Mount TrueCrypt Volume with Read and Write File Permission for Users and Groups

Hi friends,

I have been working on Ubuntu from a long time. Recently I am exploring on TrueCrypt and I faced the following issue. After searching lot of websites and forums, I made a solution which worked for me perfectly.

TrueCrypt volume copied data should be available to all when its mounted.

Usual Procedure:
Mount the TrueCrypt volume in Ubuntu
Copy some data to the volume
Change file permissions to other users or groups
Other users should be able to view the data from the volume when mounted

After mounting the TrueCrypt Volume the directory permissions are changed and fixed to 700 (rwx --- ---). i.e. No access to groups and others.
Changing the directory permissions and changing the ownership will not be applied.
So, other groups and others cannot access the data.

While mouting the TrueCrypt volume we need to specify the file system type and give permission to user[s] and/or group[s] with umask.

Please find the syntax and example below

$sudo /usr/bin/truecrypt -t --filesystem={filesystem_type} --fs-options={rwx},uid={userid},gid={groupid},umask={ugorwx} {your_tc_volume} {mounting_folder}

$sudo /usr/bin/truecrypt -t --filesystem=vfat --fs-options=rw,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=022 /mnt/folder1

Display Flash SWF Object File in Max Width and Height of Browser (Autofit)

Hi coders,

Today I have come across a situation where I need to display some .swf file in browser by using 100% browser width and height irrespective of the screen resolution. Generally we will specify the object width and height while display the flash on browser.

But I want the flash content to get display in maximum (full) width and height of the browser to any screen resolution. i.e. Automatically it has to adjust the width and height of the flash object.

I have found the following method
  • Please download the swffit from here 
  • It has lot of custome functions which developers can use
  • After downloading the zip file, please extract the content
  • You can find lot of sample codes
  • I have used example.html code and changed the fit method to 
    •"my_flash", 1, 1, null, null, true, true);
  • Now it will display the flash object in maximum width and height of the browser
Enjoy coding :)

Windows 8 Installation, Kaspersky Anti-Virus Issue and resolved


After a big gap, I am writing this post.

Today, I have upgraded my sister's laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro by purchasing online for just Rs. 1999/-. Its cool, I am liking the Windows 8 look and feel (Metro interface). I have created ISO image for backup.

But I got a problem with the KasperSky anti-virus. The version which I installed in Windows 7 doesn't support in Windows 8. While uninstalling from Windows 8, it was not successfully uninstalled.

So, I removed it from registry and corresponding folders in file explorer. It was suddenly not recognizing the trackpad and even mouse. So, using USB flash drive, I had burned ISO to a USB Pendrive and booted from it. Refreshed the OS.

You know what, all the installed apps were gone. It moved to a folder named Windows.old(>10GB). I decided to delete it. So, I performed "cleanmgr" and deleted the old windows folder Windows.old. Finally I have installed all the required softwares.

The apps from Windows store are ok. But not many apps ( I know still lot of apps will come). I liked the Wikimedia, Photofunia, ToDo, Tasklists, Engadget, etc.

Overall weekend spent on Installing Windows 8 and corresponding software updates.

Note: Please uninstall the anti-virus before you upgrading to Windows 8.

Digital Cameras in the Budget Range

Hi everyone,

I am posting this one related to digital cameras.

In India most of the users wants the camera just for occasional purpose.

Example: For outing, Home functions etc.

For those basic needs, we can have a budget camera.

These are my opinion on the current cameras in Nikon, Canon and Sony

I think these are best cameras in mid range ..

Below Rs. 5000

Nikon Coolpix L23

Canon Powershot A1200

Below Rs. 6000

Nikon Coolpix L26

Canon A3200 IS

Sony W520

I decided the camera based on the resolution (megapixel) and optical zoom. I don't to go in-depth in deciding the basic camera.

Live CD Ubuntu Customization Kit (UCK) without Internet

Hi friends,

As many of you know that, UCK (Ubuntu Customization Kit) requires Internet when customizing the Live CD.

Why we need Internet while customization?

  • To get the updates from the repositories we need the internet.
  • To install any software using apt-get/synaptic package manager.
Do we need Internet all the time?

According to me, We may not need the Internet for small updates.
So, I have modified the customization scripts to work without Internet.


Please download the following files.

According the ubuntu distro, we need to get the sources.gz from the link$DISTRO_CODENAME/main/source/Sources.gz


Please place these two files in ~/Softwares/UCK/ directory

Note: ~ is home directory of the user.

Apply Patches

If you installed UCK, you will having the /usr/lib/uck/customization-profiles/localized_cd/ directory
In that directory, you will be having customize and customize_iso scripts.

Those two scripts will be copies to /home//tmp folder while running the UCK.

So, please apply the following patches in /usr/lib/uck/customization-profiles/localized_cd/ 

Now apply the patch as shown below

$ patch -u customize customize.patch
$ patch -u customize_iso customize_iso.patch

Create and Apply Patch file in Linux using Diff command

Hi friends,

When I was updating one file, I have taken backup as filename_old.

