If you first installing your PC and freshly add new browser such Firefox 14, you’ll notice that your browser still able to play any kind of video on

Youtube will detect your browser configuration. If you don’t have flash player installed, Youtube will use HTML5 mode. The video will use *.webm ekstension if you download it.

WebM video format has become popular nowadays, since it has video playback support for HTML5 browser. That mean, we don’t need third party add-on to play videos on a modern browser.

Native 64bit Windows Application

Tuesday 15 May 2012 | post a comment

I’ve got some new PC hardware in my office. Using 8GB of RAM, this PC definitely need 64bit operating system. I prefers to use Crunchbang Linux 64bit installed on that machine, but my office need Windows OS to use a scanner hardware which come with Windows software and driver only. So, it seems I have to use Windows 64bit operating system installed on it.


After installing Windows 7 64bit, offcourse I have to use 64bit software to gain some more performance. Here a create list which I found on the internet about native 64bit application for Windows 64bit OS:

  1. Compress-uncompress tools
    7zip 64bit (free)
  2. Media Player
    Media Player Classic 64bit (free)
  3. Audio Player
    Small Player (free)
  4. PDF Reader
    Nitro PDF reader (not free).
  5. Browser
    – Waterfox is Firefox variant with 64bit support system (free)
    – Opera Next 64bit (free)
  6. Torrent client
    BitComet (free)
  7. AntiVirus
    AVG Antivirus 64bit (after I check on task manager, the AVG interface interface it self still use the 32bit). So I prefers to use Microsoft Security Essential (free).
  8. Virtual Machine
    Oracle VM VirtualBox (it has small installation size and free).
  9. Disc Burner
    Infra Recorder, which able to burn iso file (free)
  10. Hard disk defragmenter
    UltraDefrag (free)
  11. Junk file cleaner
    CCleaner (free)

For Office suit, I still hope that LibreOffice developer will launch it’s native 64bit versions, although their application right now support both 32 and 64 operating system. For other office suite alternative, Microsoft Office 2010 64bit were available too.


Fix Grub OS Selection Menu on Dual boot Installed OS Windows and Linux

Monday 5 December 2011 | post a comment

It’s been twice my OS boot selection been removed after installing Crunchbang Linux (based on Debian Squeeze). After search on Google, I found this link (although it was meant for ubuntu, but it works fine on me)


Maybe that tutorial a little bit hard to novice user. I found another simple way to do this.

  1. Run your favorite console & Install OS Prober program by typing this:
    sudo apt-get install os-prober
  2. running it using console
    sudo os-prober
  3. Update your grub by run this command
    sudo update-grub

Reboot and it should fix your OS boot selection menu.

PS: if you run sudo command, you’ll be promt to enter your administrator password.

Mengganti Isi File Home Desktop Crunchbang

Wednesday 30 November 2011 | post a comment

Iseng-iseng memasang lingkungan desktop LXDE pada Crunchbang yang kemarin saya download (a Debian curent-stable based GNU/Linux distribution with Openbox environtment).

sudo apt-get install lxde

Akhirnya didapat lingkungan khas ala LXDE dengan menu ala Windows XP klasik. Start menu di pojok kiri, launcher aplikasi dengan berbagai kategorinya, dan icon-icon di desktop.


Namun ada satu hal yang agak mengganjal. Desktop LXDE menampilkan icon-icon yang berada pada directory home. Otomatis layar jadi penuh dengan berbagai isi folder dan file di folder home.

Iseng-iseng buka file config pada PC saya

Ternyata ada file

Diintip-intip dikit pake editor leafpad atau Geany bawaan Crunchbang
# This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update
# If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you're
# interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run
# Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped
# homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an
# absolute path. No other format is supported.

Baris ini terlihat ada yang mengganjal.

Buat folder baru dengan nama “desktop” pada direktori home.

Ubah baris yang mengganjal tadi jadi seperti ini.

Simpan perubahan, dan akhirnya directory Desktop berubah tidak menjadi directory Home lagi.
