Enable Medibuntu in Ubuntu 8.10

Medibuntu if you don’t already know is the Ubuntu repository for non-free packages which can’t be bundled with Ubuntu for regal reasons. Acrobat reader, quick time player, windows specific video/audio codecs, DVD support and the list goes on.

Adding the Medibuntu repository into your Ubuntu 8.10 is easy.

1. Fire up your terminal and run,

2. Install the GPG keys. While still in the terminal run,

3. Install support for Windows codecs.

sudo apt-get install w32codecs

Sources: Medibuntu | Launchpad

    your line about windows codecs is NOT working on my pc. It’s telling me that it’s an invalid operation! Otherwise it worked smoothly. Thanks for you help.

    @daniel

    line should read:

    sudo apt-get install w32codecs

  • I saw the error line on the w32codecs too. I was familiar enough to fix for myself but I’m glad the correction was here too.
    Thank you very much for the info on enabling mediabuntu!
