Install Adobe AIR in Ubuntu 17.04 at 64 bit

Posted by MD     Category: Informatica

Since I needed a program made in AIR, I had to work to find the way to install it on version 17.04 amd64.
First of all, you will need the installable dependencies by opening a terminal (ctrl + t) and copying:

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libxml2:i386 libxslt1.1:i386 libcanberra-gtk-module:i386 gtk2-engines-murrine:i386 libqt4-qt3support:i386 libgnome-keyring0:i386 libnss-mdns:i386 libnss3:i386 libxaw7 libnss3:i386 libnss-mdns:i386 libxt6:i386 libnspr4:i386

Now you have to create symbolic links for proper functioning:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

We now download a part of the program:

cd ~/Download
sudo mkdir /opt/adobe-air-sdk
sudo tar jxf AdobeAIRSDK.tbz2 -C /opt/adobe-air-sdk

We download the AIR SDK

sudo tar xvf adobe-air.tar.gz -C /opt/adobe-air-sdk
sudo chmod +x /opt/adobe-air-sdk/adobe-air/adobe-air

Now we are in place, now I’ll explain how to install any program with * .air extension
Obviously replace “NomePacchettoProgramma”(ProgramPartyName) end “NomeProgramma”(ProgramName) according to your needs !!

sudo mkdir /opt/adobe-air-sdk/NomeProgramma
sudo cp NomePacchettoProgramma.air /opt/adobe-air-sdk/NomeProgramma/
sudo mkdir /tmp/air
sudo cp NomePacchettoProgramma.air /tmp/air
cd /tmp/air
unzip /tmp/air/NomePacchettoProgramma.air
sudo cp /tmp/air /opt/adobe-air-sdk/NomeProgramma

Now let’s create a pitcher for the main menu (also replace “NomeEseguibile”(exec) and “iconaProgramma”(icon))

sudo su
cat << _EOF_ > /usr/share/applications/NomeProgramma.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Exec=/opt/adobe-air-sdk/adobe-air/adobe-air /opt/adobe-air-sdk/NomeProgramma/NomeEseguibile.air
Comment= quello che vuoi

chmod +x /usr/share/applications/NomeProgramma.desktop

Now just look in the “ProgramName” menu and you will start
Probably the additional settings that will create the program will be found in ~ /.appdata/ProgramName

See you soon. Bye

Guide to install and manage tor on ubuntu 4.16 without vidalia

Posted by MD     Category: Informatica

Hi, as I was accustomed to vidalia, I had to endeavor to better manage tor on the new version! But let’s take it easy, first of all we install tor, open the terminal with ctrl + t:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Now it will open a text editor, copy and paste the following line at the bottom:
deb xenial main
save and close the editor. Always on the terminal to:
gpg –keyserver –recv 886DDD89 gpg –export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add – sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install tor

then you have to install the proxy:

sudo apt-get install polipo

sudo gedit /etc/polipo/config

### Basic configuration
### *******************

# Uncomment one of these if you want to allow remote clients to
# connect:

# proxyAddress = "::0"        # both IPv4 and IPv6
# proxyAddress = ""    # IPv4 only

proxyAddress = ""
proxyPort = 8118

# If you do that, you'll want to restrict the set of hosts allowed to
# connect:

# allowedClients = ","
# allowedClients = ","

allowedClients =
allowedPorts = 1-65535

# Uncomment this if you want your Polipo to identify itself by
# something else than the host name:

proxyName = "localhost"

# Uncomment this if there's only one user using this instance of Polipo:

cacheIsShared = false

# Uncomment this if you want to use a parent proxy:

# parentProxy = ""

# Uncomment this if you want to use a parent SOCKS proxy:

socksParentProxy = "localhost:9050"
socksProxyType = socks5

Well now you have to configure:
sudo gedit /etc/default/tor

We’re going to put in place of RUN_DAEMON=”yes”


Now to prevent the automatic start giving:
sudo systemctl disable tor.service

sudo update-rc.d tor disable

sudo update-rc.d -f tor remove

Now restart your PC! To graphically manage the start-tor instead of vidalia I created a small program with gui Download it here

