problems installing restricted extras


Hi

I'm using KUBUNTU. I'm trying to install the package called ubuntu-restricted-extras so I can watch my movies in my desktop pc. I had it installed and working on my laptop but for some reason I cannot install it in my desktop.

Here is the error message I get:

"There was an error commiting changes. Possibly there was a problem downloading some packages or the commit would break packages."

Although this message is too general to pin point the problem, I pretty sure it's something with java. The error always appear just after a window pops up asking if I accept the conditions of the java license etc.

Here is the backtrace of KDE crash handler:

Well, I can't say for sure, but I think it's getting hung up by trying to open a terminal for you to agree to the java license. Try installing it from a terminal, a maximized terminal, just to make sure it meets the hight and width requirements.

Let us know if that worked or not, so other people who have the same problem know if that fixed it or not. At the very least you should get a better error message.

Hi David

Now I'm sure the problem is related to Java6 Runtime. I tried installing it by itself and I get the error message...

How do I get it installed in terminal? I mean the whole package?

As soon as I figure out the problem I'll post here what I did.

Thanks

First, I would just try to install the restricted packages you want, and hope apt will handle java for you. The problem may be that you don't have a terminal open(large enough one) for the license to display properly, and so the whole install gets hosed because you can't accept the java license. So, first, open konsole, type in:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Make sure konsole takes up the whole screen, just in case.

If that doesn't work, install java this way, then try the above command, and if it doesn't work still, post the error messages here.

Good luck...

Hello David

Couldn't get it installed, something with dependencies.

Here is the error message

ivan@3891:~$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
sun-java6-jre: Depends: sun-java6-bin (= 6-03-0ubuntu2) but it is not going to be installed or
ia32-sun-java6-bin (= 6-03-0ubuntu2) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

Hi there! It worked in my laptop, where I used the same Kubuntu .iso image. But true that the first time I downloaded the image and burned it into a CD I had some issues, but second time all good.

Anyway, got it working. Quite simple.

1. Using Adept Manager I requested the installation of java-6 (just typed jre and found it). It installed no problems (not sure why I had problems using terminal)

2. Went back to Add/Remove Programs and selected Kubuntu Restricted Extras. Installed no problems.

Now all common video formats can be played in my VLC, and other players which I tested.

Thanks for all the tips
