I am trying to follow the instructions given on the http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-ubuntu.html site.

There it says i have to run the below command to install VLC 1.1 on Ubuntu 10.04:

Command line way

% sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lucid-bleed/ppa
% sudo apt-get update
% sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc

But i am getting the below error for the command % sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc

The following packages have unmet dependencies: mozilla-plugin-vlc: Depends: vlc-nox (= 1.1.5-1ubuntu2~ppa1~lucid1) but it is not going to be installed vlc: Depends: vlc-nox (= 1.1.5-1ubuntu2~ppa1~lucid1) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: vlc-plugin-notify (= 1.1.5-1ubuntu2~ppa1~lucid1) but it is not going to be installed
vlc-plugin-pulse: Depends: vlc-nox (= 1.1.5-1ubuntu2~ppa1~lucid1) but it is not going to be installed

I searched for google on the same..but i was confused with the different approaches mentioned on different sites..

Can any one help me to install VLC on Ubuntu 10.04..

I cannot work with out having VLC ;)

Thanks in Advance

First remove vlc completely and then reinstall it again "sudo apt-get remove vlc --purge" "rm -fr ~/.vlc" "sudo apt-get install vlc" –  karthick87 Nov 29 '10 at 15:05

Installing VLC Player in Ubuntu 10.04
By Using Ubuntu Software Center or Synaptic Package Manager
1. Open SPM(Synaptic Package Manager)(Administration->Synaptic Package Manager) or Ubuntu Software Center(Applications) and Search for vlc player.
2.Check the the box to install and apply(Required in SPM).
3.Downloading and installation will complete within few minutes.
4.That’s All..

By Using Ubuntu Terminal
1.Open Terminal -Hit CTRL+ALT+T or open it from Applications->Accessories->Terminal.
2.Type the command sudo apt-get install vlc
3.It may ask you to enter the user password,if so then enter your password then downloading will begin and installation will also finish within moments.
4.Now,I assume you have successfully installed vlc player on Ubuntu 10.04.

Note: You should add the repository before installing VLC

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome-media-player-development/development

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install vlc

vlc Install vlc

vlc-nox Install vlc-nox

Also see this post if you wanna install vlc offline

If any thing goes wrong during this steps let me know through comments.
