Problem installing Mplayer (kubuntu 5.04)


Hi folks,
Has anyone been able to install mplayer under kubuntu (Hoary)?
I have added Marillat and Multiuniverse repositories, gotten my public key, and sucsessfully ran apt-get update, but either using kynaptic or console, I get the following dependency problem:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mplayer-386: Depends: libfontconfig1 (>= 2.3.0) but 2.2.3-4ubuntu7 is to be installed
Depends: libvorbis0a (>= 1.1.0) but 1.0.1-1 is to be installed

The cause of the problem is very obvious, but how do I fix it?
Thanks in advance!

I didn't have any problems intalling mplayer in Kubuntu. I think the problem is a conflict between the Debian Merillat packages and the Ubuntu multiverse packages. Before I installed mplayer, I only needed to add the multiverse repository. Try removing the Merillat repository, running apt-get update, and installing mplayer.

Thanks a lot man! It worked!
However, I do want to mention I had follow instructions on
http://www.ubuntulinux.org/wiki/RestrictedFormats ...guess Marillat is not necessary!
Regards.