After updating (adding and removing line) the current file, I thought let me see what are all the updates I have done to the current file. Then I thought, there is a concept call patch file.

Then I decided to create the patch file.

I have searched and surprised that "diff" command is able to do that.

Forgot your Windows password; Login without password using Kon-Boot Utility

Hi friends,

I am in a confusion whether to put this information in my blog or not. Because it can be used for both good and bad cause.

Promise me that, you will use it for good cause.

Backup files:

Whenever you forgot the admin password in Windows [XP, Vista, 7] any version, you can take backup of your files by using any of the Live CD/DVDs [Ex: Ubuntu Live CD, Which I always prefer to use].

Bypass Authentication:

Without using the Live CD/DVD and if you wants to login to your computer there is a possibility but for limited Operating Systems by using Kon-Boot.

As per Kon-boot free version, it will support only 32-bit edition operating systems (Windows XP,  Vista, Server 2003/08).

The free version doesn't support 64-bit versions and Windows 7 (32bit/64bit).

  1. Download the free version of Kon-Boot utility from here
  2. Direct Link:
  3. Extract the zip file with the password kon-boot
  4. Extract the CD-konboot-v1.1-2in1 zip file
  5. Open the CD-konboot-v1.1-2in1 folder
  6. You will find the CD-konboot-v1.1-2in1.iso
  7. Make your Pendrive as bootable with this iso (or) burn the iso to a CD
  8. To make your pendrive as a bootable disk, please follow any one of the methods
  9. You can use the utilities unetbootin or any bootable utility for pendrive
  10. Follow this link for more details
  11. Boot to your pendrive by adjusting the BIOS boot order settings or One time boot menu at the boot time
  12. It will show you the Kon-Boot screen
  13. Press any key to get out of the starting screen of Kon-Boot
  14. Now it will show you the Kryptos Logic Screen
  15. It will automatically bypasses the existing operating system
  16. In my system, it automatically booted to the harddisk partition
  17. If not, you please select the desired partition to boot for the next time
  18. Thats it, now you without entering the password you can login into your system
Note: Kon-Boot will not erases the password of your operating system. It just bypasses the OS authentication.

Java Virtual Machine (JVM) vs Kilobyte Virtual Machine (KVM) vs Dalvik Virtual Machine (DVM)

Hi friends,

Do you that the java program, when running on different architectures, it runs on different virtual machine (VM)?

Why it need different VM when running the similar syntactical code?

Let me take the opportunity to share and explain what I have gone through

I have been read about 3 main VMs.

Java Virtual Machine
Kilobyte Virtual Machine
Dalvik Virtual Machine

Java Virtual Machine:
JVM executes Java .class bytecode to run the Java applications. JVM with set of libraries form a JRE, which is installed on computer to execute any Java program.

Kilobyte Virtual Machine:
Java API contains large set of standard libraries. To use the same no.of libraries in Mobile is not possible due to memory constraint in the mobile. So, they have come up with an idea to take a subset of libraries and form a profile in Java 2 Platform Micro Edition (J2ME). So JVM is replaced with less memory running KVM. KVM is designed to run in kilobytes memory for small devices.

Dalvik Virtual Machine:
When it comes to Android Operating System, they don't want to either JVM or KVM. Because they want to run a virtual machine for every application. This concept can't be implemented with existing virtual machines. Due to this reason, this virtual machine is integral part of the Android Operating System. In Android, the java .class bytecode converted to dalvik compatible .dex which will be executed with Dalvik Virtual Machine (DVM). The set of .dex files forms an Android Package (.apk) file, which gets installed on the devices to install and run the applications.

All the virtual machines primary source is developed in java.

Set of libraries have changed.
Memory allocation is different.

Micro SD Card, Unable to Format, Write Protected

Hi friends,

One more issue with some precaution. My friend formatted his micro-sd card and trying to copy the files from computer to sd card using card reader. The files aren't copying into the sd card. We tried to format the drive and it was showing an error in windows like "Windows was unable to format the drive".

We tried to format the drive on Linux, Mac also. Tried to use "dd" command to write random data in it. It was automatically disconnecting from PC/Mac. i.e. The drive is not accessible after sometime.

Then we have come to one conclusion that "Never, Ever format your sd card from the phone". It will not be accessible by the PC/Mac.

We tried to use the same SD Card in Samsung mobile also. It was detected and formatted from the Samsung phone too. It was formatted successfully. But when we were trying to copy some files to the sd card, It says "Drive location is accessible".

Lesson: "Don't format your micro-sd card from phone"

If anyone knows, how to solve this problem, please let me know.

Java: Create .jar file with .class file(s)

Hi friends,

Today, We had some trouble in using the .class file in java project. My colleague gave an idea of creating the .class to .jar file. So, We have created the .class file to .jar file, which solved our problem.

But one should know the package name of the .class file before creating the .jar file.

If the .class file is in some abc package. We have to place the .class file in a folder named abc.

In command prompt/terminal, go to the parent folder of abc.

jar cf jar_file_name dir\{classname(s),*}


cmd> jar cf abc.jar abc\*

All the classes from abc folder will be now in abc.jar file

Now you can import the .jar file in any java project.
