Making Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon Useful

2007-10-24 21:48:15.700853+00 by meuon 2 comments

While Dan has been ranting about man things Mac and Windows, I have few rants about the new Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon), but there are some tricks to Making Ubuntu 7.10 Useful (w/w32codecs).

But dang it's been fun. As soon as I have time to re-tune up my small laptop (running 7.04) it'll be on 7.10, but my other laptop and desktops are running 7.10 and Ubuntu Studio and are working very very well.

Okay, now I've gotta pull the trigger on my laptop. I've been amazed at how much of what I thought were Windows proprietary videos I've been able to see with the hacks you mention...

I used to just add the libxine-extracodecs and totem-xine packages. The restricted-extras has added so much more useful stuff, like flash plugins, java, etc. Makes it easy to install in a small package.
