Make sure you are absolutely up-to-date on system updates. For several
weeks, one or more of the archives for 7.10 had munged dependencies,
such that I couldn't install the necessary prereqs for Totem.
When the dependency thing was finally fixed, I did a "apt-get install
w32codecs" and then, when the system installed these and their prereqs,
Totem started "working". That is, it would at least play a .wmv file.
However, I wouldn't rely on Totem if playing .wmv files is part of what
you need to do. The .wmv file I used, which works fine under mplayer,
has horrible distortion/pixillation that makes Totem unusable.
