    sorry, but these instructions don’t make much sense.

    firstly, why have you specified the download link again in the tar command? surely just the file name here..?

    secondly, i get the following message with your build line:

    “E: Unable to find a source package for vlc”

    i’m not really very good at command lines but i’m not sure these instructions make sense. thanks..

      You need to enable the software sources repo in order to make this work. Look in your software sources and check the extra repo’s or software sources. I had to do this and now it works perfectly.
