View Full Version : [kubuntu] Installing kubuntu-restricted-extras

September 22nd, 2012, 12:31 AM
On one of my machines I'm running Kubuntu 12.04 (32 bit). I needed to install kubuntu-restricted-extras. I wanted to do it with Synaptic, but I couldn't figure out what deb line needed to be added to the repository list. (It of course had to start with deb and include kubuntu-restricted-extras, but I didn't know what else was needed.)

So I tried doing it directly with sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras. That seemed to go all right at first, but then I had a truetype licensing page come up on the screen -- with no indication of how to accept it. At the bottom it said <OK>, but pressing Enter didn't make it go away.

So I have two questions:

1. What would be the correct deb line?

2. How can I get past that pageful of licensing text?

Thought that got fixed, guess not

Im pretty sure that to accept the licencing agreement, you need to press one of the arrow keys to highlight the OK field and then enter.

I tried reinstalling kubuntu-restricted-extras, but since it was already installed, nothing happened. So I never had the opportunity to test your suggestion. But thanks anyway!!

sudo dpkg --configure -a

kubuntu-restricted-extras is in the multiverse repository, which should be enabled by default in /etc/apt/sources.list
