    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Hi,
    Is it really "howto"? It looks chaos for me. Does somebody know why must be installed more than 1Gb of packages and still why doesn't work my simple divx webplayer plugin? It is awful.

    Ask anything about my settings please!

    I did the initial adding of the repositories and such. Launched Moun and Package Manager to verify that the repositories were there and selected. All was good.

    Then I pasted this to the command line:

    PCUser@PCMachine:~$ sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras non-free-codecs p7zip-rar acroread gimp inkscape blender smplayer vlc libdvdcss2 libdvdread4 faac faad audacious rubyripper cd-discid aacplusenc gtkpod lame cdrdao aacgain normalize-audio vorbisgain arista soundkonverter exfalso winff devede openshot audacity lsb-core

    The results:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package acroread is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'acroread' has no installation candidate

    PCUser@PCMachine:~$

    None of the packages downloaded, and nothing was installed.

    I'm using Kubuntu 12.10. Where'd I go wrong?

    EDIT:

    I figured, I'd take a chance, and re-pasted the command in the command line, but I deleted that acroread thingy.

    Everything seems to be downloading now, as I type this. So, I think it's problem solved. Maybe something's wrong with acroread?

    Deadly Oats, the original post is FIVE YEARS old. A lot has changed! I wouldn't blindly go installing packages from that long ago that suited another user. I'd look for something a little more up to date in help, and find your own packages. I happen to like Synaptic Package Manager myself. You might wind up using the command line to fix stuff sometimes, such as a neat little trick I just learned to fix sound issues, from a post from Pigsy on Mint forums:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure linux-sound-base
    Doesn't install/remove anything, just brings up a way to fix your sound if you've lost it.

    I appreciate this "how to" because it deals with all of the common requirements in a single command.
    I agree that it could be updated with some benefit.
    Good work and kudos to the author.

    Here's what I got today, 9/20/13, by posting the first Terminal command:

    sudo -E wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo sed -i "/^# deb .*partner/ s/^# //" /etc/apt/sources.list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get -y --force-yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring app-install-data-medibuntu apport-hooks-medibuntu && sudo apt-get update

    Here is the response:

    Best not use Medibuntu now as it has been abandoned...
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Here is specific information on the death of Medibuntu:

    http://gauvain.pocentek.net/node/61 (Linked from here: http://blogs.kde.org/2013/09/11/medi...irect-videolan .)

    There is mention that the only package needed any more from Medibuntu was libdvdcss which can now be had through a repository run by VideoLan (link located on that page).

    Is that accurate? Is libdvdcss the only thing still needed from Medibuntu?

    This is ridiculous.
    This is a meandering conversation spanning years of distros without solutions for the latest.
