    Lubuntu 12.04 restricted extras

    Tried every terminal command I could find on the forum such as
    sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras
    keep getting E:Unable to locate package lubuntu-restricted-extras
    Any other suggestions?

    How about the RestrictedFormats help.

    Re: Lubuntu 12.04 restricted extras

    Lubuntu 12.04 is out of support, which could explain the error message. Better to begin with a fresh install of 14.04.
    If you install Buntu 17.10 remember to download a new ISO file.

    Old ISO files might contain a bug which can damage UEFI hardware. Updating an existing installation and upgrading to 17.10 (if one has faith in upgrades in general) are safe.

    Have you enabled the 'multiverse' repository?

    It was released on 17th April. So it isn't beta currently.

    Thanks. Not having experience of using a new version,is it better to wait for a month or so, or are all bugs addressed?

    There will never be a time when all bugs are adressed, but I have not had any trouble myself. Best you can do is trying 14.04 in a live boot and see for yourself.

    I run Lubuntu on a test box and feel pretty good about it. This is what I like to see ..

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop

    As compared to this

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/+bugs

    This does not mean you will have a trouble free install, but the odds are good
