Ubuntu – How to update to VLC 2.0 in 10.04


Is there any PPA for to update VLC to 2.0 version in Ubuntu 10.04? If not how can I update it. I have already tried this ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc2
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install vlc

and it never works. It just gives the 1.1.13 version.

Best Answer

From the VLC pages

Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS

VLC version 1.0.6 in Ubuntu 10.04 is out-of-date. We recommend you install VLC 1.1.x manually.

If you wish to install VLC 1.0.6 anyway, please refer to the instructions above for Ubuntu 10.10. Note that there will be some bugs; you are on your own.

At your OWN risks, install VLC from PPA:

Command line way

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