Independent of your distribution, first log in as root:


On Linux Mint 12 and Ubuntu 11.10, add following repository:

add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/vlc

Afterwards, update your sources list:

apt-get update

Finally, install VLC 2.0:

apt-get install vlc

On openSuSE 12.1, add following repository:

Then refresh your sources:

And finally install VLC:
