Getting active again

Its been quite some time since I posted anything on the blog.  Well, I have been quite busy with projects and exams etc. But, now I am getting back in action. You are going to see a lot of posts in the coming days.


Most of you would know that gnome terminal supports transparent background as well as a custom background image. I keep on changing the background, that gives a better feel to the terminal experience…. Enough of crap, lets get to the point. What I did was to have both a fancy background image along with transparency in the gnome terminal. As you can see it looks good (at least to me…).

At first, it seemed to be a difficult task, but then, i noticed, gnome terminal supports PNG images as background…and that solves the problem. What all you need is a image manipulation program like gimp (GNU Image Manipulation Program). Just open your favorite image with it, add transparency layers to it and save it as a PNG image (because usual formats like JPEG do not support transparency).

Now, all you got to do is go to edit -> profile preferences -> background and choose background image as the one you just saved. That’s all you gotta do.

Hello geeks….

Hi, geeks.  As you might have figured by the name, this is a place where I will be posting my hands on experience with my computer system, the ways I figured to get around things, and the ways I figured to make things worse. Isn’t that the sign of a geek…to make things bad, your system does not boot or your data becomes corrupt, and then you bash your head into your computer screen to put things right. I am sure many of you would already know those things, but I hope my posts will help many others. Well, enough of nonsense bragging…see ya on the next post.
