Yes. It’s Done. You don’t need set PATH or else. Just check it with command :


Then the command character change with : %. To Exit just type “exit” (without “”). Or just do an example with download this (please change the extension from simple.tcl.odt with simple.tcl) then run with command :

Wireshark is wellknown packet analyzer, so if you wanna mess arround to your neighboorhood, install this. But today i not show how to used it (maybe next time) but i will show ho o install it in *HARD” way, how ? that we compile it self.

Step 1: Download the source from here :

Step 2: Go to directory that that source my case is in /home/myusername/wireshark/
so you must do :
cd home/myusername/wireshark/

Step 3: change to root please:
$ sudo bash
it will be asking for your password, so enter your password

the the terminal goes by :
that sign # mean you now on root.

Step 4 : Extract that you downladed :
#tar -xvf wireshark-1.4.3.tar.bz2

Step 4: Before we compile, we need additional packet, so just type this :

#aptitude install autoconf libgtk2.0-dev libglib2.0-dev libgeoip-dev libpcre3-dev libpcap0.8-dev libtool byacc flex subversion

Step 5: Now, time to compiling the source code:

#cd wireshark-1.4.3


This will take some time, but after eventually complete. Type:
#make install

To use wireshark, use :
sh wireshark

Hope it give a damn clue ….

Remote Desktop use protocol called remote desktop protocol, that protocol just design to communicate other OS with Microsoft Windows Machine, in GNU/Linux for using RDP, we need to install package called “rdekstop”, how to get this stuff:

#apt-get install rdesktop

Afer it finished, use with command :


i.e, we want remote computer with IP, then command :


If you want to display fullscreen, just add command :

#rdesktop -A
