The end of Medibuntu

Medibuntu is going down.

The project is not really needed nowadays, except for one package: libdvdcss. This package is now maintained by Jonathan Riddell at Blue Systems. It is available in a repository hosted by VideoLAN.

To disable the Medibuntu repository and enable the libdvdcss one, use these commands:

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
curl ftp://ftp.videolan.org/pub/debian/videolan-apt.asc | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb ftp://ftp.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable ./" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/libdvdcss.list
sudo apt-get update
If you are using Ubuntu saucy, you can also install libdvdcss using an alternative method (make sure to install/upgrade the libdvdread4 package first).

I'll keep the repository online for now, at least until the Ubuntu 13.10 release. Expect the repository to be down after that. An iso image of the current state of the repository is available.

I recommend to disable the repository if you are currently using it.
