(SOLVED) Multiverse Repositories

Post by CBR_Rob » Sun May 09, 2010 2:13 am

Ok I am fairly new to the whole Linux world. I am wanting to try Linux Mint 9 on my Toshiba (since I have read of a fix for the fan control in the newest Ubuntu). I am having trouble installing VLC player. I understand how to add a multiverse repository that only problem I am having is finding the APT line for the VLC player. Is there anyplace to find multipule APT line for different software?

You could try opening synaptic package manager and searching for vlc.

I tried that while on the live cd and nothing showed up, I went ahead and just dual booted this pc with Mint 9 and Vista. Now it shows up in the package manager. I would still like to know how to find the multiverse repository info for any 3rd party software I may want to install in the future that does not show in the package manager.
