[HOWTO] Open IPv6 IP addresses in browser

IPv4 has been a big success but due to the increase in the number of users in the current context of the world, the number of IP are getting lower and lower. And the temporary solution to it was Routers and switches that help create local network and distribute local IP’s. But with the IPv6, now every grain of sand in the world can get a unique IP address.

But opening the IP directly from browser is quiet different. Previously, on IPv4 we used to open, and something like that. But with the technology of Ipv6 we cannot open the IP directly like: http://ipv6/ rather you need to keep the IPv6 inside a [Big Bracket].

For http://localhost/ to be IPv6, you can use as: http://[::1]/ OR http://[::]/

Similarly, you can open Google’s IPv6 by pinging

NOTE: If you get the IPv6 address from your Router but you cannot ping the then it doesn’t mean you are having the problem. Because your ISP(Internet Service Provider) is not providing any IPv6 service yet. In case of my country Nepal, my Router with ADSL2+ supports IPv6 for my local computer but Nepal Telecom hasn’t released IPv6 to the customer. According to some research, they have successfully installed the IPv6 system for testing purpose.

Welcome to the new world.

[SOLVED] Ubuntu 12.04 – Gnome 3 Skype icon not displaying


I have been using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Gnome 3.4.1. This problem might have occurred in most of the people. I have setup my Skype to run on startup on my Ubuntu. Most people might have also done that. I don’t know how to add any program to start up so, I logout my Ubuntu and switch to Ubuntu classic and add a new program at startup from the Startup menu. This was the most efficient startup adding without any command line. But while I added Skype on my start up, it didn’t used to show any icon on the status bar nor in any location.

Previously without startup, it used to show up the skype icon on the bottom and could control all the functions from the menu provided by skype. So, I used cairo-dock so that it would help me bringing skype on one click. But, I didn’t want the cairo dock thing and want to make some clean Ubuntu. But the problem was couldn’t get the skype icon. Then I did some research and found that if the gnome-shell is loaded first and the skype was started later, that should do the trick.


So, previously I added to the startup:

And Now I changed to:

And that did the whole trick. The above command runs my skype after 5 seconds. So with some calculation, my gnome-shell loads after 2-3 seconds on startup. So, that might be good set the “5s” to your desired second as per your Linux load time.Enjoy
