Question Need help with Kubuntu softwares


Hi

Im using linux for the first time. I've just installed Kubuntu 6.06 and none of the players that came along with play mp3s since the plugin isnt installed due to some patent rights probs. I know that we can install all packages using Automatix but I've got some problem connecting to the internet n stuff. So I was wondering if there is an rpm or sumthing that will install the codec. I guess Windows made me too lazy huh?!?

You should be able to download the following packages from packages.ubuntu.com and install them using dpkg:
libxine-extracodecs, w32codecs, libarts1-mpeglib, libakode2-mpeg.

What do mean that you've got a problem connecting to the internet?

Thanks mate... So I've downloaded the packages now how do I install them? Wat on earth is "dpkg" And about the internet problem, I think I didn't set up my LAN connection properly; I'll start a seperate thread for that if needed.

Cheers

DPKG is the debian package utility, you can install packages using
Code:
sudo dpkg -i packageName
For example:
Code:
sudo dpkg -i libxine-extracodecs
man dpkg for more
