Like the title says! i just want to know how to install Ubuntu Restricted Extras without the flash packages.
Restricted extras is a metapackage
A metapackage is not a single package, but rather a list of packages.
The idea is to make it easier for you, rather then installing each individual package, you install the metapackage.
To see the list of packages in restricted extras see
which points to
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer0.10-pitfdll gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse libavcodec-extra-53 ttf-mscorefonts-installer unrar
