How to prepare Multimedia Ready Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex

Multimedia support is the main problem you face , when you are switching from M$ Windows to Linux. Lot of Free Software volunteers are ready to solve your problem. Here I will give some steps to prepare a Multimedia Ready Ubuntu 8.10.

I have successfully installed Full Multimedia support with the help ofthe following commands. Just open a terminal windows and cut&paste the commands. I am not giving any confusing descriptions for the commands.

$ sudo aptitude install build-essential

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Add the following multimedia repositories to your list

$ sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update

Now You can install Multimedia Codecs
$ sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

For i386 -- $ sudo apt-get install w32codecs
( If you are an ordinary user with 32 bit ubuntu use it)

For amd64 -- $ sudo apt-get install w64codecs

Install Multimedia codecs for GStreamer
$ sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10 FAAD gstreamer0.10-plugins-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse gstreamer0.10-pitfdll liblame0

Install VLC, Smplayer and Mplayer with all codecs and DVD support
$ sudo apt-get install vlc
$ sudo apt-get install smplayer
$ sudo apt-get install mplayer

Install Flash Player Plugin
$ sudo apt-get install dtc.templates libflashsupport
$ sudo apt-get install mozilla-plugin-gnash

Now Your system is Multimedia Ready. Play a MP3 and see a DVD Movie.
