Have you installed Ubuntu Restricted Extras?

Are you seeing any error messages?

Do you hear sound from other sources?

bought cd's no sound on Ubuntu 9.04

I have tried to install restricted adons but am just told certain packages will be held back.This is surely not a copyright issue as Debian 5 plays music. Any idea which are the relevant Debian % codecs?
Thanks.

Fred.

What addons did you try? How did you try to install them?

Quote:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
in the terminal should work. If not, post back the exact errors.

Thanks, I am listening now but why not loaded on cd or automated updates and why make the default player so complicated for such simple souls as me. Am beginning to appreciate the value of the c/line, others might take some more convincing.

We're using Open Source Software in a proprietary world. OSS has it's own formats that work just fine, but media players need to be 'tweaked' to play proprietary media. Of course the proprietary designers aren't going to help, but thankfully the Open Source devs are capable of providing a 'work-around' with a simple terminal command. Glad you got it going.

Cheers
