mythfrontend.real: error while loading shared libraries: libvdpau.so.1

UPDATE Dec 2010: I ran into this same problem when updating from 10.4 Lucid to 10.10 Maverick.
The trick is just to reinstall libvdpau1 using synaptic. End update.

There are many users posting reports about this problem and I could not find any real resolutions… Here is a good example:

I think this is what fixed it on my system (I did not take real notes about this):

Uninstall libvdpau

Uninstall nvidia drivers (if any)

Reinstall nvidia drivers

Reinstall libvdpau.

My working pkgs (Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid mythtv 0.23):
