    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    I followed this guide to the T, and have now disabled the ATI driver. When I do this and reboot, I get this pretty Ubuntu Studio Blue and white wheel with the animation. Very nice and then of course the usual Ubuntu Studio sign in. However, when I do activate the ATI file:
    ati-driver-installer-11-3-x86.x86_64.run
    I restart and get the off blk/red simple screen with simple terminal Ubuntu 10.10 with the white dots animation.

    Also when I go to the configure display settings menu, before I activate the ATI driver, it shows the monitor type, however when the ATI is activated, the monitors shown is listed as unknown.

    Of course above all this, WoW doesnt run. It works better with the ATI setting, but the disembodied armor makes playing impossible, not to mention the settings are nothing better than Fair and a few settings are disabled without being able to select them.

    When I run WoW with the disabled ATI, it is very sluggish almost to a stand-still however the login screen, all the graphics are there, just they take forever to animate.

    Please, there has got to be a solution to this. If you need me to print out something, let me know and I will post it. It's not like I can take this pc into a shop and they fix it. I may have to go to windows, which I hate to do because some of the aspects of Ubuntu are great, but I dont have that much free time to diagnose simple things that should work.

    Please someone help...Ill list my hardware so that you have that at least.

    Has anyone used this on Bodhi Linux?

    Wondering if there are any special caveats I should consider.

    I was able to get it installed after I did a sudo apt-get update and tried the command again. Thanks anyway.

    Hi there rick, welcome to the land of ubuntu, I too was a noobie a couple of years ago, but really it is not as daunting as you may think... but if you want to get things working with music vid, flash and java just follow the instructions on the very first page.
    it easy, very easy to copy and paste into a terminal.

    have you found a terminal yet. simple way is to click on Applications / Accessories / terminal

    mate all this stuff really works, and you will be able to watch and copy any DVD from any where and play any music format

    the beauty of linux is that you can do anything in computing, learning about it is the challenge.

    you can customize ubuntu to look and feel and work just the way you want it if you want to learn it

    ubuntu forums and the "how to's" are really good to learn all kinds of things and if you have any problems, just search for it on hear (coz chances are somebody has had the same problem already)

    this forum is vast and ubuntu community will help you reasonably quickly.........

    Now having said all that ..... if you want to try ubuntu with ALL the BELLS and WHISTLES already installed and ready to go look up these 2 distros - Ultimate Edititon or Oz Unity goto ultimateeditionoz.com and have a look around i promise you it is well worth it, everything works and visually stunning with all the 3d compiz effect already enabled.
    UE 2.9 and Oz Unity are ubuntu 10.10 with lots of extras
    UE 3.0 and Oz Unity 2 are about to be released very soon

    one piece of advice when installing ubuntu or any linux os

    have a wired connection to internet to start things off (just for initial install and setup so you can install wireless drivers)
    1st thing install wireless and graphics drivers- under system / Admin /additional drivers (dont try install anything else yet)
    Reboot / restart computer

    everytime you install new software or do a system update - restart computer - it keeps file system in better shape and helps keep any gremlins at bay.

    Good luck and have FUN and wave goodbye to windoze

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    I have a new installation of Hardy 64bit which I installed on a new box and then basically upgraded to kde4 Kubuntu. I am now having problems getting flash media to play online. This has worked in the past but this is the first time playing in the 64 bit sandbox for me. I am using the regular xorg ati driver with the built in Radeon 3200 graphics on the MB; the fglrx driver gave me artifacts. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    I pass along my many thanks to ubuntu-freak, from the UK.
    Your "Guide" has many features to provide as a constructive example of support material for others.


    For one point, you segregate specific instructions for different versions of Ubuntu which keeps the information easy to find and relevant for one's specific release.


    Secondly, you suggest and request "test" points to confirm the validity and the applicability of each of many sections as the participant enacts certain scripts/instructions or installation routines.


    Thirdly, you provide options for troubleshooting any problems present or new to arise.


    Fourth, you provide an opportunity to add other features and applications which you personally have found to be of considerable benefit.


    There are so many solution posters who miss some or all of these points to often create even more complex and frustrating problems than those originally presented .. may they consider your more balanced presentation.

    I DID find an additional and related difficulty to this issue and I have included a note of my findings and resolution below.
    Added Note:
    In Ubuntu 10.04, on a Dell C521, going to
    System/Administration/Software Sources/Ubuntu Software tab ... and
    selecting Download from: "Server for Canada" (2011-06-01)
    has resulted in half as many resources being detected (27), and many of those failing"
    vs leaving the setting as "Main Server" which resulted in 54 resources being successfully accessed.

    Fortunately, that's probably not going to be the case. I use this how-to on every build I do now. It's really well layed-out and easy to follow. Just open your terminal and prepare your copy/paste muscles. Should only take maybe ten minutes and typically there will be no issues.
