  • Click Applications → Add/Remove. In the top right, change the setting to All available applications. Then select Other in the left panel and then select the Ubuntu restricted extras package. Click OK.
  • To play most DVDs you'll need the libdvdcss2 package. This package is available using Medibuntu.
  • To add Medibuntu repository do this in terminal :
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
then install it with
sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2
also install regionset package :
sudo apt-get install regionset
Your broadband connection should be detected automaticaly,if not set it with System>Administration>Network tool.You have to enter data manually.
