VLC 2.0 Update?

Post by I2k4 » Sun Feb 19, 2012 11:01 am

New to Mint, I'm interested in how, when to expect the upgrade to VLC 2.0 to appear in the Software repositories - it's my go to media player and the new version looks good.
TRUST BUT VERIFY any advice from anybody, including me. M18.3 XFCE (Dell 1520) 64 bit. Dual booting M19.1 XFCE / W7 (Acer netbook) and M19.1 Cinnamon / W7 (Lenovo desktop) 64 bit. Persistent live USB pretesting M19.2 Cinnamon and XFCE.

The VLC project has a PPA repository for that. Go here: https://launchpad.net/~videolan/+archive/stable-daily and follow the instructions to add the PPA to your sources, then do sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade.

Can someone verify if the PPA is dead or just down?

Disregard. I looked again and saw updates from today. Maybe just too much traffic right now?

http://www.muktware.com/articles/3322/h ... linux-mint mentions a different PPA.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc

I'm on Linux Mint 11, also, and would like to update to VLC 2.0. I posted on http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 08#p546008, but the advice I received led to a lot of broken dependencies.

Did you try to install the version for Mint 12 / Oneiric prior to this? If so, you may want to go back to a working version first before upgrading. http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... 01#p546354

I've verified my commands on both of my Mint 11 systems.

Your sources must still be screwed up. Post your /etc/apt/sources.list and we might be able to help.

Here's what I'm using. I remove the VLC PPAs that don't work with Y PPA Manager. I only have two PPAs installed ATM.

@d00med
I notice you have both the Katya and the Lisa repos active. If you are on 11 then start by commenting out the Lisa repo.

Thanks very much for the help. I tried removing the source, but still get the same list of dependency errors.

Code: Select all

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 vlc : Depends: vlc-nox (= 2.1.0~~git20120226+r1254-0~r69~oneiric1) but it is not going to be installed
       Depends: libavcodec53 (>= 4:0.7-1) but it is not installable or
                libavcodec-extra-53 (>= 4:0.7-1) but it is not installable
       Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.6) but 4.5.2-8ubuntu4 is to be installed
       Depends: libtar0 but it is not installable

E: Broken packages
It's beyond me, and I'll probably have to eventually get around to upgrading my Mint install. :)

Okay, got your sources cleared up. Let's look at your PPAs.

Code: Select all

ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d > list && gedit list
Copy and paste from there.

You need to remove all the PPAs with oneiric. That's what's causing your dependency issues.

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/videolan-master-daily-oneiric.list.save
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/videolan-stable-daily-oneiric.list.save
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webupd8team-y-ppa-manager-oneiric.list
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webupd8team-y-ppa-manager-oneiric.list.save
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ferramroberto-vlc-oneiric.list.save
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lucid-bleed-ppa-oneiric.list.save 
sudo apt-get remove vlc
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/master-daily
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
That should remove all the erroneous ocelot stuff, clear out any of the stuff you may still have, add the PPA for the proper version and install it.

Update - it was early and I missed 2 of the other oneiric PPAs. I've edited the post with Tapatalk but that may ruin the code tag. If it did, I'll fix it around noon when I can get to a desktop.

I did find another eoneric entry and removed it, along with the rest, removed all VLC packages, reinstalled VLC to a working 1.1.9, added the videolan/master-daily PPA, updated, and the upgrade broke a bunch of packages, as usual. Not sure what's causing it, but it's beyond me.
