How to create an Ubuntu package from source

Building from source has never been the most popular choice of the less experienced Linux users who are always in the seek for a pre-built package. This is especially the case with Ubuntu users who like convenience and GUIs over power and terminals. Unfortunately, everything in the Linux world gets first released as source, and then it gets packaged for the various distributions and architectures, meaning that you will most probably never find a package of the absolutely latest version of a software that got just released. Thankfully, building an Ubuntu package is a simple procedure that doesn't require any technical or coding knowledge at all. Here's a step by step guide on how to do it.

Performance monitoring with Monitorix 3.8.0 on Ubuntu 15.10

This tutorial will show the installation and configuration of Monitorix on Ubuntu 15.10 (Wiley Werewolf). Monitorix is a free, lightweight, open source monitoring tool designed to monitor as many services and system resources as possible on servers and desktops. It consists mainly of two programs: a collector, called monitorix, which is a Perl daemon that is started automatically as a system service, and a CGI script called monitorix.cgi. Since 3.0 version Monitorix includes its own HTTP server built in, so you aren't forced to install a third-party web server to use it.

How to generate a animated GIF or movie out of images on Linux

It is very unlikely for anyone nowadays not to own a device that is capable of shooting many consecutive pictures (burst mode). While this is useful for helping you take the perfect shot in sport events etc, you may want to use some of those successive frames to create a movie. Thankfully, you can do this very easily on Linux. In this tutorial, I will use five (not so closely successive) shots of my Cockatiel parrot bird trying to drink some of my coffee.

This kind of setup is often called LEMP = Linux + Nginx (pronounced "engine x") + MySQL + PHP). Nginx is a fast and efficient HTTP server that uses less resources than Apache and delivers pages a lot faster, especially static files.

How to Encrypt Directories/Partitions with eCryptfs on Debian 8 (Jessie)

How to safely wipe your data with Dariks Boot and Nuke bootable live CD

Sometimes, we need to completely and irreversibly wipe all data contained in a disk to keep them from falling into the wrong hands. This may not be something we are doing on a day to day basis, but if you want to do it, you should do it right and ensure that the data cannot be recovered by experts. One of the many ways of doing this is through Darik's Boot and Nuke bootable live CD. This tool is made from the same team that develops the professional-grade Blancco data eraser, only it is available for free and without guarantee or support. The reason I like DBaN is because it is very simple to use and does the job fast.
