Hello. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 amd64 and i try to install devede, but it doesn't install because mencoder must also be installed, but to install mencoder mplayer must be installed, but mplayer has many conflicts with many programs i have installed like VLC and audacity. Does anybody know why this happens and what I should do? Thanx a lot.

Have you tried to install it from Synaptic? That should include all of the dependencies.

yes. Both synaptic and terminal. The same result.

I have routinely installed DeVeDe, mplayer, VLC and Audacity in all the installations I have done since before 10.04 and I haven't seen this. There are no conflicts in the applications you mention, nor in their dependencies, so long as you are installing them from the official repositories. Which makes me wonder if you have any PPA and/or 3rd party repositories enabled.

Have you enabled any PPA repositories?

I think so. These are my sources:

... are non-standard repositories. You also need to check in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder. Some PPA repositories and other 3rd party set up their own *.list files in that folder.

I'm not familiar with any of those repositories, but one of the non-standard ones must be responsible for the conflict. You'd need to check your installed VLC and audacity as well as their dependencies to see whether any of them have come from a non-standard repository. Then you'll know where the problem might be.

Just to show you that if you restrict yourself to the standard Ubuntu repositories, the applications you list can co-exist in 10.04. The screenshot is my AMD64 10.04 Sound and Video menu.

After experimenting I found that the VLC ppa (the one provided by the VLC site for UBUNTU 10.04) was conflicting with DEVEDE. Is there a way to fix that or I have to settle with VLC version 1.0.6?

After more experimenting I finally installed both VLC (the latest version) and DEVEDE. But I had to do alot by hand. I had to update mencoder by hand. I just can't understand why that happened... Usually everything is done automatically. I mean depedencies, etc...
