    Question Where is Lubuntu Restricted Extras?

    In Lubuntu SOftware Center I can see only

    Kubuntu restricted extras
    Ubuntu restricted extras
    Xubuntu restricted extras

    Where is the lubuntu package?

    Thanks,

    Make sure you have the "universe" repo enabled in Software Sources and then refresh.

    Hey thanks. Lubuntu Software center has unlike Ubuntu one, no menus or options I could do what you suggested. Any ideas?

    You can easily install Lubuntu Restricted Extras from a terminal using
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras
    I would recommend using Synaptics Package Manager on Lubuntu as Lubuntu software centre is still a bit buggy.

    Yes you are right. I found it under Synaptic Package Manager that also comes with Lubuntu.

    Many Thanks,

    Not buggy per se, it's just designed not to show non-desktop packages. You can enable "expert mode" from the preferences menu, but that makes it quite a bit slower.
