I used to have Ubuntu 13.04, and also I had installed VLC 2.1.0 with a .tar.xz archive on that, but after the release of 13.10, I removed 13.04 and installed 13.10, so I tried to install VLC 2.1.0 from the normal PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install vlc browser-plugin-vlc
...but it installed VLC 2.0.9 for me, so I removed that and tried to install VLC the way I had installed it before on Ubuntu 13.04:
wget -c download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/2.1.0/vlc-2.1.0.tar.xz tar -xJvf download.videolan.org/pub/videolan/vlc/2.1.0/vlc-2.1.0.tar.xz cd vlc-2.1.0 sudo apt-get build-dep vlc ./configure make sudo make install
...but suddenly an error occurred while extracting the .tar.xz file :
Error setting owner : Operation not permitted, but the owner of file is me and I changed the all the file's permissions in file properties to read and write, but it doesn't work, so what can I do?
And also if it doesn't work, suggest a good way to install VLC 2.1.0!
