    Default Ubuntu 10.04 codenamed Lucid Lynx is released!

    Ubuntu 10.04 codenamed Lucid Lynx is released! Once again Canonical and Ubuntu developers have done their best to improved Ubuntu. Just for the record Ubuntu is a Linux Operating System. The new version loads faster than Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, is more social, allows you to easily manage and edit your photos, videos and documents and of course has a lot of bug fixes and software updates. If you haven't done it already download Ubuntu 10.04 and install it or upgrade from the previous Ubuntu 9.10 and let's get started.

    Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Features : Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Features | Ubuntu

    1. Restricted Extras

    The Ubuntu Restricted Extras will install Adobe Flash Player, Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (sun-java-jre) with Firefox plug-ins (icedtea), a set of Microsoft Fonts (msttcorefonts), multimedia codecs (w32codecs or w64codecs), mp3-compatible encoding (lame), FFMpeg, extra Gstreamer codecs, the package for DVD decoding (libdvdread4, but see below for info on libdvdcss2), the unrar archiver, odbc, and cabextract. It also installs multiple "stripped" codecs and avutils (libavcodec-unstripped-52 and libavutil-unstripped-49). This is a single command approach.

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    2. Multimedia

    Audio and Video Playback

    Playing a Video (XVid, DivX etc.) or Audio (MP3) file has become pretty easy. Just double click the file you want and allow Totem to automatically download the needed codecs. But you could also do this by yourself very easily by installing a package which contains all the needed codecs and more. Just look above at Ubuntu Restricted Extras.

    DVD Playback

    To play encrypted DVDs you must install libdvdcss2. In Ubuntu 10.04 there is no need to manually configure the Medibuntu repository. If you have previously installed Ubuntu Restricted Extras skip the following command. If you haven't open a terminal and type:

    sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
    Next type:

    sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

    Default

    MPlayer/SMPlayer

    Personally I prefer mplayer and smplayer (mplayer's GUI) for video playback. It supports almost any video type, external subtitles as well as DVD playback as long as you have the needed codecs installed as shown previously. To install it type:

    sudo apt-get install mplayer smplayer
    You will find it under Applications -> Video & Sound -> SMPlayer

    VLC Player

    Many users prefer the Video Lan Client (VLC) as their multimedia player. VLC supports many formats without need for additional codecs. Simply install it by typing:

    sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse
    K9Copy

    K9copy is a free open source DVD backup, copying, compression, and authoring utility that requires libdvdcss. For other info, see this or this guide. You can easily create MPEG-2. MPEG-4, or DVD videos with this utility. To install it type:

    sudo apt-get install k9copy
    DVD::Rip

    DVD::Rip is a DVD backup/copy program, written in GTK-based perl, that uses the transcode video/audio processing and conversion tools. To install it type:

    sudo apt-get install dvdrip

    Default 3. Java

    Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and Firefox Java Plugin

    Close Firefox if it's running, open a terminal and type:

    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
    Sun Java Development Kit (JDK)

    If you want to build applications, applets, and components using the Java programming language you need to install JDK.

    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

    Default 5. Google Chromium

    5. Google Chromium

    Chromium is Google's open source web browser and it's fast. You should give it a try. To install first you must add the gpg key:

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 4E5E17B5
    Next You will have to add the following chromium-daily repo to your 3rd party repository list. Go to System - Administration - Software Sources, select the Other Software tab and Click ADD.

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
    Now you will find it under Applications > Internet > Chromium Web Browser.

    Default 6. NTFS Read/Write Support

    6. NTFS Read/Write Support

    Ubuntu has a graphical configuration tool for enabling read/write on NTFS partitions, either from a Windows/Linux dual boot system or from external hard disks. To install it type:

    sudo apt-get install ntfs-config
    Run it through System -> Administration -> NTFS Configuration Tool.

    NTFS-Config will auto detect your NTFS partitions and afterwards you can enable write support for them.
