Ubuntu Fresh Install: RestrictedFormats?

Have you installed a fresh Ubuntu? If YES! then you might be experiencing a few problems in listening to the music, watching videos and surfing the web as in problems with Flash, Java and so on. Don’t worry just feed your terminal with the following commands and all will be well. 😀 This is just because the patent and copyright restrictions (see Ubuntu License Policy) complicate distribution of software to support non-free formats.

For Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

For Kubuntu:

sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras

For Lubuntu:

sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras

For Xubuntu:

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-restricted-extras

To play DVDs, you need to install libdvdcss by entering the following in a terminal:

 sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
