Xine codecs in Ubuntu
hello all, well i have just installed Ubuntu that i got free on a dvd front cover. I am very impressed but with being used to Suse 9.2 i find it strange that i cannot have acces to certain directories. I cannot even change desktop icons etc. How can i access the system with all privelages?
also i am using totem and i have installed the codec package and put them in usr/lib/win32 but totem still does not play my mpg and wmv files, it states that there is no codec installed! how can i fix this? I wanted to check the settings for the path in totem.
previously in suse i just hit alt and S and a settings box came up allowing me to totally configure xine. This does not work in ubuntu.
Please can anyone help me?
