Because you didn't Applications -> Media -> xine ?

The steps are:

1] Open SPM (Computer -> System Configuration -> Synaptic Package Manager)
2] Install xine-ui
3] exit SPM
4] Open a Root Terminal
5] get the codecs (copy/paste "wget" line into root terminal, hit return key)
6] install the codecs (copy past "dpkg" line into the root terminal, hit the return key)
7] exit the Root Terminal
8] Applications -> Media -> xine
9] If Totem starts up, just close it.
10] Push the "DVD" button on the xine player.

xine-ui is part of "Universe". You will have to enable the "Universe" Repositories.

07/05/2006 :
Why Marillat's repository doesn't work ? Because now the repository is here debian-multimedia.org
See at the bottom for news sources.list entries.
Now you can use the distro name or the alias name (stable --> sarge or etch --> testing).
looks like the link isn't valid anymore. i'm still working on tracking it down ...
here's a mirror with a more current version too: http://mirrors.optralan.com/videolan/debian/i386/
or here: http://ftp2.via.ecp.fr/pub/videolan/debian/i386/

EDIT: sorry folks, i'm an idiot, not sure what kind of search landed me here, but i was definately not paying attention to the date on these posts. terribly sorry. :-\"

Hello there. I'm really trying hard to get DVD playback in Ubuntu. I followed the aforementioned instructions (xine-ui and libdvd2css), and Xine just says:

"The source can't be read. Maybe you don't have enough rights for this or source doesn't contain data (e.g.: not disk in drive). (Encrypted or faulty DVD)"

I tried playing DVDs in VLC, and VLC just closes. I believe it is afraid of me.

Perhaps I should break down and cry. CRY LIKE THE BABY I AM.

What is your hardware, Intel or AMD, 32 bit or 64?

Have you tried Automatix?

If anyone is interested, the file structure has been modified at the site given in the origional instructions.

As of today 08/11/07 use the following in the root terminal instead:

"wget http://www.las.ic.unicamp.br/pub/debian-marillat/pool/main/libd/libdvdcss/libdvdcss2_1.2.9-0.0_i386.deb"

without the quotes of coarse.

The second command remains the same except the version number should be 1.2.9-0.0; just change the 8 to a 9.

Cheers!
