The other day I was doing some cleaning and came across some old Ubuntu & Kubuntu Disks. I can’t bring myself to throw them away since, they no longer do the disks and it reminds me of when I first discovered the world of Linux.

Installing Private internet access with OpenVPN on Ubuntu Server

I wanted to use a VPN on my ubuntu server, after googling I gathered a bunch of information from various sources. The following is a step by step guide of what I did. Hopefully it will will work for someone else as well.
install openvpn 
  1. sudo apt-get install openvpn
Download The Private Internet Access OpenVPN configuration files
  1. wget
Unzip the files
  1. unzip -d ~/openvpn
Move the files to the openvpn directory
  1. sudo mkdir /etc/openvpn/pia
  2. sudo mv ~/openvpn/* /etc/openvpn/pia/
Create a credentials file 
  1. sudo nano /etc/openvpn/auth.txt
on the first line enter your username
on the second line enter your password
Save the file and change permissions on it
  1. sudo chmod 400 /etc/openvpn/auth.txt
Copy the following 2 files to the openvpn directory
  1. sudo cp /etc/openvpn/pia/ca.rsa.2048.crt /etc/openvpn/ca.rsa.2048.crt
  2. sudo cp /etc/openvpn/pia/crl.rsa.2048.pem /etc/openvpn/crl.rsa.2048.pem
To have the vpn connect automatically on system startup copy the opvn file you wish to use to the openvpn directory changing it to a .config file.
  1. sudo sudo cp /etc/openvpn/pia/UK\ London /etc/openvpn/UKLondon.conf
Edit the config file 
  1. sudo nano /etc/openvpn/UKLondon.conf
Find the line that says
and change it to
auth-user-pass auth.txt
Test the connection by running the vpn
  1. cd /etc/openvpn
  2. sudo openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/UKLondon.conf
If all runs well reboot the system and check your ip address with the following command.
  1. wget -O - -q ; echo

Had to spend the morning downgrading back to firefox 42, Way too many issues happened with the update to 43, I think I’ll skip it for a while and try again later. This Guide is a bit older but it worked. I just downloaded 42 from here and adjusted the directions accordingly.

Download and Install Firefox Manually in Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) | Liberian Geek

Well, you can manually download and install Firefox like you would when using Windows. This allows you to upgrade to the latest version without waiting for Ubuntu to update first. Also, if you need to … Continue reading “Download and Install Firefox Manually in Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin)”

Had to install xubuntu on a new computer for my father in law last night, his old computer had some issues but he’s up and running again 😀 install ubuntu distro’s are so much nicer compared to dealing with windows, I’m very glad he’s happy with it.

So this past Sunday, the hardware that hosted my linode had a failure. When they were back online, I was still having issues. My Linode  was failing to boot. So  It was just the kick in the pants I needed.

I had been having issues for a while, getting random reboots and what not. So I ended up deleting my linode, and starting a new one on a different data center. Now I had been using webmin for a while, but this time I discovered virtualmin . I decided to install it. Man have I been missing out. It seriously made setting up my websites & email like 1000x easier.

Now after working at it all day, I have my websites back up and running from the backups, and have my mumble servers going again and this time Without the random reboots!! YAY!!!!

Naturally, on the list of tools to have, there were image editors. Now, I’ve worked with Linux before, and so I knew some of these already from a long time ago, like seriously – who doesn’t know about Gimp ? It’s not very far off from being the equivalent of Photoshop on Windows. (it works on Windows, too!)
