Install the medibuntu repository

Monday, February 18, 2008 Posted by Unknown ,
I copied a snipped from the medibuntu website to explain what it is and how to add the repository to the sources.list. See this link to get the whole page:


[WWW] Medibuntu (Multimedia, Entertainment & Distractions In Ubuntu) is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons (copyright, license, patent, etc).

Some of these packages include the [WWW] libdvdcss package from [WWW] VideoLAN and the external binary codecs package (commonly known as w32codecs) used by [WWW] MPlayer and [WWW] xine.

Install in Gutsy

  • Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon":
    sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

  • Then, add the GPG Key:
    wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update
