Ubuntu Secure Boot error “Image failed to verify with *ACCESS DENIED* on startup

After updating GRUB in Ubuntu I got this error and I was so afraid of this. But a YOUTUBE video helped me to recover from this. May this post can help you too.

I was using SAMSUNG laptop. Here is what we need to do.


You will see an option ‘SECURE BOOT’ and you need to disable it. Also when you disable it you will see an other option appears named as ‘OS MODE SELECTION’. If you disable ‘SECURE BOOT’ and your OS still cant boot then you need to change the options given in ‘OS MODE SELECTION’.

Ubuntu add proxy with username, password and port

I have tested this with Ubuntu 14.04
First go to system settings > Network > Network Proxy
and fill ‘Proxy’ and ‘Port’
Then click on ‘Apply system wide’

Now open apt.conf file

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/apt.conf

and add this

Acquire::http::proxy "http://username:password@proxy_ip:port/";
Acquire::https::proxy "https://username:password@proxy_ip:port/";
Acquire::ftp::proxy "ftp://username:password@proxy_ip:port/";
Acquire::socks::proxy "socks://username:password@proxy_ip:port/";

Take care of every semi-colon and slash. Save this,

Now open this ‘environment’ file. For this file you may need sudo password

nano /etc/environment

and add this


save file and then logout user to check settings. Use this command

set | grep -i proxy

and check if you see any variables now. If yes then you have successfully enabled proxy.
Now open firefox and check if it asks for password on startup. Then enter proxy username and password and Boom :).

Ubuntu delete directories or files command line — July 13, 2017

Ubuntu delete directories or files command line

To delete all file in a directory

rm /path/to/directory/*

To remove the folder with all its contents(including all interior folders):

rm -rf /path/to/directory

To remove all the contents of the folder(including all interior folders) but not the folder itself:

rm -rf /path/to/directory/*

To remove all the “files” from inside a folder(not removing interior folders):

rm -f /path/to/directory/*

rm – stands for “remove”
-f – stands for “force” which is helpful when you don’t want to be asked/prompted if you want to remove an archive, for example.
-r – stands for “recursive” which means that you want to go recursively down every folder and remove everything.
