Automate your login process in browser at IIT Rajasthan GPRA Campus

If you find the Watch Guard login screen annoying each time you open your browser, then use a script to automate the process.

Only for Google Chrome and Firefox. If you want me to post for some other browser write it in comments.

Download the script

DON'T download the file by Left-Clicking on it. If you did browser will ask you to install it, but before that we'd need to change some parameters.

So Right click on the link and Click Save link as:  IITJ_LogIn

Must have Firefox Add-ons for Students

There are hell lot of add-ons available on the web.Its difficult to find useful ones. Here I have compiled a list of some useful add-ons for Firefox. I am a student and I have found them to be a very useful for both studies and fun.

1. Read It Later

This is one of the coolest plug-in for studies. On many occasions we need to save pages for reading later and we don't want to bookmark every one of those pages. It makes the bookmark area crowded and you may not be needing these pages later. So by using this add-on you can make a list and read it off-line as well as online. It also let you create a account with a click of a button and then you can access your list from anywhere. And it is Free!!. You can install it just by clicking on the link given below.

Install: Click here to Install ReadItLater

Having a Proxy Trouble In Ubuntu Terminal (1 step solution)

We all have some proxy issues in our college and we do all sort of things to set it right. Recently I faced a bizarre problem of not being able to get rid of my proxy settings in Ubuntu terminal.

I reset it, at all places I knew to set proxy but still each time when I started my terminal, it automatically started connecting to proxy server.

The problem was that i was not able to reset the environment variables. You can check it by typing following in terminal:

set | grep proxy


echo $http_proxy

It will show you if you have any value set to your proxy variable.

Run any set of commands while launching Terminal

Many times we want some default set of commands to run in terminal whenever we start a new instance of it and there's a way to avoid typing the commands every time you login......
All you need is to add the commands in ~/.bashrc Configuration file.

I have taken the example of printing some message but you can almost write any command and make it run.
