Every year there are thousands teams organizing Software Freedom Day in different countries and cities.Software Freedom Day is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Our goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home, and in business -- in short, everywhere!

Kathmandu University Open Source Community is a part of Kathmandu University Computer Club which is fully dedicated in promoting Opens Source Software as well as hardware and spreading knowledge about it in the community. SFD EVE was celebrated within the premise of Kathmandu University (in front of Kathmandu University Central Library) .
Following were the attractions of SFD EVE:

  1. POSTER PRESENTATION
  2. FOSS KA KURA( FOSS DISCUSSION )

These Pictures speaks one common language i.e. open source and in above picture it is mentioned that we do not hate Windows.But in Nepal, we come to hear that one of the MSP(Microsoft Student Partner) was out from his post for giving a presentation on Open Source on Software Freedom Day.
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.

 This downloads  .deb file for installing Flareget. 
2) Double click the downloaded file and you will get forwarded to the Software centre and you will need to install from there. It won't take time to install because it is already downloaded .
