The install.sh file was in the same directory where the "deb" directory was.

Yes I have. The full path of install.sh  is  F:\Ubuntu\VLC Player
And the full path to the "deb" directory is F:\Ubuntu\VLC Player 0.9.9a\deb
The path is in windows as you can see.

On my Kubuntu, it just says that an error encountered. No specific details
in the GUI. Should I try any other command from shell to install
individually ?
