Can't find restricted extras

Asked by ROB3RT on 2009-12-05

Hi. I managed to delete my old Ubuntu partition, and then re-install a new partition of Ubuntu. I go to install the restricted extras (sudo apt-get install restricted extras), and when it does, I get:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package restricted

... I don't need to download the restricted extras from somewhere else do I? And, how can I solve this to get the restricted extras?

Thanks to anybody that can help!

Hi,

The package you want is "ubuntu-restricted-extras", so you have to enter "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras" in a terminal to install it.

Sylvain

Hey guys, what a great idea... If only it worked:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package ubuntu

So... Now what?
