Jai Hind Script – Review
There is always new software arriving on my desk, waiting to be tested. Some of it is good and some of it not so good. Some so bad, I refuse to write about.
Last week, several of the Staff at Unixmen received a little script called Jai Hind Script.
It’s an interesting script. It’s such a unique yet simple concept, that when you run it you think to yourself “Why haven’t I seen something like this before?”.
So what does the Jai Hind Script do? Read on and see.
This script is solely for use in Ubuntu and its derivatives at this stage. The developers tell us future revisions will aim to support Linux operating systems such as Red Hat based distributions and its derivatives.
The first screen you’re presented with in the Jai Hind Script is the Main Menu.
It’s all pretty simply set out and very easy to understand. It’s a simply display of sub-menus and the corresponding number next to each sub-menu in which you must press to the enter that menu.
The first sub-menu is Fresh Install Tasks.
It’s all very handy stuff. You can Fetch System Updates, Fetch Kernel Updates, Install Flash Player and Java. It’s nice to see there’s support for both 32bit and 64bit Java package installation.
All of the other sub-menus are all set out exactly the same and there’s some handy little additions in this script.
Other handy options are View System Information, Mounted Devices and Partitions and Currently Logged-in Users.
There’s also options to view Networking information and Interface information, in addition to viewing RAM information and monitoring.
There’s not a lot in this script, but as far as we can tell that’s not the intention of its purpose. It would be handy for any users migrating from Windows OS to Linux and begin to feel a little out of their comfort zone when it comes to installing particularly Flash Player and Java.
It’s a neat little script and I would certainly recommend you check this one out. As an advanced user, I probably could not find a use for it myself, but I would certainly recommend it to new Ubuntu users who require a little bit of hand-holding to get them started. And it also might be of some comfort to get new users comfortable sitting in a terminal console.
The code we received at Unixmen was a pre-release version and there were some obvious niggles in the code. We understand that by the time this article goes to publish, the final code will be updated. So these small issues should be sorted out with the final code. Be sure to check it out for yourself. At the moment, it is released under free license, but it is not open-source. But I have been assured that the source code for the script will be released in due time.
If you want to try the script for yourself, you can download it from here https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B-Eju00hYpGBampoaG9pN0dSb1E&usp=sharing
Once downloaded, cd to the directory of the downloaded file and run this to make it executable. And then the script can be executed:
$ chmod +x jaihind.sh.x $ ./jaihind.sh.x
