That's what I've been trying to do. According to ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/precise/multiverse/base/libfaac0 the package I want is in multiverse and I have multiverse in my sources.list: deb us-east-1.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise multiverse deb-src us-east-1.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise multiverse deb us-east-1.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-updates multiverse deb-src us-east-1.ec2.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-updates multiverse But I get Package 'libfaac0' has no installation candidate –  user1891909 Dec 30 '12 at 13:04
OK, downloaded the .deb package by hand and installed with dpkg. I still don't understand why apt-get couldn't find it though. Thanks for the help. –  user1891909 Dec 30 '12 at 13:16
