gnome-keyring password ubuntu

After my latest setup of ubuntu 10.04, I was facing problem with the keyring password access whenever I was accessing yahoo on Empathy.

To change gnome-keyring password graphically

Places ==> Home Folder

then, ctrl+h to view the hidden files.

.gnome2 ==> keyrings

delete the the file default.keyring
next time when you’ll try anything like that, it’ll ask for new password.

To change gnome-keyring password for CLI
rm ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring

to keep backup of the original file
mv ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring.bak

synaptic/update manager update in ubuntu 10.04

Even if I’m trying to update with update manager or apt, synaptic is not updating. I faced this weired problem in ubuntu 10.04.
There is a very simple solution to get rid out of this problem.
Just execute this command in your terminal.

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

remove the line which contains CD/DVD ROM and the next line (if any, without starting with #)

update again with

sudo apt-get update

If you are no too unlucky you are already done with updating. enjoy 😀

Installation on ubuntu 10.04

extraxt .tar.gz file

sudo tar xvfz package.tar.gz -C /opt
x –> extract
v –> list what is extracting(verbose)
f –> specifies the file to use
z –> location for the file to be extracted(for optional packages, usually /opt is used)
