View Full Version : [ubuntu] DVD playback error

July 8th, 2008, 05:17 AM
I'm trying to instal libdvdcss2 because currently I can't play dvds but when I try installing it via the terminal I get this error

Reading package lists... Done

Package libdvdcss2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package libdvdcss2 has no installation candidate

What does this mean?

You need to add the medibuntu repository to install libdvdcss2.

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update

Then try installing the package again.
