Hmmmm, I'll have to try again (last time I tried was yesterday) but when
I tried to use the command line given in Medibuntu it comes up with the
error that it cannot find the Maverick repository.....
But I did find that Maverick seems to have overcome some of the earlier
Ubuntu maiden shyness and actually installs some apps which will allow
you to handle some multimedia, but not all (eg k9copy).
