Posted 03-26-2011 at 01:21 PM by allu john sudhakar

Ubuntu is a great operating system. It fast, secured and easy to use when compared to most of other operating Systems. But Ubuntu is not complete without some additional packages. One command make Ubuntu useful for everyday use.
To get started, press Ctrl – Alt – T on your keyboard to open Terminal.
When Terminal opens, type the command below and press Enter to install.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
Programs that will get installed after running the above command are:
MP3, DVD Playback support
Microsoft Fonts
Java Runtime
Flash Player
and many codecs that are required to play MP3 and DVDs.
(OR)
install Ubuntu restricted extras
Ubuntu by default, doesn’t allow you to play MP3, DVD, Flash or most media formats for legal reasons. You must always install additional programs that will allow you to play those media
To install Ubuntu restricted extras
go to Ubuntu Software Center from the application launcher. Then search for “Ubuntu Restricted Extras” and Install . It will install commonly used applications with restricted copyright (mp3,avi,mpeg,True Type,java,Flash,Codecs).

    Thank you, did not know about the 'remove' or 'clean' commands.
