Trash in Linux

Trash in Linux

When deleting a file a .Trash-1000 folder is created which contains two subfolders files and info.
My deleted file as well as folder is saved all inside the subfolder files.
If I Select Trash and Right click + Properties I cannot see the location of trash, just the details of files it contains.
If all my deleted files are saved in a hidden folder in same directory, what is Trash? Is it just a virtual folder which seems to exist but really doesn't?

With my observation I can say that Trash is collection of such deleted files and they remain always inside the same directory   it was deleted. In order to remove them you should permanently delete the i.e. Shift + Del + Enter . This will only permanently delete the file. Temporarily deleting a file means hiding it with .filename.

FACEBOOK Photo Album Download

I don't use Facebook anymore. Its not about the privacy issue but I won't be using it any more. But there are my 50 photo albums that are very precious to me. In order to download it one image after another it takes months. After a few research I found this Firefox Add-on facepaste which fulfills my objective.
If you want to download all the photos of your facebook photo album at a single click then,   you have this Firefox addon "facepaste" developed by  Delan Azabani. This add on is free to download. Once you install this addon you can easily download all your album in a single click. You can also download multiple album at once.
After the installation:
#1 Right Click + Download Facebook Album(s)
Then you can see the screen similar as below

facepaste User Interface

Enjoy facepaste.
But things like Add-on and extention don't necessarily exist in the browser in case facepaste doesnot exist any more please Search " Facebook Album Download " in firefox add-on search bar.

Also there exists an Application of Chrome Browser titled " Facebook Photo & Album Manager" This is more user friendly than facepaste. Choose whichever you like.
Thank You!!!

I tried a lot to enable hotspot through the GUI of Network Manager but it never happened. It created a hotspot but always the created hotspot didn't even appear in my android phone. Sometimes it is a problem in Ubuntu14.04. Same user interface worked for enabling hotspot in 13.10.Here are the steps that will guide you to enable hotspot and connect with other devices.You need to add a repository online, so make sure that you are using internet 
[email protected]:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 Update the whole list of repositories 
[email protected]:~$sudo apt-get update                                        Adding the repository  adds ap-hotspot to the list, Now install ap-hotspot
[email protected]:~$sudo apt-get install ap-hotspot                         ap-hotspot is now installed. Better open,configure  and start the hotspot service
[email protected]:~$sudo ap-hotspot
[email protected]:~$sudo ap-hotspot configure
[email protected]:~$ sudo ap-hotspot start

After HOTSPOT is created

In case you want to see the devices that are connected to your hotspot use this command
[email protected]:~$ arp -a
I tried it in 14.04, give it a try in other distributions, hope it works. Enjoy the Linux Tips.Keep sharing with us , at the end idea of Linux is all about sharing and learning.
