    Lubuntu 12.04 restricted extras

    Tried every terminal command I could find on the forum such as
    sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras
    keep getting E:Unable to locate package lubuntu-restricted-extras
    Any other suggestions?

    Lubuntu 12.04 is out of support, which could explain the error message. Better to begin with a fresh install of 14.04.

    It was released on 17th April. So it isn't beta currently.

    Thanks. Not having experience of using a new version,is it better to wait for a month or so, or are all bugs addressed?

    There will never be a time when all bugs are adressed, but I have not had any trouble myself. Best you can do is trying 14.04 in a live boot and see for yourself.

    I run Lubuntu on a test box and feel pretty good about it. This is what I like to see ..

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop

    As compared to this

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/+bugs

    This does not mean you will have a trouble free install, but the odds are good
