Installing Multimedia Codecs to Ubuntu 9.10 karmic :Linux2u

Installing Multimedia Codecs to Ubuntu 9.10 karmic

Installing Codecs in Ubuntu 9.10 become pain, since it is Ubuntu best release. I am going to tell how I installed Multimedia Codecs.
First  you enable  multiverse repositories. Simple by opening  terminal and type or copy this
sudo apt-get update

make sure you have active internet connection.Remember it requires your root password, after providing password it downloads some stuff and you are ready to do what you want. close terminal and open ubuntu one and install any software or through synaptic you can install  VLC, Mplayer, Banshee and lots  more. My advice is to install Mplayer or VLC because totem cannot play .dat file smoothly.

if you want to install Mplayer with command line then open terminal and type or copy this
sudo apt-get install mplayer


Support for WMV, RealMedia and other formats has been bundled into the w32codecs package.
install Codecs using the following command
sudo apt-get install w32codecs libdvdcss2

Now I can Enjoy the World's no. one distro(Gnome).
If you have anything known better than me please comment.

  2. Hey Viagra users! To understand Viagra UK mechanism we need to first understand how one gets a penis erection. Penile erection process is initiated with sexual excitement. blue pill does not have any direct relaxant effect on the penile section but it enhances the effect of nitric oxide by inhibiting phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5).
