I am lost it appears. On my cheap lap-top I got Hardy loaded using
the Alternate CD and it looked perfect and was so I think. I got 170
updates and it was really what I wanted.
Then I did a really stupid thing. I tried to look at a file with
totem. Of course it could not play the file and it said you need some
more special files, 2 in fact. I installed both and they ruined ALL my
Sound and Video things.
These 2 files were from a computer outside the USA and they are
faulty in some way. I did not write down the name of the files. If you
know the file names I can remove them and get my Sound and Video systems
I did look at Google and put in ubuntu,totem,freeze and got several
thousand web things to read. I find this is a very common PROBLEM. But
after reading 15 of them there was no solution offered except to re-load
your ubuntu and the next step is to with great haste delete all of totem.
