Feisty Fawn Autosuggest Codec Update!

Thursday, February 01, 2007

Now, when you open a multimedia file in Feisty Fawn, it will automatically suggest the proper codec package to handle the file! Just another way Ubuntu is making Linux available for the masses! Check out the picks @ diggapleaze's flickr photostream! Here's the process:
  1. Double click mp3 file.
  2. Totem loads, fails to play, calls gnome-app-install, and I click checkbox for "Gstreamer extra plugins"
  3. I click "yes" when I am asked to enable universe repo.
  4. I click "close" when changes are applied.
  5. I click "apply" to gnome-app-install
  6. Finally the mp3 plays!
A total of 6 clicks, yes, but its a step in the right direction!
