After using both Ubuntu 11.04 (for Unity) and Fedora 15 (for GNOME 3), I've reverted back to Ubuntu 10.10 for its better classic gnome experience, and have no plans to upgrade until Oneiric releases (for its Unity and GNOME 3 compatibility altogether), and since 10.10 is older now, the VLC media player in its official repository is way to old, and I'm looking for PPA that provides latest stable VLC in Maverick.
So far, I've tried
ppa:n-muench/vlc PPAs, and both say that they have VLC 1.1.10 in the repositories, but after adding the PPA and updating the package information, I do not see updated version of VLC in synaptic, also, running
sudo apt-get install vlc mozilla-plugin-vlc shows dependency issues and prevents installing anything. So, what's going wrong? other working PPA suggestions are welcome. Compiling the latest version of VLC manually, or using Lucid-Bleed PPA (which is available for 10.04 only but is known to work in 10.10 as well) would be my last option.
