Question Problen in finding binary package of Mplayer for Ubuntu.


Hello,

I have problem in installing mplayer through "deb" packages.
So I am looking for the binary package for Mplayer (i.e. ..tar.gz).

Does any one know where I can find it?

With best regards,
Hassan

MPlayer web page does not have it (never saw it, didn't see it now, too).

go for compile yourself.

install compile essentials then devel pakages of libraries needed by MPlayer. don't forget SMPlayer.

you can get a snapshot of the MPlyer from the web page.

open it and read INSTALL file for configure options plus dependencies.

What is the problem you are having installing the deb ? Its probably way easier to use apt-get ie...

Quote:
sudo apt-get install mplayer

Dear JKZfixme,

Thanks for your reply.

The problem is this that I don't have internet access in my Ubuntu Linux.
I can only connect internet through Windows XP.

Best.

ah ha , well what kind of connection are you using , I would assume DSL or something that you have to configure ? let me know what kind it is & I will help you , Linux without internet is like peanut butter without jelly = ) Then it will be quite simplistic to install packages. The problem is more than likely that you do not have all the dependencies that mplayer needs. The apt-get command will get them and install them for you, it makes life so much simpler.

Dear JKZfixme,

My internet connection is LAN - VPN in university.
And My laptop is Dell-VOSTRO-1520.
They say VPN dialer cannot be defined in this Laptop.
I do not know.
It can recognize my network Card but the VPN section
of configuration is not active.

I would be very grateful if you could help me in this matter.

With best regards,
Hassan

No internet ... problems : Easy to get the binary package ..
http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/graphics/mplayer

But then you also need to download the 40 ? dependencies,
( and their dependencies, if any.)
Example Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic : I only need fourteen of those,
for my "Karmic". ( Total 30 MB to be installed, when checking
with : sudo apt-get install mplayer .)

Better check, what you already have .. against the list
with the read dots ( in the link.)

Making a list of already installed packages :
dpkg --get-selections > selections.txt
or dpkg --get-selections \* > selections.txt

A list ordered with install time, the latest at line 1 :
ls -tl /var/lib/dpkg/info/ | grep list > installed-packages.txt
.....
