    Robbob you're right sorry about that, our bad. Glad to know that you managed to install it by yourself :)

    Hey, no problem, when you do add it can you review the various repositories and ensure the right ones are added in synaptic and/or the /etc/apt/sources.list file so new users dont have this issue at all in the future?

    The problem is MOST packages are armhf, which actually run fine, but good luck trying to get the multi-arch armhf command to work in dpkg.

    Instead I just went for a fresh install of ubuntu but armhf instead. Unity3d won't work right until you get open working though, and I still haven't. I have no idea what I'm doing

    Im trying to enable the other repos from synaptic like in the tutorial but the options aren't the same.

    In synaptic when i go 'Settings/Repositories', it shows a completely different window with just a table but do tick box options. I have no idea how to populate the table with a ppa?

    @ pjc123 : I think you're right. Moreover the UDOO board will never reach the potential of the community around the Raspberry Pi. If I had to do it an other time, I will choose an other card than this UDOO board with 3 dudes working to build gadgets as tutorials. Is there not an other way for the company Seco or Aidilab to make their own publicity than this UDOO board ?

    Why not post a tutorial how to build from source the applications? Then have a website where they can be uploaded and shared?

    i'm finding that i'm not able to install some basic things (like openssl or gstreamer) with apt-get
    it reports that packages aren't found.

    i've tried "sudo apt-get update" and "upgrade" but still my apt-get constantly reports "unable to locate package"

    i added the other repos that Patola has listed but that didn't help.

    anyone else having this issue?

    I've been struggling with the same missing elements as well.
    Besides issues with available libraries/package managers:
    I'm also finding the need for something like WiringPi (http://wiringpi.com/) to be absolutely critical. Is anyone working on something along those lines, i.e. "C" and command line control of GPIO functionality?
