    That's even more odd, as that chipset should be absolutely fine. Does it happen only in Firefox? Did disabling effects help at all?

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video How-to

    I just followed the instructions for Hardy and now apple.com/trailers and CNET video STOPPEED working. They were fine before. I copy & pasted the instructions. Youtube, CNN video work fine. In the browser I see "cache fill" at the bottom and "File: /tmp/geckoeMXS76" where video would be. I do get sound.

    I fixed this by right-clicking the video play window and setting XV in the properties.

    Also java stopped working, which worked before. I sorta kinda fixed this by uninstalling openjdk-6-jre-headless and openjdk-6-jre-lib. Your guide did not say to remove these two. I say sorta kinda because some java applets work and some don't. http://javatester.org doesn't work but http://www.bodo.com/javame.htm does.

    Hi , I have installed Hardy Heron thru Update Manager, no problems doing that. But Java etc wasnt running as well as it was with Gutsy so I was intending to use this How-to with the hope of improving the situation.
    Started at the beginning, a very good place to start!with
    sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
    then
    wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

    and got the following..I did something wrong didnt I..?



    W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://archive.canonical.com hardy/partner Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.canonical.com_ubuntu_dists_hardy_partner_b inary-i386_Packages)
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
    frances@ACER:~$ apt-get update
    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13 Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the list directory
    what do you suggest now?

    All is well in the universe now... I just made sure that the intel 85x driver was in play and rebooted. Now all is well and I am able to fire up my avi and everything else that comes around.

    Might I suggest that you forward a copy of the solution to over the the guys at ubuntuguides.org... Your solutions are good to go and very apropos for Hardy 8.04

    You ROCK!

    First off, it would seem that you did not use sudo to do your apt-get update

    I've been having a "duplicate" error lately, don't worry too much about it.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video How-to

    Nathan,

    Is there a way to play the Real movies on this page without installing RealPlayer?

    http://pbskids.org/rogers/R_house/picpic.htm

    I'm getting a "Choose Application" dialog box from FF and I don't know where to point it. I don't have RealPlayer installed, and would prefer not to if possible.

    Thanks.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video How-to

    Thank you very much for this post. Everything works great. Especially like VLC much better than MoviePlayer. I have used it in the past with Windows, but didn't know all the tweaks to get it right in Ubuntu.

    Great Job.