Put it in your home or wherever you like is important not to move it if you want that it does not require a password:

sudo gedit /etc/sudoers OR sudo visudo

basically enter:
YourName ALL= NOPASSWD: /home/YourName/

Here now right-click on in your home, click properties, permissions enable the execution! For firefox you should get “Proxy selector” by Michele Pezza, to manage the proxy now easily go on plugins, manage proxy , add and copy the following configurations:

Good surfing Tor 😉

Firefox 43 add-on plugins enable disabled for invalid signature

Posted by MD     Category: Informatica

Hi, with the latest update of Firefox we noticed that the unsigned add-ins are not activated and there is a button to activate them.
You are stuck with the plug-in written: “plugin name” is not verified for use in firefox. Proceed with caution.
To overcome this problem and continue to use our old add-ons (seprate you trust those not controlled by the Mozilla team), you need to write the address bar:
about: config
then press enter, consent (I promise I will pay attention) now in the search bar write:
now this parameter is defaulti “ true ” you will put one-click “ false
then restart firefox and you will have your add-ons working

Good firefox 😛

Convert directly from a link in firefox PDF

Posted by MD     Category: Informatica

Hi today I’ll show you how covertire a page you are viewing in firefox pdf, unlike the virtual printers will have a true conversion, that we will find a pdf editable, with lots of opportunity to make a copy and paste of texts written in it.
First you need to download my script from here:Download
Then move the file to where it suits you better (no longer have to delete it) and give it execute permissions (right-click> properties> permissions)!
Now go back to firefox and download the plugin that will allow you to call my script if necessary: :
Download version 5.4 (tested on firefox 29) alternativ:
Download latest version from the official site and install it.
Also in firefox go to: Tools> Add-ons> Open With; click Preferences, once open, click on add (bottom right), now a window will open dovre’re going to choose my script “convert-html-to-pdf” that you downloaded before!
Then close the add-ons and if there is no appearance this icon Icona estensione Open With right-click on the top bar of firefox (the one containing the address bar www) and click on customize: move the icon to where we please!
To create the pdf, page (site) you are viewing, just click the icon and click “convert-html-to-pdf” and your desktop trovere pdf 😉
This system is very useful and in addition to being able to copy text from the created PDF file generated weighs very little (based on pages that will save it is still lighter than pages printed from other programs to the virtual press)

Have a nice day and the next guide;)

Ultimate Guide 2013 Hack the Kobo Glo

Posted by MD     Category: Informatica, Senza categoria

Hello everyone today finally I managed to write this guide trying to be more complete and simple as possible!
For every trick I created a file so just download it and then follow the instructions!

0_ open the new global kobo or after factory reset ( hard reset = more light button pressed start button right to see red light , then release and wait for reset )

1_ Insert the usb port to pc then in kobo choose to: a_configurare via PC if after point 0_ or b_ to connect if the kobo is already configured (used )

2_ make a backup copy of the database , then copy the database with user unlocked KoboReader.sqlite in the folder / .kobo / KoboReader.sqlite PS : by doing so we will not have automatic updates

3_ safe removal kobo from the PC , and then disconnect the USB cable !

4_ will now ask you whether or not to publish on facebook (I put no) PS : The factory firmware is 2.1.2 of 31/08/2012

5_ Now update the firmware of our kobo to the stable version ” 2013Release – 2.8.1 – AuraHomeScreen + tastieraMigliore ” ( of 15/07/13 ) . Insert the USB socket on the PC and on the Kobo click ” Connect” ( the screen that comes up automatically ” discovered computer .”) Then copy the file ” KoboRoot.tgz ” inside the folder kobo / . Kobo ( on ubuntu ctrl + h to see hidden files ) PS : other firmware can be found in

6_ Do not unplug the Kobo but still copy the dictionaries that you will find in the compressed archive in / .kobo / dict /
safely remove the kobo , you will now see that you update ( as long as you let him do reboots )

7_ Reinsert the usb if you want to google NOT that you draw your own research and readings . Copy ” KoboRoot.tgz ” in / . Kobo /
safely disconnect and wait for the update

8_ Reinsert the usb if you want to add a handy menu that will allow you to launch applications in QT ( chess, checkers , notepad, calculator and others.) Copy the root directory ” launcher.png ” then copy ” KoboRoot.tgz ” in / . kobo /
safely disconnect and wait for the update.

