installing gstreamer-1.0 on Olimex A10 Lime

The standard OS of A10-Lime is Debian Wheezy, which doesn’t provide gstreamer-1.0 in its default repositories.

But fortunatly gstreamer-1.0 is part of the Wheezy-Backports.

so you have to add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.lists

deb wheezy-backports main


and run

$ sudo apt-get update


unfortunatly though – there seem to be some issue with the liborc libraries – so I cam up with this workaround – i downloaded the files manually and installed them with dpkg.

$ wget
$ wget
$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all liborc-0.4-0_0.4.19-1~bpo70+1_armhf.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all liborc-0.4-dev_0.4.19-1~bpo70+1_armhf.deb

after that i just installed gstreamer1.0-tools and the plugins

$ sudo apt-get install gstreamer1.0-tools gstreamer1.0-plugins-base gstreamer1.0-plugins-good
