Burning DVD from IPod with Ubuntu

A couple days ago i watch my free disk and from 80GB i only have 3GB left.
mostly i store serial movie like Prison Break, Heros and a couple movie and Avatars The legend of Aang :P

need some free space, i go to buy 12 piece DVD. 10 among them is Verbatim and 2 are for test.

first I've doubt when comes to burning DVD especially on linux platform. first i try to find nero burning software that works on linux. but it's not free. sadly I'm afraid that this software will become my first illegal software on ubuntu. but when i try im getting error and lost one DVD. So after browse a little bit i found GnomeBaker. and its works pretty good. i burn 8DVD data without any problem.

and i burn it directly from iPOD. Don't worry if you afraid to do this. well i tried it 8 times and still getting a good burn. here are the screenshot

Dual Monitor

Just a couple weeks ago, my father bought a new 19 inch Wide LCD for a good price at Rp. 1.800.000 ,- or about $199. its a fine monitor but there are no cd or driver inside. i get 1 dvi and 1 vga cable, adaptor and the power cable. I think it's a good bargain because after i saw it on online store the same item cost about Rp. 2.000.000,- or about $220. but the support are very poor. the brand is GTC. if I'm not mistaken, its a Thailand brand. when i search for driver on the net. its even hard to search for the company website.

a browse a little bit and found a tutorial about getting dual monitor support on ubuntu. (here is the link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=221174) i use the mergeFD function on Xorg. its works fine, but first dont forget to backup your current /etc/X11/xorg.conf becuse something will get messy.

1st create clean configuration using

sudo apt-get dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

it's easier to work from a clean configuration. Mainly you just follow and answer the default configuration. but you really have to know a little bit info abot your monitor (such as Hsync, Vsync. browse for your monitor spec on the manufacturer's website).

than just follow the tutorial. and happy ubuntu-ing :p

below are the screen shoot of dual monitor on windows. Im watching my download progress and chat with Pidgin while playing WC3 DotA

Change firefox google.com search engine to google.co.id

Firefox distribution included on linux distribution. we couldn't denial that google is the most awesome search engine on the net. the default search engine on firefox is google.com . I use primarily google.co.id to search because its often came up with Indonesian language first. after browsing the web and a little of experiment I manage to change the default google search engine to google.co.id

here's ho :
1. Open teriminal
2. cd /usr/share/firefox/searchplugins
3. vim google.xml (or whatever editor you use)
4. edit the following line :

<url type="text/html" method="GET" template="http://www.google.com/search">


<url type="text/html" method="GET" template="http://www.google.co.id/search">

5. save the file (on vim type ":w" without the quote)
6. restart the firefox

Merubah smiley di PIDGIN (formerly Gaim)

Ada suatu aplikasi di ubuntu yang pasti semua orang yg onlie make. Gaim.
sekarang udah sebulan gaim ganti nama jadi Pidgin. itu karena AOL nuntut karena Aim adalah trademark dari AOL (American On Line).

banyak si fitur tambahan (belum explore semua) tapi sayangnya, smile nya juga berubah dari gaim. mungkin karena mirip yah*o kali yak.

berikut caranya masukin smiley gaim ke pidgin

prerequisite : gaim dan pidgin terinstall
  1. cp /usr/share/pixmaps/gaim/smileys/ /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/emotes/gaim

    perintah tersebut akan mengcopy semua folder smiley di gaim ke folder smiley pidgin

  2. cd /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/emotes/gaim/

    masuk ke directory gaim

  3. vim theme

    edit file tersebut. bisa juga pake text editor yang lain (ex: gedit)

    ubah line pertama menjadi sbb

    Description=Gaim Emoticons from each protocol's official client.

    hal ini bertujuan supaya defaultnya ga sama dengan yang pidgin

  4. Done
Semoga manfaat :D


This is the first test. just ignore me :)

A Really Nice Day To Start Blogging

"Hello World"

Those simple words sometimes implicitly declare that it is a new beginning of something wonderful. Iyuup for a start, this particularly is my birthday. I’m 21 Older than the day when my generous mom “Bring me to life”.

For a start, let me introduce my self. My full name is Ahmy Yulrizka, I’m a third year students of Informatics engineering @ Bandung Institute of Technology. There are no pretty much to be proud of me. I have so many dream yet not enough attitude and willingness. Sometimes I lived in regretful knowing that I’ve so much to grate but not to grate them until they had taken away from me. I know my English is bad, and I’m counting on MS Word to correct my grammar. But this is a least I can do. :)

I don't really have a good title for my Blog, I will name it as soon as I have an idea for it. But right now just name it the … (dot dot dot) :p

For close up, I really like to thanks all of those who had helped my get trough this life. Especially my family. And I would really like to say that I’m sorry for all the things I’ve done. Hopefully with me getting older, I could be a better person than before and hope that the best of me is not yet had come.

Thank you :)
