Hmmm. Ubuntu had codec buddy-like application.
Fedora implemented same but which install only Fluendo's codecs and

takes power from OpenSource, so it should not recommend paying and

Livna is not official, bot don't be silly, it provides quality driver
and nonfree packages like codecs. You should support also Livna repo,
but not ship it by default.

Livna is better than ATRPMs - we might be sure :] .

Don't know others...




What about inspiration would you say now?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking inspiration from other distros, as long as you're not just blatantly copying it. Take the idea and add your own things to it, chances are you could come up with something better.
First off, how does this relate to the topic at hand about Ubuntu's theme? Considering the fact that this is the art list and that's what Laith was talking about when he started this mailing list thread. The things I mentioned in regards to inspiration stems from what Ubuntu is doing with their theming.

Second off, from what I remember from screenshots of Codec Buddy, it first gives a message about supporting FOSS codecs like those in the .OGG container. Then it offers a way to legally pay for the codec use, if that's your thing. As a third option that isn't listed officially, but is suggest on the Fedora forum as well as in the official IRC room, is the livna repo which is a quality repo and I use regularly.
