I have recently installed Ubuntu 9.04 and decided to follow the detailed
instructions which you so kindly supplied. As far as I can tell I did
exactly what was described. 

> Applications>Add/Remove
> Ensure that 'All' is selected, and Click the choices to select 'All
> Available Applications' from the list.
> Then into the 'Search' space type
> gstreamer
> After a short time, the search results will display a number of

No entry appeared for Ubuntu restricted extras and the odd thing was
there were two entries for OpenOffice.

Ignoring this set back I pressed on to the Medibuntu bit.

I verified that the entry was there under Third Party Software but I
could not find either libdvdcss2 or w32codecs.

Please, could you tell me the reason for these anomalies.
