    Can't Get xlibs?


    Trying to install realplay, but needed dependences "xlibs" which i can't seem to install with apt-get?

    root@sorannos:~# sudo apt-get install libstdc++
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    E: Couldn't find package libstdc
    root@sorannos:~# apt-get install xlibs
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Package xlibs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    libxft1 xkeyboard-config
    E: Package xlibs has no installation candidate
    root@sorannos:~#

    How do I go about and install them, so I can install realplayer.
    Thanks

    First of all, did you try to install those two packages with sudo apt-get install ? That would probably get you headed in the right direction. However, here is more information for you:

    apt-cache search libstdc provides the following output:

    Might be some of those files you need to install. Also, have you modified your sources.list at all ? I have a thread on my forum with a highly modified sources.list that you might want to use. It'll get you a ton of sources with many more apps. Below is the link:
