    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Is the guide at the first post still valid with 8.10 Itrepid Ibex?

    EDIT: Ok, by reading furthermore, i suppose so. My question may seem silly but, i won't make the mistake of following a how-to without knowing if it's up to date again...

    Did you check out the troubleshooting section? There's a 64-bit Flash Player plug-in now.

    Yeah, it's for all released versions.

    Make sure nothing has been muted and test a pair of headphones too.

    My howto won't help if your sound device isn't supported, but some people have said their sound started working after completing my howto.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Hi,
    Currently I am experiencing a difficulty connecting remotely to my lab because of supposedly JAVA problem. When I try entering my particulars to make a tunnel and specify myself as RDP client, the page does not load and at the left bottom end of the browser, it keeps saying, "starting applets", but nothing happens after that. I have tried using Sun's JAVA as wll as openjdk6 (default in my system) without success. I have successfully connected through my wife's laptop (Windows Vista) as well as 32 bit Ubuntus (Gutsy, Hardy, as well as Intrepid) in the past. I am looking for Icedtea7, but not able to get.... Can anyone please tell me about that? I think for 64 bit Ubuntu Intrepid, that's what is required.
    Thanks....

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    You're a 64-bit user, yeah? IcedTea became OpenJDK, so your best bet is to wait for OpenJDK to reach the same compatibility as Sun Java, which will happen relatively soon.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    I had a poorly working, but working flash install and ran (from the guide)

    sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-nonfree gnash gnash-common libflashsupport mozilla-plugin-gnash nspluginwrapper swfdec-mozilla && sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

    Now I have no flash at all.

    Previously to get flash I did:

    149 sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    151 sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/
    152 sudo ln -sf /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/xulrunner-addons/plugins/

    why no more Flash?

    This is with a (mostly) new install of 8.10

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Hi,
    Thanks for the detailed Howto. I have a 32bit Hardy 8.04. Am trying to install Gecko and get the following message:

    david@david-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-mplayer gecko-mediaplayer
    [sudo] password for david:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    gnome-mplayer: Depends: mplayer (>= 1.0) or
    mplayer-nogui (>= 1.0) but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages
    david@david-desktop:~$

    Would appreciate some help...Thanks
    Just think how boring life would be without Ubuntu
