    If you still have it installed cuz, open a terminal and type vlc (and press enter to run it) and then paste the output in to a new thread in the Ubuntu forum. That should give us any errors.

    Those that like good country fiddling should give Thirty-Year Retrospective (Live) by Mark O'Conner a try. You can hear some short clips from it at Amazon, or iTunes:

    Amazon.com: Thirty-Year Retrospective: Live: Mark O'Connor

    iTunes: Thirty-Year Retrospective (Live) by Mark O'Connor


    edit: I should add that some of the songs on this album are not your classic country sound, but more in line with progressive country, and maybe even a jazzy sound on some of them. O'Conner was a state and national fiddling champion many times during teenage years, hence his country roots. Note that he also won national championships on the guitar and mandolin.

    I went to see them in concert when they were at the peak of their fame and they certainly do put on quite a show.

    I love ZZ Top as well and have been an avid listener of their music since 1973. My favourite by them is "My Head's In Mississippi."

    Probably because you are running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. You can click on my provided link and download the .deb package. You can install it using Gdebi if you wish or from terminal with the dpkg -i command. Gdebi would be easier for you though I guess. Gdebi should resolve any dependencies (if any are needed, maybe not). It is a very lightweight application Cuz. It is a terminal only application. No launcher. You launch it by typing cclive in terminal. No gui either.
    Roky, the Gdebi install overheated and froze my computer, even force quit would not work, I had to unplug my computer.

    Sheesh. I can't win for losing bro. I'm sorry you are having so much trouble.

    I thought a all deb would see you through. My bad. Open Synaptic and see on bottom taskbar if it lists any broken packages. If you see a broken package listed.
    Try picking Edit>Fix Broken Packages. Crosses Fingers.

    If no broken package is shown in bottom taskbar of synaptic. Type cclive in search box. If it shows up. Click on box and use reinstall option to be sure it installed ok. If it does not show up after search. Forget installing cclive. NYC Stanton Island just must be a bad spot in the universe. My best guess any hows.

    Gdebi should not have froze. It either would have said it can't install package. Or. It would have installed it. It's a wonderment.

    Edit: Is Ubuntu 8.04 LTS at end of support life yet? Maybe that is why is all I can guess.

    2nd Edit: When was the last time you hit reload in synaptic or did a
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    ?
