    VLC can play almost anything.

    videolan.org

    It can be installed using Synaptic Package Manager.

    You will still need to install libdvdcss2. See medibuntu

    libdvdcss2:

    Package libdvdcss2 has no available version, but exists in the database.
    This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency
    and never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the
    contents of sources.list


    Guess there is no way to run a dvd ?

    You need the medibuntu repos to install libdvdcss2. Do:
    Code:
    sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update
    Then install libdvdcss2.

    Install libdvdcss2 and then use smplayer which uses mplayer, in case you have a nvidia card, you can do full screen DVD without taxing your system as the GPU rather than CPU handles the load for rendering via vdpau.
