I would like to install the latest version of Totem. I want to use a PPA or a .deb and I couldn't find anything on the web.


You can download it on the launchpad page of totem

Or alternatively on the launchpad page for totem in Ubuntu

Sorry i thought there where PPA's somewhere on those sites.

There is also a Totem page on gnome.org

Where it is said you should simply use $ sudo apt-get install totem-gstreamer which will install the latest stable(if you didn't change your apt_preferences) release.

If you explicitly want the latest release, no matter if stable or not you could add -t unstable to the apt-get command. Please see the man page for more info.

  • But the links you mention do not have any ppa or .deb files to download. The downloads section has only .tar.gz meaning compiling from source.

  • Is there any particular reason you especially want to use a PPA or a .deb?

    I don't want to compile. I just want to do it with one or two clicks :)

  • I 've just did what you said. After installing totem-gstreamer I still have Totem 2.30.2 and Gstreamer 0.10.28 (and I never changed the apt_preferences).

  • You tagged your question with 10.04 so my guess is that you are using Lucid and you simply won't get a newer version, without implicitly saying which version you want. The command to install the latest version of totem would be apt-get install totem=2.32.0 but as long as you don't add software sources for Maverick i don't think you will be able to download it. Your only hope in that case is a PPA or .deb, but I don't know where to find one. Sorry
