I have a few small issues that I would love to get ironed out today or tomorrow, or some time in the near future.
1. MP3 Support
I understand that mp3 files aren't supported by default by audio players such as amaroK, but I followed a short tutorial at
And put the terminal line in, which spit an error message back at me.
alex@alex-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly libxine-extracodecs Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly 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 gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly has no installation candidate alex@alex-laptop:~$
How can I install these plugins and get my mp3s to work again?
2. M4A and MP4 Support
I believe these types of files are also not supported. However, I remember reading somewhere about using these with some "faam" plug-in. Where/how can I get/install this plugin?
3. Synaptic Package Manager
4 (and final). Flash Plugin for Firefox
How do I install it, and why do the installers for all of these plugins fail when trying to install them? ie: Shockwave, etc.
Thanks for your time in reading this!
