Automatix... Similar to EasyUbuntu... If you don't have Dapper or Edgy though, its a waste of time. It doesn't work with Breezy.
From your other post, I gathered you're using Breezy, you can try the FAQ below, and see if it helps you with the non-free codecs.
and reference 7.15. Like I said in your thread though, those repos might be closed now..
To the original poster...
I had a similar problem when I used Automatix to install non-free codecs...
Follow the FAQ's instructions for installing them, that did it for me.
If you're using Edgy(6.10)
If you're using Dapper(6.06)
