Build essential package on Ubuntu

There had been lots of time during installation of packages on Ubuntu or other derivatives of it, when I used to install development packages separately. Like gcc g++ etc individually. However the is a easier way to do it. Just install "build-essential" package and this meta package will install those quintessential packages for you. No need to separately select and install those packages anymore.


Clear data in your Android device before going for reinstall


I used to have this phenomenon that I reinstall line after I take a backup change ROM and restore. Line always used to misbehave after restore and I used to reinstall it. Later I learned that a cleanup of data in settings is almost as good as reinstall and it saves time if app is a huge one.

Try it out next time if any of your app misbehave.
