I'm using crunchbang #! when it was #!-9 around in 2010 , now using #!-11. Between these period I tested out many linux distros but never feel that any linux is stable as #! is now, because it drops Ubuntu and using Debian-stable :) .
As per the heading of this post to change wallpaper in Crunchbang we need to copy paste the wallpapers( images ) into following directory./home/[username]/images/wallpapers/shared/
But "shared" folder is locked, so we need to copy-paste the images as a "sudo" user. Please Follow the steps.
1 Press "alt+f2" then enter "sudo thunar" and enter your password.
2 Now copy your wallpaper(images) and paste it into "/home/[username]/images/wallpapers/shared/" directory.
3 "Right-click" on the desktop and navigate to " settings > Choose Wallpaper ".
4 Now you can easily see the images and set the wallpaper by selecting images and clicking on "apply" button.

Here is my wallpaper link

Wait for the next crunchbang post. Keep Coding :)

I was configuring PPPOE connection manually by command line using "sudo pppoeconf", and by mistake I changed some settings. So after I restarted my laptop, I was getting an boot time error "waiting for network configuration" and after some time "waiting upto 60 seconds more for network configuration.."
Also there are possibilities to get this error while upgrading the system.
I solved these problem by using 2 methods.
After logged into Ubuntu.
Open terminal, type
First : not a permanent solution
  sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager start
Second : permanent solution
  sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
And remove the lines after
  auto eth0
  iface eth0 inet loopback
Make sure to save the file before closing it.Reboot the system

While I was making contact-us form in PHP for my client then I thought about to do same in Djago-Python. Target was to get the form input and email it. Here I'm going to test only the DjangoEmail module using shell.
Edit settings.py with code below:
    #settings for django email( writing for gmail)
    EMAIL_USE_TLS = True
    EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.gmail.com'
    SITE_HOST = '127.0.0.1:8000'
    DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL ='Dotorbit Team '
    EMAIL_PORT = 587
    EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'dotorbit.dev@gmail.com'
    EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'your-password'
    #Run interactive mode, 
    python manage.py shell
    #Import the EmailMessage module,
    >>>from django.core.mail import EmailMessage
    #Send the email,
    >>>email = EmailMessage('Subject goes here ', ' Body goes here ', to=['reciever@email.com'])
    >>>email.send()
    >>>1

This will return 1, means everything is working fine. form and view, I'll write in next post.

There are lots of tutorials available for Apache,MySql and PHP installation on linux and Windows. But I prefer the simple one for Debian.Command will not work without caret(^). sudo apt-get install lamp-server^ Now,This will download and install the Apache,PHP and MySql. step1 : test "localhost" in browser. Works !!
step2 : run the apache2 service. $ sudo service apache2 restart
or
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
If it works !! You are champ.
For me ,It throws an error --
codeleaf@dotorbit-backbox:/media/Development/Developer/HEROKU/DotOrbit$ sudo service apache2 restart
* Restarting web server apache2
apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName
... waiting apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1 for ServerName
I googled about it and found the solution,
By default "httpd.conf" file will be blank. Now, simply add the following line to the file. $ sudo gedit /etc/apache2/httpd.conf Add the following line to "httpd.conf" and save it . ServerName localhost Now restart the server. $ sudo service apache2 restart
$ * Restarting web apache 2 server
... waiting
Woohoo.. It works
step3 - Test whether PHP is working or not ? Create "test.php" in /var/www/ directory. $ sudo gedit /var/www/test.php and add following line " < ?php phpinfo(); ? > step 4 - Test localhost/test.php and you will get the info page. e.g "PHP Version 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.4"

Before using Linux Mint Debiab Edition(LMDE) I was using Ubuntu-12.04LTS .
It was my worst experience with ubuntu. It looks like Ubuntu12.04LTS is not matured. I've faced lots of problems like touchpad freezes , after updates system get crashed , lots of bug reporting etc . Anyway I'm not anti-ubuntu .
In frustration I removed Ubuntu12.04 and installed LMDE on my Dell Vostro-1540 (core-i3).
Since the kernel is built with LMDE 201 109 486, then the default kernel is only able to detect a single core . Result was ,I've experienced some sort have 'hang' during my Android application development .
I decided to install the kernel 686, exactly 686-PAE. This kernel is the best solution for running LMDE on 'multi-core' system .
No need to worry about it .
Simple steps are here to install linux-kernel-i686.
 $ sudo apt-get update
 $ sudo apt-get install linux-image-686 linux-headers-686-pae
for i486.
 $ sudo apt-get update
 $ sudo apt-get install linux-image-486 linux-headers-486
for amd64.
 $ sudo apt-get update
 $ sudo apt-get install linux-image-amd64 linux-headers-amd64
