When `ssh-add` does not work as expected because a ‘Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.’ error comes out, this might help:
There are environment variables that needs to be set and doing the command above will essentially do just that but with far lesser key strokes. It is also easier to remember since those archaic commands and environment variables that needs to be set always escape my mind.
If you are among the countless people using Eclipse IDE as your platform for software development on Ubuntu, then you may have noticed that it does not integrate at all into the global menu on Unity. Not a deal breaker actually, right. This does not even hamper you with your work at the least. I know it doesn’t for me.
However, if you are one of those who always strive for consistency on their Ubuntu desktop, then maybe this one bothers you a bit.
The 6th installment of the very successful Humble Indie Bundle (HIB) includes the acclaimed Adventure RPG (ARPG) Torchlight. Released back in 2009, this is the first part of the franchise from Runic Games. This particular game (well actually it was Torchlight 2, the sequel) has caught my eye, and interest, for the past month since it is being regularly mentioned in forums as one of the more anticipated ARPG games this year. Naturally when I saw it being offered on HIB I could not resist. I was curious what it had to offer, and to boot, it can run on Linux. If you run Ubuntu, all the more convenient because it can be installed directly from the Ubuntu Software Center (USC) after purchasing the bundle.
Have not posted for a while on this blog here. Blame it on work where more than half the time I’m forced to use Windows because we’re using MS SQL on a project. I can’t complain though. I’m learning new things. Which can only be good, right?
Assuming you already have Ruby, RubyGems and MySQL installed on your system, along with the necessary development files and tools for compiling, this may help you avoid a lot of confusing errors when you are trying to set up Webistrano.
I got stuck at the part – rake db:migrate. One error would come out after another, it was overwhelming for first timers like me.
Let us make it a happy and great one .. .
May more bugs be squashed. More innovations made (or copies made better). Prettier designs. Lastly, may Linux and Ubuntu have more new years to come.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This is going to sound like a paid review but it is not. In case you are in the market for a wireless mouse and you can’t decide which one to get, or you’re wondering if it will work for your Ubuntu-powered computer, well, this I can suggest – Logitech Wireless Mouse M325.
Originally I wanted this particular Logitech mouse, but sadly it is not available where I’m at.

On the day Steve Jobs passed away, the whole Internet was flooded with sentiments of his untimely demise. Everyone who has a Google+ account, a Facebook account, a Twitter account, or simply read news/blogs on the Internet knows about this.
It is not often that I stumble upon a website that uses Microsoft Silverlight. I am sure there are thousands of websites that use this technology. I am aware that Netflix uses Silverlight heavily. Still, I think it is safe to say, that Silverlight is not as commonly used as Adobe Flash. So what happens when I actually find my browser at a site that uses it?
Nothing happens. That is for sure.
