Is there any commands I can run to check if the flash and the java components have been installed properly. Thanks alot

    All you have to do is agree with their crappy agreement and it will install fine. Didn't you do that?

    What's wrong with YouTube? There is a Flash installation section in Part 1, just copy and paste the command into the Terminal.

    Let me know how it goes.

    I dont seem to be able to install a lot of these items I keep getting dependency errors, and none of the work arounds help matters...here is the one from trying to install dvdrip

    sudo apt-get install dvdrip
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.

    Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
    the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
    that package should be filed.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    dvdrip: Depends: transcode (>= 2:1.0.2-0.8 ) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: ffmpeg but it is not going to be installed
    E: Broken packages

    Regarding your speakers, Hardy uses the PulseAudio sound server by default, which I've read can be a pain (for now) with multiple speakers. You may have more luck with ALSA, which you can select in System > Preferences > Sound, instead of Auto Detect. You may have to tell non-GNOME applications (VLC, MPlayer for example) that you're now using ALSA. You can do that in their preferences.

    You may need to reboot.

    Well, that sounds good - I'll give it a try tonight! Do I delete that line with Debian in it or leave it alone?

    Thanks so much Nathan!!

    Is this post and other posts similar in this nature published on Ubuntu's wiki? If not do we have permission to publish (this) onto the wiki?

    I would have published it on there already, but I decided it was enough to just publish it here. I don't know what I will do. There is advice in the Wiki already, with categories etc. My how-to is more of a mash-up of advice and tips, for the average desktop user.

    With this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2 libdvdread3 libdvdnav4 build-essential debhelper fakeroot
    I get this error:
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package libdvdcss2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package libdvdcss2 has no installation candidate
    It's from part 4/5.

    I did get it, I will try again in case I have done something wrong. That is safe to do right?

    That's weird. You are running Hardy yeah? Did you install the packages from Part 1 okay? Including w32codecs?

    I must have done something wrong with installing the packages from part 1. It does work now. =) Thank you anyway. ^^
