So what happens? Your quote seems to be cut short. Whats displayed after "After this operation, 73.7 kB of additional disk space will be used."?

`restricted-extras' is a metapackage, so if you already have the relevant packages installed, it won't install anything new. You will have to check if you have packages from it installed - like microsoft truetype fonts etc. If not, and you have multiverse enabled, then something else is going on.

I don't see any errors in what you pasted. Have you tried installing it directly from Synaptic Package Manager? I find sometimes Software Centre fail because of dependencies while synaptic automatically checks dependencies but apt-get usually asks if I'd like to install the dependencies. But looks to me like it installed fine.

Can you paste the output of:



$ dpkg -l | grep gstreamer | grep ugly

apt-get always succeeded for me before, and i dont have software center.also tried it with synaptic but same thing, it doesnt install any of the extras (flash, jav....) the only dep or package that will install are res-extras and res-addon

hmm... seems like aptitude and apt-get are "recommending" the packages restricted-extras is supposed to install automagically. how do i make apt stop doing this?

Extremely weird... you do not seem to have the restricted packages yet the metapackage installs without complaining. I myself never install the metapackage since I pick out the packages I want.

You did mention that you are using xfce on top of Ubuntu 11.04 - does that mean you using Ubuntu and not Xubuntu? In that case, you should just try to install ubuntu-restricted-extras. What does that give you?

Have you ran dist-upgrade? I see that some stuff wasn't upgraded.

Just a thought, I've had stuff not install due to one package not being up to date.

The upgrade manager can upgrade the packages which `apt-get' does not take care of, such as certain kernel upgrades which it says are `held back'. I would advise you to fire up upgrade manager (since you have 2 packages not upgraded), check for updates, and then install whatever it says. Then you can try installing the restricted-extras stuff. The last time I had checked what restricted-extras had to offer, it was certainly not empty.

I must say that you are, because trying to install restricted-extras gives me:

It would appear you already have all the packages installed, but then you don't.... anybody else have ideas? Can you post you /etc/apt/sources.list here just to be sure?

alrite hold on, did you see my previous comment- apt is recommending these packages, not installing them by default!

Recommended packages:
gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly adobe-flashplugin flashplugin-installer
gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-pitfdll
icedtea6-plugin gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3
gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse ttf-mscorefonts-installer unrar
gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse libavcodec-extra-52 libmp4v2-0


so should i install them manually or is there a command to install packages with recommended ones?

Seems like you have everything :(. As a dirty workaround, I would suggest you try installing the packages manually:



$ sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-{bad,ugly} gstreamer0.10-plugins-{bad,ugly}-multiverse gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
This will install most of the multimedia codecs.

well, this is the workaround:

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends xubuntu-restricted-extras
probably its broken for me because im not using the "official" xubuntu or ubuntu build.
