Oracle Java 64 bits

Oracle Java isn’t pre-installed in Ubuntu. The installation tutorial in Oracle website is quite confusing. Even though there is a ppa which is supposed to install it without much of a hassle, not all distros support ppa.

The script is meant to work in machines without any version of Java installed.

So, if you need to install it and can’t use a ppa, you may find this script useful.



USB Wireless realtek-8811cu linux driver

I have recently upgraded my home internet and bought a usb 5G adapter, so I can access the 5 Gigahertz wifi network, which is much faster.

The site promised it was Linux compatible, but the drivers the vendor sent me were useless. I couldn’t make sense of the instructions…

So I had to search for a solution on the web. And I found it here.

Since I had to install it on multiple computers, I wrote this script to install it smoothly. Enjoy!



Great app to edit pdfs

PDF Editor

According to its official site: PDFeditor is a free open source pdf editor and a library for manipulating PDF documents, released under terms of GNU GPL version 2. It includes PDF manipulating library based on xpdf, GUI, set of command line tools and a pdf editor.

In my modest opinion, it’s a great open-source alternative to Master PDF Editor.

Due to dependency issues, it’s not possible to install it by just downloading the debian pack.
So I gathered all the necessary debian files and made it fast and easy to install it.
Just click here.
