This software helps you add a little more security to your desktop. It does so by detecting one of your bluetooth devices, most likely your mobile phone, and keeping track of its distance. If you move away from your computer and the distance is above a certain level (no measurement in meters is possible) for a given time, it automatically locks your desktop (or starts any other shell command you want).
Once away your computer awaits its master back – if you are nearer than a given level for a set time your computer unlocks magically without any interaction (or starts any other shell command you want).
BlueProximity is availible in the Ubuntu repositories, and is very easy to install and set up:
sudo aptitude install blueproximity
Before you run BlueProximity for the first time, make sure your Bluetooth is set up on your computer, and you have paired your cellphone with your desktop. You can find general Bluetooth options under System > Preferences > Bluetooth.
When you’re ready to run BlueProximity, you can find it under Applications > Accessories > BlueProximity. BlueProximity runs in the background, and displays a small icon in the taskbar to show its status. Click on the icon to configure its settings.
In the “Bluetooth Device” tab, you can choose the cellphone or device to pair with and monitor.
In the next tab, “Proximity Details”, you set the distance and times to lock and unlock your computer.
The final preferences tab, “Locking”, controls how BlueProximity will lock and unlock your computer. It has options for the exact commands which will be invoked, as well as logging options. Basically, BlueProximity will call gnome-screensaver-command to control the screensaver– turning it on and off appropriately. For this to work though, you will also need to set up a screensaver.
To check your screensaver settings, go to System > Preferences > Screensaver.
Once you’ve got BlueProximity and your screensaver configured, everything should be ready to go! Simply walk away from your computer and watch it automatically fade into your screensaver. Walk back, and the desktop should automatically wake up.
It’s a pretty fun toy, although not the most useful. However, for those like myself who tend to walk away from the computer without locking it, you can feel a little better when you have your cellphone in your pocket.
You could also configure what commands to run other then the defaults via the “Locking” tab. Enjoy!
How to install all multimedia codecs in ubuntu
Ubuntu Linux  is a Debian-based, desktop Linux distribution whose name
means “humanity to others.” The philosophy behind this GNU/Linux
distribution and the great selection of packages make you feel good that
you’re using it. The lack of multimedia support, however, leaves your
digital media desires unsated.
in the terminal :
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
have fun 🙂
Once again, we are going to talk about Kiwi.
Kiwi is an Imaging System, a part of the greater openSUSE Build Service, a complex, omnipotent imaging/virtualization solution that allows you to create any which kind of operating system images, fully customizable and deployable in a vast range of formats, based on your own installation, the vanilla openSUSE or any other Linux distribution.
Kiwi can achieve these tasks using XML templates, as it is geared toward power users who like automation and scripting. However, Kiwi also supports work by the means of much simpler, much friendlier GUI frontends called Image Creator and Product Creator.

The YaST Product Creator is suitable for creating the following types of images:
The YaST Product Creator has some limitations:
The YaST Product Creator provides configurations for all types of images. These configurations can be used as a good base for most situations. If you need a special configuration and are not familiar with the add-on configuration or editing and creating a KIWI configuration, see Creating Add-ons and en.opensuse.org/KIWI
