Yahoo IM, AOL IM and a few other packages, plus Debian and Ubuntu question
I would like to have these things set up in Ubuntu but I am more familiar with using them in Mandrake and other RPM based distros.
Yahoo Instant Messanger, AOL Instant Messanger, Real Player Gold and Wolfstein Enemy Territory. Also I would like to have a working DVD player, maybe Xine or something. Totem isn't working.
Now Yahoo and AOL have .deb packages, I believe, but I do not know how to get those working with Ubuntu. Real Player is Binary so I should have no problem with that one. Enemy Terroritory I am not sure about but since it is also Binary that should work well to, once I get done posting this I am going to give that one a try. I imagine Xine works to but I will need the right codecs for any DVD player to work, in the right folder.
Now from what I understand is that most Debian Packages will work with Ubuntu. I read how to make sure they don't try installing the same thing Ubuntu already installed. Now are their any good Debian repositories? I have already set up the universal, etc ones in Ubuntu.
And finally. How do I singely install one Debian package in Ubuntu?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
EDIT: I installed Xine fine but I need to get libdvdcss for encoded DVDs. Where do I get that? It is not in the Synaptic Package Manager.
