How to install VLC 1.0 player on Ubuntu (Hardy, Interpid, Jaunty)

January 31, 2010

VLC is the best player for me. It’s very popular in Linux community. This is short guide how to get the newest version of the VLC player.

Before installation, Yo have to add GPG key. Run this command inside terminal.

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 7613768D

Now, add repository address according the version of Ubuntu you use. Fire up this command inside terminal:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the address of repository in the end of file.

For Ubuntu Jaunty

deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main

For Ubuntu Intrepid

deb intrepid main
deb-src intrepid main

For Ubuntu Hardy

deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main

It is highly recommended to remove already installed version of VLC, if any.

sudo apt-get remove vlc  vlc-nox vlc-data

Finnaly, install the newest version of VLC player.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc  vlc-nox vlc-data
