripts -d sqldeveloper-3.2.10.09.57-1.noarch.rpm

 

Then we run the deb file generated

sudo dpkg -i sqldeveloper-3.2.10.09.57-1.noarch.deb

 

Create the following directory in your home folder, this where it's going to store path to the jdk in the next step:

mkdir .sqldeveloper/

 

Run sqldeveloper once from the terminal

sudo /opt/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper.sh

 

Enter the full path to Java 6

 

If you've got the openjdk, it'll be:

/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk

 

For the official one it'll be:

/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun

 

And that's SQL Developer on Ubuntu 12.04. From here on out, you can now run SQL Developer by clicking the icon in you application menu.

Type the full pathname of a J2SE installation (or Ctrl-C to quit), the path will be stored in ~/.sqldeveloper/jdk

/opt/sqldeveloper/jre        

Error: Java home /opt/sqldeveloper/jre/bin/java is not a J2SE SDK.

Running SQL Developer under a JRE is not supported.

 

If the Java VM specified by the SetJavaHome is actually a full J2SDK installation

then add 'SetSkipJ2SDKCheck true' to /opt/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin/sqldeveloper.conf

Install the Oracle JDK 6

 

Oracle themselves have the official guide to install their JDK - below is based upon those instructions.

 

Download the 32bit or 64bit Linux "compressed binary file" - it has a ".bin" file extension

Give it permissions to execute and extract it

 

chmod a+x [version]-linux-i586.bin

 

./[version]-linux-i586.bin

 

During installation it will ask you to register - press ENTER. Firefox will open with the registration page. Registration is optional.

 

JDK 6 package is extracted into ./jdk1.6.0_x directory, for example ./jdk1.6.0_30.

 

Lets rename it:

 

mv jdk1.6.0_30 java-6-oracle

Now move the JDK 6 directory to /usr/lib

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/jvm

 

sudo mv java-6-oracle /usr/lib/jvm

 

witch to Oracle JDK 6

 

webupd8.googlecode.com hosts a nice-easy script to help with this.

 

wget http://webupd8.googlecode.com/files/update-java-0.5b

chmod +x update-java-0.5b

sudo ./update-java-0.5b

don't worry - 0.5b refers to the script version - not the version of java!

 

An alternative to this is to use the webupd8 ppa and the update-java package.

 

enter image description here

 

Finally test the switch has been successful:

 

java -version

javac -version

These should display the oracle version installed - 1.6.0_30

 

Install the Firefox/Chrome plugin

In a terminal:

 

mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins

Remove the IcedTea plugin, if it has been installed.

 

sudo apt-get remove icedtea6-plugin

Remove a former version of the Java plugin (may or may not be present)

 

rm ~/.mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so

Now you can install the plugin, by creating a symbolic link (you tell Firefox, where the plugin is located).

 

(32bit)

 

ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-oracle/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

(64bit)

 

ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-oracle/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

Confirm that the JRE has been successful by using the official oracle website.

Change Unity 2D configuration files

The configuration files are located under /usr/share/unity-2d/shell. You will need sudo to edit the files contained therein. You should also create a backup of all the files before making any changes. The simplest way to backup would be:

tar cvfz ~/Documents/unity-2d-shell-backup.tar.gz

/usr/share/unity-2d/shell/*

Now, you can proceed to edit the files in any text editor. The paths listed below are all relative to the Unity 2D shell path above.

Shell.qml, change:

width: 65 to width: 50

common/IconTile.qml, change:

sourceSize.width: 48 to sourceSize.width: 32

sourceSize.height: 48 to sourceSize.height: 32

launcher/LauncherList.qml, change:

property int tileSize: 54 to property int tileSize: 38

property int selectionOutlineSize: 65 to

property int selectionOutlineSize: 50

That would be all. Logout, log back in.



 

How do I know I'm running Unity 2D?

This is a good question and probably merits a separate article. In general, on AskUbuntu, they tell you to look for various visual clues. The Launcher icons and right-click text have no transparency, there's no shadow under the menu and such. For me, the simplest way to distinguish between sessions is to look for unity-2d string in the process table, which then indicates I'm either running the 2D version or not.https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/wrsF8hyLOSDuisH9WmbOcwV6YDhxxGxTBR_f59JGpCvv1Ak5ZewZEMqQFzgT6bvCvngNOE-nJ8QFUK6xDFZPOQXksOjDz---DUaFw4n3Q5O3P6ElCIsvQEM

Cleaning & Resizing Drives

Cleaning up of partial package:

sudo apt-get autoclean

Cleaning up of the apt cache:

sudo apt-get clean

Cleaning up of any unused dependencies:

sudo apt-get autoremove

A good practice to avoid any left behind is to use the autoremove command whenever you want to uninstall an application.

sudo apt-get autoremove application-name


 

