My question is the last few times I have installed Vlc and follwed your tutorial, everything works the only thing is that when I insert a DVD the Vlc full screen comes up (that's good) then when I hit play I get this window http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/...screenshot.png then I have to click on the disk tab, check if DVD is picked (which it is always) then hit play. I don't remember having to do all them moves before!. I'm using Lubuntu 12.04. I remember inserting the DVD and Vlc coming on and starting the movie. Am I right with that statement or am I on drugs. What do you think. I'm going to check my 10.04 install and see what it does.
    Thanks in advance for your help

    Yes, the movie should play automatically. Seems like the disc isn't being recognised as a playback DVD. Not sure how I can help you at the moment.

    From the howto:

    "Accept or reject any EULAs using the tab and enter keys."

    Not a problem for me but a complete newbie might get stopped for a while by the unavailability of rr...
    Seems pretty available to me:

    http://www.getdeb.net/updates/Ubuntu.../?q=rubyripper

    Currently available from Getdeb for three versions of Ubuntu.

    I had a simple problem with your guide entitled "Comprehensive Multimedia and Video Howto" that was resolved by simply executing "sudo apt-get update". You might want to add a line that users should run update before executing the massive command that gets everything for their particular flavor of ubuntu. I knew to try updating, but a brand new linux user may not.

    Unfortunately keeping guides updated has recently hit a major obstacle since posts older than 24 hours can not be edited without first gaining the permission of a forum moderator. This is apparently due to spam issues but makes it very inconvenient to keep posts like this one up to date (or at least it was for me).

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Just a quick post to say thanks for (IMHO) the most useful thread on this entire site! I use it every time I re-install Ubuntu and it saves me so much time and grief retweaking things.

    I too had a problem with ruby ripper not installing when I cut and pasted your command, but that's easy enough to sort separately.

    [EDIT: Sorted very easily by running
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    and then retrying
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install rubyripper
    ]

    Thanks again, and keep up the fantastic work!

    I presumed a background apt-get update would execute after the Getdeb and Playdeb packages are installed to add the repos. Anywho, I may abandon this howto as the rules on post editing mean I can't freely edit and update it when necessary. I asked a few weeks ago via PM if I could be given a time slot to edit the howto and never received a reply. I'm not interested in begging the forum gods for permission to edit my 4-year-old howto and it's not as important as it used to be anyway, so perhaps not worth fighting with the gods over.

    Cheers for the support and help with tweaking the howto over the years everyone.

    It would be a great shame if 4 years of work ended in this fashion, is there no other way?

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    First line of this thread, I did this to add the Medibuntu repo-

    sudo -E wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo sed -i "/^# deb .*partner/ s/^# //" /etc/apt/sources.list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get -y --force-yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring app-install-data-medibuntu apport-hooks-medibuntu && sudo apt-get update


    And got this in return-


    --2012-09-03 22:34:48-- http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/maverick.list