9_ Reinsert the usb if you want to add ” kobotweaks -glo .” Copy ” KoboRoot.tgz ” in / . Kobo /
safely disconnect and wait for the update

10_ Put the usb if you want to add night function will reverse the long keypress light colors on e-ink screen ( the white becomes black and vice versa) . Very useful for reading in complete darkness ( less toil eyes ) Copy ” KoboRoot.tgz ” and ” nightmode.ini ” and ” kobotweaks.ini ” in / . kobo /

11_ For the geeks 😉 we enable telnet via wi -fi: Copy ” KoboRoot.tgz ” in / .kobo / .scollegare safely and wait for the update . Once restarted colleghiamoci the wi-fi network from the pc then in a terminal type ” telnet ipKOBO ”
to discover the ‘ ipKobo go to the menu of the kobo > Settings> Device Information

NOTE – 1: If instead you want to synchronize your library mondadori avoid steps and 1_ 5_ since the kobo you will update via wi-fi

NOTE – 2: If after updating the kobo as note 2 and you want to block the firmware version and inpedire updates and synchronization library mondadori Re-insert the usb , copy ” KoboRoot.tgz ” in / . Kobo / . Disconnect safely and wait for the update

NOTE -3 : You can change / modify the logo mondadori to the default of Kobo : enter / . Kobo / and edit the file ” affiliate.conf ” then replace ” Kobo ” to ” Mondadori ” ( = Kobo affiliate ) can be put other type “affiliate = fnac .”

NOTE-4: If you want you can open the kobo and replace the sd 2GB internal with another larger capacity, in October this guide will also

NOTE-5: To manage the libraries and add to your ebook kobo you can use the fantastic program called Calibre or use proprietary software Kobo Desktop

I hope this guide approaching many users as possible to the world of e-readers because remember that e-readers with e-ink screen do not tire and will not harm the view , it is as if we read on paper without cutting down trees and forests !

Good hack at all !!!

Hello to all,
as all lovers of books / ebooks I realized that the support from the ppa n-caliber Muench for ubuntu 4.12 is stopped while they are developing for the 12.10. In order to keep up to date caliber we arm ourselves with patience and follow these simple steps:
Download the following packages from the web (google is your friend):


Then from the terminal with “cd” you placed in the folder where you downloaded the packages,
now digit
dpkg -i –force-all *.deb

Well now we have to keep Calibre We add the ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/calibre -y

We will now modify the pope just added:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/n-muench-calibre-precise.list

Now we’re going to replace “precise” putting “quantal”

Posted by MD     Category: Informatica

Hello everyone today I propose un’estenzione nautilus that simplifies scanzione antivirus on linux.
You may wonder now what is a virus on linux:
a) To scanzionare files before transferring them on Windows (prevention)
b) For a hard-disk scanzionare infected (care)
The script created by me iterfaccia has a graphic that will follow you step by step before and during the scanzione.
The scanzione is based on ‘ClamAV antivirus for linux
If you do not have antivirus installed the script will propose the installation.

1) download the script from this link
2) Copy the script
(to view hidden folders use ctrl + h)
3) Give it execute permissions by right-clicking on the file, properties, permissions, select to run as a program.
4) Position yourself with your cursor on any folder or file by scanzionare, then right-click, scripts, scanzione-Antivirus

5) Now you will be asked to update the virus signature (recommended)

here is the window that appears when updating

6) Follow the graphical instructions and good scan

Thunderbird 8 —-> firetray-0.3.0-svn-r134M.xpi
(later update from add-ons otherwise does not go directly)
