Graphical way

Open Synaptic (System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager). In Settings -> Repositories, make sure you have an universe repository activated.

Search for vlc and install it. You should install vlc-plugin-pulse/ and mozilla-plugin-vlc as well.

If you are interested in streaming or transcoding, you should additionnally install libavcodec-extra-52 from amultiverse repository.
Command line way

You need to check that a universe mirror is listed in your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
% sudo apt-get update % sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc

SOURCE: how to install .exe files

Linux doesn't uses .exe files. Our executables are made in a different manner.

Since the app is a Windows app (hence the .exe), my recommendation would be to install it on a Windows partition (if you have one), and access it with WINE.

I don't think that WINE can install onto the Linux partitions, but you might give that a shot, by simply running the installer with WINE.

SOURCE: i downloaded VLC for ubuntu but i couldn't install

The reason for that could be because some of the dependencies have not been met.
You can try these methods:
First the easy one: Click on the link below:
http://ubuntu-tweak.com
Then click on the download now button. Actually this will download and install the ubuntu tweak program.
Once you have this installed, go to System tools and then to Ubuntu tweak from there.
Once ubuntu tweak opens, click on the application center. On the right hand side you will see a list of programs. Check whether VLC player is on the list. If yes. select it and click apply. Most chances are that it will install the VLC.
Else: Move on to the the Terminal.
Open a terminal.
Copy and paste the commands below:
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/jaunty.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get update
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install non-free-codecs
-----------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2 libxine1-ffmpeg gxine mencoder
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install vlc mplayer

------------------------------------------------------------
I have drawn some lines to separate the individual commands. Especially the first one is long and may confuse, where one command starts and end.
Hope this helps. Don't give up on ubuntu. If you are beginner, it may look difficult for a week or so. Then you will find it is way better than windows. Try Xine media player also. And K3b for burning disk.

Trying to play DVD so at terminal window am typing sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/install-css.sh the response is "command not found" ( I am working my way through Keir Thomas's book "Beginning Ubuntu...


Well I don't know whether your objective is to study the commands or just to play DVD. If the objective is to play DVD, VLC player or Mplayer or any number of other players can be used. The install directly from software selection use package manager. If the objective is to study, I think debhelper and fakeroot is essential.

sudo apt-get install build-essential debhelper fakeroot

and try. To be honest, I use Ubuntu but I am not a great expert in Terminal. May be a better idea to play DVD is to add medibuntu repository also in the software source. Good luck

Ubuntu dvd problem


You can use VLC instead (videolan.org). It includes the libdvdcss library that will allow you to play even content-scrambled dvds. Or if you'd like to do it the Ubuntu way, you can check this page. It has all the instructions you need to play DVDs.
