How to enable arpon ( prevent arp spoofing)

To prevent arp poisoning in ubuntu.
you will have to install arpon
to install arpon run :

sudo apt-get install arpon

than you have to enable arpon by default by editing /etc/default/arpon
make it look like :

# Defaults for arpon initscript
# sourced by /etc/init.d/arpon
# installed at /etc/default/arpon by the maintainer scripts

# You must choose between static ARP inspection (SARPI) and
# dynamic ARP inspection (DARPI)
# For SARPI uncomment the following line (please edit also /etc/arpon.sarpi)
# DAEMON_OPTS="-q -f /var/log/arpon/arpon.log -g -s"

# For DARPI uncomment the following line
DAEMON_OPTS="-q -f /var/log/arpon/arpon.log -g -D"

# Modify to RUN="yes" when you are ready

than run :

sudo service arpon restart

(be careful in the default Ubuntu install the D is not capital and prevents arpon from starting)
and your done !

zsh in ubuntu

Zsh is a shell designed for interactive use, although it is also a powerful scripting language, in this post i will describe how to install and configure it

first install it from the repository by doing :

 sudo apt-get install zsh 

to install the grml config issu the following command in your home dir :

 wget -O .zshrc 

to also install the user config from grml issue :

 wget -O .zshrc.local 

to enable fish like syntax highlighting :

 git clone
    echo "source ${(q-)PWD}/zsh-syntax-highlighting/zsh-syntax-highlighting.zsh" >> ${ZDOTDIR:-$HOME}/.zshrc

Then, enable syntax highlighting in the current interactive shell:

 source ./zsh-syntax-highlighting/zsh-syntax-highlighting.zsh 

to test your newly installed zsh shell run zsh in bash
if you want to use zsh as your default shell issue :

 chsh -s $(which zsh) 

Xubuntu awsome install

awesome is a tiling window manager for linux

Installing awesome is as easy as doing :

sudo apt-get install -y awesome awesome-extra

by default awesome has no network manager or compositing to fix this we are going to use unagi and nm-applet

for compositing install :

sudo apt-get install -y unagi

and add the following to your /home/$username/.config/awesome/rc.lua:

awful.util.spawn_with_shell("unagi &")

to add a network manager just add the following to your /home/$username/.config/awesome/rc.lua

awful.util.spawn_with_shell("nm-applet &")
