Install VMWare Player in ubuntu

  • Download .bundle package
  • Use sudo sh <name of ur bundle> in terminal

Create aliases in ubuntu

Lets first create a hidden file called .bash_aliases in your home directory with this command:

> ~/.bash_aliases; gedit ~/.bash_aliases

To add, for example, an alias for updating repositories, you can add this line to your file:

alias update='sudo apt-get update'

update -----> the name assigned to the 'sudo apt-get update' command. Save your file and exit. To test your alias, close the terminal and start it again, then test your alias by running this command:


'update' will serve as an abbreviation for the 'sudo apt-get update' command. Here are some other alias examples that you can add to the ~/.bash_aliases file:

alias upgrade='sudo apt-get upgrade'

alias inst='sudo apt-get install'

alias autorm='sudo apt-get autoremove'

NOTEWhen adding new aliases, you have to restart your terminal so that they are taken into account. 

That's it!
