As Dominik says, you already have got the  /usr/lib/codecs directory.

Ok, you are confused so much.

Delete essential-20061022 and all-20061022 directories, like this.

# sudo rm -rf essential-20061022
# sudo rm -rf all-20061022

Then, do as follows;


1. SOMEWHERE> tar xjvf all-20061022.tar.bz2

2. SOMEWHERE> cd all-20061022

3. SOMEWHERE/all-20061022> sudo cp * /usr/lib/codecs

You didn't use ln command correctly.

Hum. why don't you ask on the Ubuntu ML?

I don't know Ubuntu at all.