Install fslint, or via the terminal:

sudo apt-get install fslint

Go to Applications-> System Tools-> FSlint. Add the file path that you want to search. On the left, click on the Duplicate tab and click Find at the bottom.https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/UK0G5V91rzJscl9pPmz0xOV5N9xhBagx7sj5rz3PJM-cZMxMdba3PK5NZDlTAYg-KgPzRrHulhkLandBpB-ULRFIyaU5xNn-dmQMpFnRA9bMlPgPQDr_nLg

VBOX Configuration Settings

 

 

  • General
  • Basic
  • Unique name
  • OS – Linux
  • Match the correct flavor – Ubuntu

  • Clipboard – bidirectional
  • Removable Media – whatever you prefer
  • Mini ToolBar – whatever you prefer
  • Description – whatever you prefer
  • System
  • Motherboard
  • Base memory – 768 to 3.5 GB depending on your desires. Always leave at least 1GB for the hostOS
  • Chipset – ICH9 this is important
  • Extended Features
  • Check – Enable IO APIC (absolutely critical)
  • Uncheck – Enable EFI this is important
  • Check – HW Clock in UTC
  • Check – Enable absolute Pointing device
  1. Processor
  1. 1 CPU; never allocate more CPU than you need. 2 vCPUs would be a max for a desktop VM and only if you have 3 or more physical Cores.
  2. Execution Cap: 100%
  3. Check – Enable PAE/NX
  1. Acceleration
  1. Check – Enable VT-x/AMD-v (this must be supported by theCPU, MB and enabled in the BIOS)

  • Cable Connected – checked
  1. Adapter 2, 3, 4 … unused unless you are expert.
  1. Serial – I’ve never used these at all, ever.
  2. USB – Not covered here. Until the Guest Additions are installed, doesn’t matter anyway.
  3. Shared Folders – I use this all the time, but not when making a fresh VM.



 

Ok, there you have it. The VBox settings for the best performance. Hopefully, the VirtualBox team hasn’t Changed too many names for these settings in the newer versions.

No Unity

Connect the Ubuntu ISO to the CDROM in Storage and start the install. Since we disabled the GPU advanced 2D and 3D acceleration, Unity should not install. This is good. Unity 2D might, which is fine. It doesn’t seem to cause as many issues.

Guest Addition Dependencies

After the OS install, a few things are needed to make VBox nicer. Mainly theGuest Additions.

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential dkms

One of three kernel header packages is required. Run

$ uname -r

and based on the returned string, install one of these:

{}-generic-pae = apt-get install linux-headers-generic-pae
{}-generic = apt-get install linux-headers-generic
{}-server = apt-get install linux-headers-server

Important: Reinstalling Guest Additions must be performed manually if DKMSdoesn’t handle it automatically after a new kernel is installed.

Do not use kernel-version specific versions. You want one of the listed choices above so your system will automatically manage updates with every new kernel.

Mount and Install Guest Additions

In the “machine menu”, Select the Devices menu, then Install Guest Additions. For Linux, this just makes the device available. In Ubuntu, the device should be auto-mounted under /media/. Open in File Manager dialog will probably be displayed. It doesn’t matter to me if you use this or not.

  1. Open a terminal
  2. $ cd /media/VB*

  3. $ sudo sh ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

If there are any errors in this last step, look at the log file and resolve them. Reboot the VM to have the guest additions start working. The main thing these addons provide is nicer mouse integration, better video performance and resizing of the VM window. It really is worth the hassle for any GUI VM. For servers, I don’t usually bother as the mouse and video don’t matter at all.

Now your VM should work with about 95% of native performance. I wouldn’t bother using VirtualBox with any CPU less than a Core 2 Duo or any amount ofRAM less than 2GB. It just isn’t worth it.

 


 

Java for Linux Platforms

 

The instructions below are for installing version Java 7 Update 7 (7u7). If you are installing another version, make sure you change the version number appropriately when you type the commands at the terminal. Example: For Java 6u35 replace 7u7 with 6u35. Note that, as in the preceding example, the version number is sometimes preceded with the letter u, and sometimes it is preceded with an underbar, for example, jre1.7.0_07.

 

Change to the directory in which you want to install. Type:

cd <directory path name>

For example, to install the software in the /usr/java/ directory, Type:

cd /usr/java/

 

Note about root access: To install Java in a system-wide location such as /usr/local, you must login as the root user to gain the necessary permissions. If you do not have root access, install the Java in your home directory or a sub directory for which you have write permissions

Move the .tar.gz archive binary to the current directory.

Unpack the tarball and install Java

tar zxvf jre-7u7-linux-i586.tar.gz

 

The Java files are installed in a directory called jre1.7.0_07 in the current directory.

In this example, it is installed in the /usr/java/jre1.7.0_07 directory.

Delete the .tar.gz file if you want to save disk space.

------------------------

Enable and Configure

 

Firefox or Mozilla

To configure the Java Plugin follow these steps:

 

Exit Firefox browser if it is already running.

