    You would need to add the Handbrake repository to your sources.list to get handbrake. It is a bit easier than it appears.

    https://edge.launchpad.net/~stebbins...rake-snapshots

    Open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and type

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    Add the following to the end of the file and save...

    Code:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-snapshots/ubuntu lucid main 
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-snapshots/ubuntu lucid main
    Then add the authentication key - copy the contents of the following webpage to a text file on your desktop.

    http://keyserver.ubuntu.com:11371/pk...71ADB0816950D8

    and go to System > Administration > Software Sources > Authentication and import the key file that you just created.

    Reload your software sources and you will be able to install handbrake using Synaptic Package Manager.

    Oh my! Thanks howefield, but I'm afraid this is above and beyond my current comfort level. I've only been using Ubuntu since April and although I do use the terminal for fairly straightforward commands, this appears very complex.

    I do appreciate the support, and I'm sure someone else will come along who will utilize your suggestion. I think, since I've found a method that works, I will stick to what I clearly understand and am confident with!

    Keep at it, you said it... "current comfort level" There is a learning curve with any operating system, your current level will keep rising the longer you use it.

    A lot to be said for that.

    Good luck.
