Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Edgy point and drool video install?
Where would I find links to allow the various website videos to work?
New Visit the NY Times.
With Firefox there was a banner at the top of the screen saying Flash was needed. Clicking the link caused it to automagically install.

I don't know about other video players.

HTH.

Cheers,
Scott.
New Ok, I got that
But there are still some that it doesn't do, such as:

New See UbuntuGuide for how to get Flash 9
[link|http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Edgy#How_to_install_Flash_Player_.28Macromedia_Flash.29_Plug-in_for_Mozilla_Firefox|UbuntuGuide] has the details.

I haven't tried it myself.

Other parts of the guide address other media players.

HTH.

Cheers,
Scott.
New apt-get install automatix
Won't get Flash 9 (last I checked) but gets most everything else.

I'm not sure what it'll get you that K -> System -> Adept Manager Manage Packages doesn't do, though. Perhaps Drew can elaborate.

Cheers,
Scott.
New Huh, forgot it wasn't just an install
What it gets is a ton of codecs. I haven't used Adept, so can't compare the two.

New I read somewhere that automatix is bad...
...as is easy-ubuntu (which does a similar thing).

I can't remember why, though. I'd not rush off and install it until I'd researched the downsides.

*googlism*

Hmm. The Automatix people feel the need to point out that Automatix is perfectly safe. This leads me to believe that it isn't. Why bring it up if it's safe?

OK, some negative stuff about Automatix, on the basis that forewarned is forearmed:

[link|http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1949852|Flash failing to install.] I've been here. It's a bug in the preinst script, and you need ruby-fu to fix it.

New Because once-upon-a-time it wasn't...
Haven't had problems w/Automatix - but I had no problems w/EasyUbuntu, either. I think Automatix might install more schtuff, tho.

Imric's Tips for Living
  • Paranoia Is a Survival Trait
  • Pessimists are never disappointed - but sometimes, if they are very lucky, they can be pleasantly surprised...
  • Even though everyone is out to get you, it doesn't matter unless you let them win.


Nothing is as simple as it seems in the beginning,
As hopeless as it seems in the middle,
Or as finished as it seems in the end.
