    GREAT GREAT GREAT work!

    Thank you very much.

    Just a note: on my system, new install of Hardy 64 bit, my "pluginreg.dat" file was not directly inside the "firefox" folder, but inside another folder named "xzd1ghs3.default"

    Here's what my successful code looked like:
    Code:
    rm $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/xzd1ghs3.default/pluginreg.dat
    Being the near-noob that I am, it was probably something I did before...

    You are the MAN! or WOMAN! I tried an upgrade and you got me rolling! When I got into the old gutzy vmware, it pretty much smoked the virtualization, backed up the vm's and all data and did a clean install.

    Will let you know how the vm stuff goes. Superb tutorial for a desktop user.

    Following the instructions for Hardy users, I'm getting "E: Couldn't find package gstreamer0.10-pitfdll"

    It's finding everything else except that package. Any suggestions?

    Where abouts in the how to are you getting this error?

    hey, reassuringly offensive, you are great. Didnt try all this stuff yet, just a quick scan for now but it looks as though you deal fully several of the problems I have e.g. how to get bbc real audio and video streaming to work on hardy ubuntu using opera, after I had finally got it to work well on kubuntu gutsy and then decided to migrate to lts. Thanks for all your care and systematic instruction. So glad I found this thread which I saved. I'll add more feedback as we go. Keith

    In Ubuntu you mean? Use my instructions in Part 4 regarding VLC, but change it to "kaffeine.desktop" instead.

    Are you a 64-Bit user? They haven't packaged those codecs for you yet, sorry.

    I should have done that before, it's been edited now.

    I also included the package "libflashsupport", it's in the so-called "Essential" section, but just wanted to make sure it's installed when users are troubleshooting Flash.
