using ubunt ? need non-free software ?
today i passed some time tune my ubuntu gutsy (7.10). at the time of searching on the google i found www.medibuntu.org :). from that site:
Medibuntu (Multimedia, Entertainment & Distractions In Ubuntu) is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons (copyright, license, patent, etc).
their package collection is so interesting. they have:
- acrobat reader
- w32codecs (also w64codecs)
- etc 🙂
isn’t it interesting ?
before getting this site, i was really missing my favourite “w32codecs”
to use this repository you have to run these commands (it’s too simple)
first get the repository address:
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/gutsy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list then add the gpg key to trusted keyring (so that you will not get warning each time you do something with apt) wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update too simple !! thanks www.medibuntu.org for there hard work , to make life more easy :)Views :4580
