Remove Unneeded apps in Ubuntu

sudo apt-get autoremove

While learning some commands on Ubuntu Terminal, I came across one called apt-get autoremove. This was actually suggested by the terminal when I was playing around with apt-get.

Whenever an application is installed using apt-get, the system will also install dependend software. It is common in Ubuntu/Linux that applications share the same libraries. But when you you remove an appplication, the dependency will not be removed as it may be used by another application.

When we run sudo apt-get autoremove, it will remove the dependencies that were installed with applications and that are no longer used by anything else on the system.

I was able to save around 1 GB of disk space when I ran this command. How much space could you save?

Splash Screen

From my research, there are multiple ways to create a Splash Screen ranging from new Activity for splash which is displayed for a fixed time to the simple approach detailed below.

Introducing Trip O Meter

Trip O Meter started out as a simple idea to know how much fuel would be needed when making a trip. I just wanted to make sure there was sufficient amount of fuel while planning.

Year 2016 in Review

Whoa, A year went by so fast. I still remember setting up this blog and writing the Bye Bye 2015 post, which seem a few months back.

Here are the highlights from 2016.

  • Migrated few Android apps to Android Studio
  • Won a Quarterly award at work
  • Reading the third book by Robert Galbraith - Career of Evil
  • Finally bought a DSLR
  • Took some technical courses and now I know a little bit more Javascript, Java 8 and Bootstrap thanks to Pluralsight
  • Went for a Pondichery Trip as well as few short trips

Nothing major to note from music scene, but watched a few movies.

It seems that I have blogged lesser than I had hoped this past year. Need to blog more often. Some long travel trips also need to be made.

First DSLR

I finally made transition from a Point & Shoot camera to a DSLR. It was made possible with the Canon 700D and 18-55 and 55-250 lenses.



Watching football, like most other sport, is extra fun if you are with like minded kith or kin. So I decided to capture an experience of some friends watching a football match live. But the problem was to find some enthusiastic people on a short notice. The outcome after some improvisation is the image above.

In this blog post, I shall try to share the methods used to achieve this image.
