Install Ubuntu Restricted Extras in Ubuntu 8.10 with out internet connection

"Ubuntu Restricted Extras" This must be one of the most wanted packages once you install Ubuntu on your hard disk. As per the package details from synoptic packet manager "Installing this package will pull in support for MP3 playback and decoding, support for various other audio formats (gstreamer plugins), Microsoft fonts, Java runtime environment, Flash plugin, LAME (to create compressed audio files), and DVD playback. Please note that this does not install libdvdcss2, and will not let you play encrypted DVDs." Thats great but when you do not have an internet connection then installing this package is nightmare. Here come the handy package to rescue you "Ubuntu restricted extra offline installer". Thanks to for making this script. This script will install all the restricted packages listed in the synoptic package manager including libdvdcss2. Download the script from here


Once you download the package extract to desktop. Find the script and double click on it. In the new window select Run in Terminal. Thats it. Save the folder for the future use and pass it on to others....
