Thank you, I think I got that fixed now, at least the terminal seems to 
be working, and I updated the files and things that came up.

What it is, I bought an Acer DVD player, and I have been trying to play 
films using it. It keeps telling me that I am missing some codecs. I 
followed the instructions, but it doesnt get you anywhere. Would anybody 
know the codecs that are needed to use with Totem Movie PLayer, as that 
seems to be my player. Or is there another player that I can use that 
would play the DVD's?

Thank you again for your help. :)
