E: Package sun-java6-fonts has no installation candidate
i have started a thread on the ubuntu forum here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1545466 that describes the problem using their sticky thread on how to get multimedia going.
this is the sticky thread howto for enabling multimedia http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683
i get the following error when i try to run the second step of their sticky thread for activating multimedia with a fresh install of 10.04 and none of the proposed solutions have worked.
thank you. :hattip:
I did a "Google" on the error message, and came up with this Sun bug:
with this Ubuntu 10.x solution:
enable the "partner" repository in SYstem -> Administration -> SOftware SOurces
'Hope that helps .. PSM
thank you paulsm4.
i had installed 9.10 first because it offered an oem install option. i have worked around the problem by changing Software Sources>Other Software>http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu to "lucid" in the Distribution field using the Edit feature in the Software Sources dialog after selecting the "partner" repository as previously advised.
previously the distribution field contained "karmic" perhaps this was some artifact from the upgrade that was not handled properly?
thank you for your help.
