Ubuntu – Not able to install VLC 1.1

10.04software installationvlc

I am trying to follow these instructions

They give these commands to install VLC 1.1 on Ubuntu 10.04:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lucid-bleed/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc

But the last command returns:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:   
mozilla-plugin-vlc: 
Depends: vlc-nox (= 1.1.5-1ubuntu2~ppa1~lucid1) but it is not going to be installed 
vlc:
Depends: vlc-nox (= 1.1.5-1ubuntu2~ppa1~lucid1) but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: vlc-plugin-notify (= 1.1.5-1ubuntu2~ppa1~lucid1) but it is not going to be installed  
vlc-plugin-pulse: 
Depends: vlc-nox (= 1.1.5-1ubuntu2~ppa1~lucid1) but it is not going to be installed

Can any one help me to install VLC on Ubuntu 10.04.

  • Installing VLC Player in Ubuntu 10.04
    By Using Ubuntu Software Center or Synaptic Package Manager:

    1. Open SPM (Synaptic Package Manager) (Administration → Synaptic Package Manager) or Ubuntu Software Center (Applications) and Search for vlc player.
    2. Check the the box to install and apply (Required in SPM).
    3. Downloading and installation will complete within few minutes.
    4. That’s all.

    By Using Ubuntu Terminal

    1. Open Terminal - Hit Ctrl+Alt+T or open it from Applications → Accessories → Terminal.
    2. Type the command

      sudo apt-get install vlc           
      
    3. It may ask you to enter the user password. if so, then enter your password. Then downloading will begin and installation will also finish within moments.
    4. Now, I assume you have successfully installed vlc player on Ubuntu 10.04.

    Note: You should add the repository before installing VLC

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome-media-player-development/development
    sudo apt-get update 
    sudo apt-get install vlc
    

    Alternatively, you can click on the links below to install:
