In this tutorial I’ll show you how to easily install SyncWall wallpaper changer on Ubuntu and Linux Mint via PPA repository.

SyncWall is quite a basic wallpaper changer for Ubuntu Linux. It has the ability to synchronize wallpaper change between several workstations with a basic (and unsecured) client/server protocol. Each workstation must share the same pool of files, there is no FTP or Internet download.

SyncWall

Features:

  • Synchronization change between computers
  • Simple multi monitor support
  • Ability to add some special effects (blur,gray,edges, …) to wallpaper before display

To install SyncWall, press Ctrl+Alt+T to open terminal, then follow the below steps:

1.) Run command to add the ppa repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8

Want to build a website? Then you need to setup a web server! Here I’ll show you how to install and setup LAMP pack on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server.

LAMP is a combination of Linux (OS), Apache HTTP Server, PHP (open-source scripting language), and MySQL (database software).

In this tutorial I use the hostname www.example.com with the IP address 192.168.0.100 as example.

1.) Login or Remote access your server as root, or run command to get root privileges.

sudo su

2.) Install Mysql 5:

apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client

You’ll be asked to set a password for root user of Mysql.

3.) Install Apache2:

apt-get install apache2

After installed, test if it works by going to http://192.168.0.100 in your web browser. Remember change the IP to yours.

apache-wellcome-page

The default default document root is /var/www/, and the configuration file is /etc/apache2/apache2.conf.

4.) Install PHP5:

apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5

Restart Apache2 service to get it works with PHP5:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

5.) To test if PHP5 works, create info.php in the root directory “/var/www/”:

vi /var/www/info.php

press I to insert following codes:

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

then press Esc -> Shif+: type in wq and hit enter to save. Then in browser go to http://192.168.0.100:info.php

Phpinfo

6.) To get Mysql support in PHP5, install following packages:

apt-get install php5-mysql php5-curl php5-gd php5-intl php-pear php5-imagick php5-imap php5-mcrypt php5-memcache php5-ming php5-ps php5-pspell php5-recode php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-tidy php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl

Then restart Apache2 service:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Go to or reload http://192.168.0.100/info.php in your browser:

Mysql-support-in-php5

7.) (Optional) Install phpMyAdmin, a web interface to manage Mysql Databases:

apt-get install phpmyadmin

After installed, go to http://192.168.0.100/phpmyadmin/, login with root and password you set in step 2.
