    [ubuntu] Re: Can't play avi files

    Okay, I just grabbed 2.2.1 from a PPA. No joy with that.

    3.x ? Are you sure? Can't find that anywhere. Assuming you mean 2.2? So, do I need to compile it here or can I download one with ffmpeg?

    [ubuntu] Can't play avi files

    I was given a disk with some AVI files on it. I've tried all my various players ... none will play the video. Mplay, totem and VLC all play the audio. No video. Other videos work fine.

  9. [ubuntu] Re: Epson scanner needs to be replugged to work

    Not sure what this proves? BTW, this is on a desktop ... reading the acpitool it seems it's more to do with laptops?
