[Bug 1613519] Re: Incorrect description of installation via terminal


I would also go for the command line option. I've tried to look those packages in the Software Center and they don't appear. Synaptic package manager could be used instead (I found them there), but it is not explained in the manual, though it is mentioned at #1317 and appears in the glossary.
Anyway we could also go for the third option with just some rewording: 

"To install these additional codecs, open the \application{Terminal}
either through the \application{Dash} or the \application{Launcher}.
When the \window{Terminal} window opens, use apt to install the
following packages via \userinput{sudo apt install} (sudo apt install
ubuntu-restricted-extras libdvdread4 libdvdnav4) or using the Synaptic
package manager and looking for:"

I will watch this bug to follow the final decision in the Spanish translation.

  Incorrect description of installation via terminal

Status in Ubuntu Manual:

Bug description:

  "Double-click each item above and then click the \button{Install} button. This may open an \window{Authenticate} window. If so, enter your administrative password, then click \button{Authenticate} to start the installation process. "

  This cannot describe how to install in a terminal the following packages
  ‣ ubuntu-restricted-extras
  ‣ libdvdread4
  ‣ libdvdnav4
  like it is said in #1021 to 1024.
