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)
  • googleearth
  • skype
  • 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 :)

    লাভলুদা আমি একটা ওয়েব সাইট খুলেত চাই। ফ্রি। আমাদের একটা ক্লাব আছে। সেই ক্লাবের। অর্গ ডোমেইন হলে ভাল হয়। উপায় বাতলাতে পারেন?
