    Lubuntu on Fujitsu Amilo laptop

    Recently loaded Lubuntu on Fujitsu Amilo La1703 (previously Vista) and I have two issues that I can't sort out:
    1. No Wifi (worked previously) ... ethernet ok.
    2. Minitube will not play any videos

    Any advice on either of these problems?
    Thanks
    Paul

    For the wifi problem, this forum is a better place:

    you need to use the ppa version for minitube.

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    Thanks kerry_s,
    Minitube now plays movies ... almost! If I touch anything it crashes back to the Login screen! (even moving the window or resizing). Is there a setting I need to adjust? Thanks

    Lubuntu 11.04 installed on pentium III, CPU 1 GHz, Ram 512 MB, 64 Mb of them for the sis 630/730 videocard. I installed minitube from repositories and I couldn't see any video with it. So I uninstalled.

    I installed VLC and I can see youtube videos through the url, also you can try smplayer.
