[How-to] Multiple Accounts on Hangouts For Chrome

Hangouts is a good messaging app. It has so many features and it is integrated with Google services. Hangouts app for mobile (Android and iOS) is good too. But, when it comes to Hangouts for Chrome, well, not so much.

One of Hangouts’ biggest problem: you cannot use multiple accounts on one computer. The feature isn’t there, so you can’t have it. That’s the problem. Our problem. My problem too.

Fortunately, I found out a solution. And you can be happy about it. As well as I am.

Google Chrome has account (or accounts) and it is (or, they are) associated with Hangouts. Once you logged in to the Google services for Chrome, you logged in to Hangouts extension as well. Painless. So, to have multiple Hangouts accounts all you need is multiple accounts for Chrome.

How to use multiple accounts on Chrome?

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Scroll down on that page and you will see Users part located under the Search part
    users
    I have two already
  3. Now, click Add new users button and choose nickname and icon. The rest is up to you:
    powerman
    You will be redirected to new page
  4. Time to sign in to Google services
  5. Install Hangouts extension for the new account
  6. Done
    proofand this
    proof
    Both accounts are online on the same computer

To open both (or whatever number you have) you don’t need to open many Chrome pages. Once your Hangouts account signed in, you can close the other pages because Hangouts will stays open and available. Just leave one page (account) opened.

Good luck!

[How to] Recover Deleted Files With Scalpel in Ubuntu

I am in a habit of using [Shift] + [Del] combination to delete files rather than delete only. I won’t store not-so-important files in my Recycle Bin, that’s why. This is a good habit in one hand and bad in the other hand because there’s a chance I accidentally delete an important file/folder.

Recover your deleted files in Ubuntu

Luckily, Linux (Ubuntu in this case) has few good tools to recover deleted data and in easy ways. In this post I will show you how to recover deleted file via Ubuntu with Scalpel.

Scalpel is a file system independent recovery tool which available for Linux and Mac OS. But, you can run it on Windows with mingw.

  1. Install the Scalpelwith:
    # sudo apt-get install scalpel.
  2. Open configuration file located in /etc, it looks like /etc/scalpel/scalpel.conf, with an editor.
    # vi /etc/scalpel/scalpel.conf
  3. Uncomment file type line part you wish to recover and save the file
  4. Run Scalpel from the Terminal
    scalpel /Device_Name/Drive_Name/Folder_Name -o Output_Directory
  5. Output_Directory will be created in the directory we’re running Scalpel. The Output_Directory should not be exist before you run Scalpel because otherwise Scalpel will refuse to start.
  6. Go to Output_Directory and view what’s inside.
  7. There should be a file named audit.txtwhich contains a summary of what Scalpel has done. Open it to look what has done.
    cat audit.txt
  8. There should be adirectory which has recovered files. For example the folder named pdf-0-0 for PDF files. Open the folder and you have your file.

For more information about scalpel commands, type: man scalpel
