I've been trying to download the latest version of VLC which is 3.something (my elementary OS has vlc 2.1.6 rincewind).
If I go to the Videolan download page or if I use Software Center they both revert to the old version of VLC which is no longer supported.
Do I have to use Terminal?
In which case is anybody able to tell me the exact commands to use as I have no idea whatsoever how to use the command line.
Any help gratefully appreciated. When adding tags, the information said that Freya has been superseded by Loki.
- Should I simply upgrade to Loki?
- Is Loki a better OS and does it update VLC, which Freya doesn't?
- Also, as a supplementary, does anyone know of a good idiot's guide to using the command line?
