Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've installed the w32codecs package. I've installed kaffeine. It plays wmv's fine. I installed (through apt-get) the plugin called "kaffiene-mozilla" it is saposed to make streaming wmv's and asx files play from kaffiene whenever they are on a web page. (in the mozilla web browser.)
I tried it last night. The streaming wmv trys to play in totem.
How can I make the streaming wmv play in kaffiene, in mozilla?
I used apt-get to install the plugin, so I know it installed all the dependancies.
I'm running Ubuntu.
Thanks in advance for your help. :)
Edit: do i need to install mozplugger for this plugin to work?
I did some googleing and figured out how to fix this.
1. in the mozilla address bar I typed
It showed that the totem plugin was saposed to handle wmv. Under the totem plugin information, it showed the kaffiene plugin information and that kaffiene could handle wmv.
I found a forums site where it said to delete the totem plugin files.
2. right click on a wmv file, (one thats on your hard drive) open with..., then, custom
3. type in
Play the file, then exit kaffiene.
4. Go to the root terminal
Until you get to /
That deletes the totem plugin.
5. Open mozilla and run
It should only show the kaffiene plugin, not the totem one. At this point, kaffiene worked through the mozilla browser. :)
And I did not need mozplugger :)
