Just wanted to thank you for the positive feedback and thank those who helped with the latest revision.
there is an Open Folder option. How would I select kaffeine?
So there are still just the default options, such as Totem, Open Folder, Do Nothing? Could be due to the fact that Kaffiene is a KDE app. There is no option to launch by command string in Hardy just yet, so not much you can do for now. I guess if you're desperate, you could change the Totem launch command to Kaffiene's, using the VLC instructions as a guide, then select Totem in the DVD Video list.

Thank you for this amazing guide....it has allowed me to switch back to Ubuntu from a clunky, ugly and unwieldy version of Freespire.
I can now play encrypted DVD's, as well as watch more than one YouTube video without Firefox crashing.
Initially, I did have problems with Flash. Every time I started a second consecutive YouTube video, Firefox would crash and close immediately. (The first video would play with no problems!) This was fixed by completely deleting Flash and the plugin file, as per your instructions, then installing the most recent Flash package downloaded directly from the Flash website.
Ubuntu's appeal over other Linux dists I've tried is the clean gnome desktop and the very high quality fonts and font rendering.
I was doing a clean install with Hardy Heron, stumbled upon with this marvelous how-to guide. But...
There is always a but...
When I have finished installing all the sound codecs and restarted (install one part - restart & test - install next part - restart & test), my sound card stopped working, it seems to be some issue related to PulseAudio/ALSA (concrete: alsa-utils), do you know if you need to install alsa software in order to make all the codecs work
Thanks in advance
