Ubuntu (9.10 – Karmic Koala) and my applications

Hello everybody. here you will find all the search , research done by me to get required application on ubuntu on a amd64 bit machine.

System details:

processor : AMD64 Athlon

laptop make : compaq V3425AU


  1. Flash player: I had installed gnash which is prompted when playing youtube but this didnt work on the my machine it kept saying “An error occured, please try again later”.youtube error messgae : “An error occured, please try again later”.
    dailymotion : blank screen 

    Solution : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AMD64/FirefoxAndPlugins


  2. Gstreamer plugins [good, bad , ugly]: Installation using default universe and  multiverse repos may fail.
    So let it fail go you the links from where the packages have been fetched download them manually into a folder.
    rum command :
    :~$ sudo dpkg -i *.debAll of the packages will be installed.


  4. Virtual Box : Its pretty easy. follow the steps in the below links
    to make use of usb2.0 , VRDP and Intel PXE boot ROM with support for the E1000 network card install “Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack”
