Ubuntu Live Usb Creator-


The easiest way to put Ubuntu onto a USB drive is to use the built-in “Startup Disk Creator” tool, officially known as the Ubuntu Live USB creator. It’s also the easiest  to use - just take an Ubuntu-based ISO or IMG (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and so on), insert a flash drive, and start.Ubuntu Live USB Creator is pre-installed on most Ubuntu installations. If you don’t have it, use the usb-creator-gtk or usb-
creator-kde, depending on your desktop environment.

Universal Usb Installer


If you have a Windows machine, but want to make the switch to a Linux operating system, you may want to try’s Universal USB Installer. It’s suggested by Canonical for Windows and Mac users on the Ubuntu download page, and for good reason. It supports over eighty operating systems (including well-known Linux distributions like Ubuntu, lesser known ones like Peppermint Linux,system rescue tools like Acronis Rescue CD, and even the Windows 7
install CD).

Linux Live Usb Creator


A similar tool to help Windows users transition to Linux is LinuxLive USB Creator, sometimes abbreviated LiLi. It’s advertised for “both beginners and geeks”, with advanced features packaged for even the most novice users. Its wide feature set includes persistence, automatic updates, automatic downloads of your chosen ISO, and a wide list of supported operating systems. Its most unique feature is support for VirtualBox; it installs a portable version of the popular virtualization software so that you can run your chosen operating system within Windows.

LiveUSB Install


LiveUSB Install is a project created by the developers of the USU Linux distro, derivative of Ubuntu. Unlike most of the others on this list, it supports both Windows and Linux - so Ubuntu users who want to try out new derivatives can do so with ease. It supports standard features like persistence and automatic downloads. What sets it apart is its compatibility - it officially supports over 100 distributions and should work with many more.



One of the more mature programs on this list, UNetbootin is one of the older Live USB installers. It’s completely cross-platform (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux are all supported as hosts) and supports a decent number of disks (though not quite as many as some of the others). One of its most unique features is its hard drive
install - if you want to install a distribution, don’t have a USB drive,and don’t want to burn a CD, you can use UNetbootin to create a frugal install.
Well, open source is not about just softwares and operating systems and some technical stuffs, here are some music sites where you can listen music freely.

  • GratisVibes ,The website “aims to lead readers to the best of  free or Creative Commons licensed Electronic Music on the web, spreading the word for greater musical freedom for both artists and listeners alike.”
  • ccMixter, is a community music site featuring remixes licensed under Creative Commons where you can listen to, sample, mash-up, or interact with music in whatever way you want.

I want to thank "Mike Wiseguy" for intorducing me this project-

Launch Synaptic Package Manager.

Search for the packages which you want to install and mark them for installation.Synaptic might also ask for installation of other packages as dependencies.Confirm them.

Do not press Apply button.

Go to the 'File' menu on synaptic window and click on the "Generate Package Download Script".This will open a new window asking you to save your file.

The file is a text file which can be executed as a shell script on linux machines.
If you do not intend to use the generated .txt extension.

In case you want to use it on another linux machine, you can use the .sh extension.For the sake of convenience , you can save your file {(package-name).sh} in your home directory.

If you run this script on a Linux machine with an internet connection, it will download the required set of packages.

However, let us assume that you are using a windows based machine and still want to use the generated file.To understand the procedure, here is the thing-

  • The file is basically a shell script file, all it does is to call the 'wget program which can be used to perform HTTP downloads.
  • The generated script file simply calls the wget program with the address of packages.
  • If you open your script file with any text editor, you will see the commands and the URLs of the package to be downloaded.
  • Now, all you have to do is to go the nearest cyber cafe or a friend's home with an internet connection and download the packages whose urls are mentioned in the script file (Remove the "wget -c" from  start).
Once you have downloaded the packages, all you have to do is to save them all in the same directory and put them on the same machine and launch Synaptic again.

Now, go to File->Add Download Packages.

This will open a new window where you have to select that directoy where you have placed all your .DEB files.

**Remember that you cannot select individual .DEB files in the selection window.

Synaptic will automatically install all of them and there you have it!!!

The software is installed!!!

This is what wiki page says about quickly-

"Given the richness and variety of the Linux platform, programming on Linux should be easy and fun.
However, it's not easy and fun because it is too hard to learn.
It is too hard to learn because there are too many choices, and too much information to wade through.
Quickly strives to make programming easy and fun by bringing opinionated choices about how to write different kinds of programs to developers."

prerequisite knowledge before working on quickly-

1. python language  -- Download this book !!!!
2. aware of Glade

*After installation of quickly, run "quickly tutorial" after cd into your application name.There is a documentation about- glade, pyGtk etc...


Open your terminal and write-

$sudo apt-get install quickly

*These commands are for the natty version, there is some difference in commands if you have older version.


$quickly create ubuntu-application MyFirst


*MyFirst is the name of application.

After this cd into your newly created application.

cd MyFirst

Now you can run quickly by this command:-

quickly run

Now, you have to do some changes in design, for this write this in your terminal-

quickly design or quickly glade (for lower versions)
