Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Edubuntu teams are proud to present a second Beta release of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Edubuntu 6.06 LTS, codenamed "Dapper Drake". This release corrects some serious flaws in the installer present on the Desktop CD in the first Beta release. Although the text-mode install CD also forms part of this release, it has not been modified since Beta 1. An updated Xubuntu release is also in preparation and will be announced shortly."

Dear Babi Asu,

To install avidemux from a freshly installed run this at the command line:

1. sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list (enable universe and multiverse repositories by uncommenting the approriate line)

2. sudo apt-get update (to get the latest list of apps from the newly enabled repositoies)

3. sudo apt-get install avidemux (it will say something like:-
"The following extra packages will be installed:
Recommended packages:
The following NEW packages will be installed
avidemux libsmjs1
0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 2896kB of archives.
After unpacking 7467kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?"

Enter "Y" and you will have your avidemux installed.

Off the topic

Usually I would run a full update on my system before installing a new application/package. To do that, after running step 2, do this:

a. sudo apt-get upgrade (for typical upgrades) and then

b. sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (for heavy upgrades such as kernel and etc)

If you still experience any problems, do not hesitate to use the mailing-list, IRC or the forum (
