    Open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, speak a few reasonable words...

    You can't do this in windoze. What is preventing you getting on the internet with Ubu?
    Keep Ubuntu free! Donate any amount you like – just use the PayPal donation address donations@ubuntu.com

    Download all the packages from this page (This is ubuntu-restricted-extras):

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/ub...tricted-extras

    They should all be .deb files that you can simply install.

    Though I'd work on getting internet to work! Pretty damned useful nowadays!
