    [SOLVED] mint universal edition ?

    I had mint already installed on my notebook, and decided to put it on my desktop over the weekend, the install on the notebook, is from a disk I burned myself, but I bought linux format at the bookstore saturday, and installed the mint disk from that. I did all the updates, adn realized that, some of the things that work on the notebook arn't working, I went back and read the warining on the sleeve " universal edition may be missing some codecs that cannot be distrubted in every country...doh! is there a different repository I can go to, or do I have to re-install mint from the cd I burned ? thanks

    You don't have to reinstall mint. You can simply install the ubuntu-restricted extras metapackage and you should get the missing codecs. Try the instructions here. They are for Ubuntu, but should work on Mint.

    thanks, that worked and answered another question at the same time, I had been wondering for a while whether to update for "ubuntu" or "debian" now I know.