Uninstall any previous installations of Java Plugin.

Only one Java Plugin can be used at a time. When you want to use a different plugin, or version of a plugin, remove the symbolic links to any other versions and create a fresh symbolic link to the new one.

Create a symbolic link to the libnpjp2.so file in the browser plugins directory

Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Firefox installation directory

cd <Firefox installation directory>/plugins

Create plugins directory if it does not exist.

Create the symbolic link

ln -s <Java installation directory>/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

 

Note: If you are upgrading your Java version then before creating new symbolic link you should remove old symbolic link to enable latest downloaded Java.

 

To remove old symbolic link:

type cd <Firefox installation directory>/plugins

rm libjavaplugin_oji.so

Example

If Firefox is installed at this directory:

/usr/lib/<Firefox installation directory>

And if the Java is installed at this directory:

/usr/java/<Java installation directory>

Then type in the terminal window to go to the browser plug-in directory:

/usr/lib/<Firefox installation directory>/plugins

Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser.

ln -s /usr/java/<Java installation directory>/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

 

Start the Firefox browser, or restart it if it is already up.

 

In Firefox, type about:plugins in the Location bar to confirm that the Java Plugin is loaded. You can also click the Tools menu to confirm that Java Console is there.

 

Mounting Drives

 

Using mount

Get the Information

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/ibKKHCfihYCvSzP0YUXyv0yHm1nbMmxRYZOvW0Kj1EzfLJoDQtt7Ak8G7b4YwTzbK7vQ2SGsStyLBv0tlJfpmtJihHjTg2ZTx728MPDZCfO3sMYI1Rs4p6k*

Sometimes devices don't automount, in which case you should try to manually mount it. First, you must know what device we are dealing with and what filesystem it is formatted with. Most flash drives are FAT16 or FAT32 and most external hard disks are NTFS.

sudo fdisk -l

Find your device in the list, it is probably something like /dev/sdb1. For more information about filesystems, see LinuxFilesystemsExplained.

Create the Mount Point

Now we need to create a mount point for the device, let's say we want to call it "external". You can call it whatever you want, just please don't use spaces in the name or it gets a little more complicated - use an underscore to separate words (like "my_external"). Create the mount point:

sudo mkdir /media/external

Mount the Drive

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/rKTRle00yHQ7HWdRGx9IBBccGeY-XQuri8jXwhxvDdBYp-VLfT4MZaKI8YjxSTgljLIOKb2uQLFycaVx1k_CYYgmUe7hFb1FYrJuDwLCWIgvHOkN9StVzxg*

We can now mount the drive. Let's say the device is /dev/sdb1, the filesystem is FAT16 or FAT32 (like it is for most USB flash drives), and we want to mount it at /media/external (having already created the mount point):

sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/external -o uid=1000,gid=1000,utf8,dmask=027,fmask=137

The options following the "-o" allow your user to have ownership of the drive, and the masks allow for extra security for file system permissions. If you don't use those extra options you may not be able to read and write the drive with your regular username.

Otherwise if the device is formatted with NTFS, run:

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/external

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/fvpXP7qq0UomxJ5VC7jcXSZyldX_vkhEC_SG6-j8-qXOopkzwTTgw3nkm1aVWHP0Oc1gT-pvtnYAFemqyyJLilJ_U71Uncph4Lk8l_5u4UP78m088BxiGiI*

 

You must have the ntfs-3g driver installed. See MountingWindowsPartitions for more information.

 

Unmounting the Drive

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/icoL2er21-hkR4FOni3RQAIgIsrX7C5JtSt2WWMHYHHvN-IXK3bOAZ6k2PT87xaQMlcLNOqWxEstv24olmOxDCj7jNzcRr5BgWo_QSr9MBrUGuuwZj0lq1s*

When you are finished with the device, don't forget to unmount the drive before disconnecting it. Assuming /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/external, you can either unmount using the device or the mount point:

sudo umount /dev/sdb1

or:

sudo umount /media/external

You cannot unmount from the desktop by right clicking the icon if the drive was manually mounted.

Using pmount

There is a program called pmount available in the repositories which allows unprivileged users to mount drives as if they were using sudo, even without an entry in /etc/fstab. This is perfect for computers that have users without RootSudo access, like public terminals or thin clients.

pmount can be used with the same syntax as mount (but without sudo), or quite simply as follows:

pmount <device> [ label ]

Example:

  • pmount /dev/sdb1 flash_drive
  • This will mount the device /dev/sdb1 at /media/flash_drive

If you leave off the label option, it will mount by default at /media/device

Network Configuration Issues

 

Found it! "To resolve this, all you need is to remove all other interface except lo from /etc/network/interfaces


sudo cat /etc/network/interfaces

 

#working config

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback


sudo cat /etc/network/interfaces

#previous non-working config

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0

iface eth0 inet manual

 

Once you are done with necessary changes:

restart network-manager

sudo service network-manager restart
