I'm brand new to Ubuntu (and linux all together). I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my Lenovo S10e, and I'm trying to play movies that I loaded from my external HD onto the netbook. I've tried 4 different files, but none are working in either the standard Ubuntu video player or VLC. The only thing that shows up is the VLC cone in the display window.
I have no idea if the graphics driver was installed or not, and if it wasnt I dont know how to do that in Ubuntu.
I have 1.5gb of ram installed, so I doubt thats the issue. Anyways, i'm not very computer saavy, but I'd appreciate any help. Thanks you in advance.
