Games for Linux - Lugaru HD

Do you love playing games? If you are using Linux you might have been feeling bad about the scarcity of nice games in Linux. Well, here's a nice game for you! It's Lugaru, a game about a rabbit with combat skills.
Lugaru is the first commercial game by Wolfire Games. Lugaru's main
character is Turner, an anthropomorphic rabbit with curiously well developed
combat skills. After seeing his family and friends murdered by wolf raiders he
embarks on a quest of revenge, only to uncover a deeper plot that threatens the
entire island. Using a wide variety of intuitive combat techniques, the player
combats wolves and hostile rabbits across three different landscapes
(grasslands, snow, desert). The game was released for Linux on August 26, 2005.

The game has two modes: story mode and challenges mode. In the story mode you    will play as Turner to avenge his family and friends. In the challenges mode you will have 14 challenges. It involves the player progressing through a series of fourteen maps with the goal of clearing them of all hostile creaturesThe game has decent graphics but the story is really short.

The default game controls are :

Left shift
Left mouse button (LMB)

Some special key combinations allow you to perform special attacks:
Jump higher
Rabbit kick
W + LMB ( When enemy is near)
Shift (When enemy is near)
Reverse enemy attack

After defeating an enemy, if he has a weapon like a knife or bo staff or sword you can pick it up b pressing 'Q' . The knife can be thrown by pressing 'Q'  and a character can carry two of them, but it is the weakest weapon of the three. The sword is very powerful and fast, but it is hard to find and incredibly easy to disarm. The staff is the strongest of the three, and can easily kill an enemy when it is down. However, the staff can break and can easily be reversed.

Lugaru also has a number of mods made by the many fans of the game. You can choose to download the "Lugaru Downloader" which gives you a list of all the Fan-made mods so far. Lugaru Downloader also extracts and backs up the files and installs the mod automatically, rather than forcing users to back up files themselves and risk errors and glitches.

Most of you who have a Huawei USB modem (data card) might have tried to install mobile partner (dash board) in Linux. Here I will show you how to install mobile partner in Linux. First, you have to copy the folder called Linux in the data card. The files in the data card are not accessible from Linux so copy them from Windows. Now right click the file “install” in the “Linux” folder. Go to the permissions tab and select the check box beside Allow executing as a program. Now open a terminal by pressing CTRL + ALT + Tkeys. Change the working directory to the folder “Linux” by using “cd <path to folder>”. Now type ./install. If you had installed this software in your system before, you will get a prompt: "The software is exist, do you want overwrites? ([Y]/[N])", enter "y" to overwrites or "n" to exit. If you do not had installed this software in your system before, you will get a prompt: "Please input the install path[/usr/local/Mobile_Partner]:"…

How to setup a wifi-hotspot in Ubuntu: The terminal way.

Ubuntu has a "Use as hotspot" mode. But it creates a n ad-hoc network only.Wireless hotspots aren't same as ad hoc networks. Significant difference is there. In short, ad hoc networks aren't supported in most Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry devices (and may be iOS devices too) whereas AP mode Wi-Fi hotspots are.

              It is really simple and easy to setup a hotspot in Ubuntu. We use a tool called ap-hotspot. To install it open a terminal and type the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ap-hotspot
             Next, to start the hotspot type the following in a terminal:
sudo ap-hotspot start
It asks you which adapter's internet you want to share, name of the network, password, etc. in an interactive manner. To stop the hotspot type the following n the terminal :
sudo ap-hotspot stop
To configure it type the following in the terminal :
sudo ap-hotspot configure

Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/) is another process using it?

Some times we get the following error while trying yo install software using apt-get or synaptic packaging manager.
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/) is another process using it?

How can we resolve this?
The problem occurs if we are running another applications like synaptic using the directory. So, if this is the case close the applications and try run the command again.
You will also get this message if you forget to use  sudo  when executing an apt command. You can use sudo lsof /var/lib/dpkg/lock to find the process that owns the lock file Then try to kill the process to remove the lock.
This should be used as last resort. If you use this carelessly you can end up with a broken system.
You can delete the lock file with the following command:
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock

You may also need to delete the lock file in the cache directory.
