    Does it contain any SW data on it? or is it corrupted?

    Re: New to VLC and still learning Ubuntu

    Hello, Harfin!

    Regarding your post #10, the three code-blocks in my post (#9) all contain terminal commands you were supposed to enter as is. The text before each block explains what they do. The first block adds a new repository to apt, the second block downloads the key for that repository and gives it to apt so apt can verify the signatures of the package and the last block updates the package lists and installs the needed library.

    Regarding your post #12, no, this is not at all what I expected. I didn't even know libdvd-pkg exists. It should work, but it takes the long way around to achieve the same thing - it installs a complete set of development tools, downloads the source code for libdvdcss2 and compiles and installs that. As you can tell from the output, it installs about 126 MB of tools to get a library that's less then 200 kb. If one has all these tools installed anyway, than its a nice idea. If one just wants to watch a movie it's overkill. 'libdvd-pkg' has an entry in the field 'Provides:' set to 'libdvdcss2'; so if 'libdvdcss2' can't be found as a package in the repositories, apt will offer this package. If you follow the instructions, there will be a package 'libdvdcss2' in the repositories known to apt and apt will install that and not offer to install 'libdvd-pkg'

    Hi Holger

    Well, the new package has fixed the problem! DVD videos now up and running! Thankyou so much for your advice and input!

    Re: New to VLC and still learning Ubuntu

    It was all made very clear in the link that I gave in post #8
    Installing libdvdcss

    Legal warning: Check with your local laws to make sure usage of libdvdcss2 would be legal in your area.

    Ubuntu 15.10 and newer

    From Ubuntu 15.10 onwards, libdvd-pkg is available to ease the installation of libdvdcss.

    Install the libdvd-pkg package (no need to add third party repositories) via Synaptic or command line:

    sudo apt install libdvd-pkg && sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

    Follow libdvd-pkg's instructions to let it download, compile, and install libdvdcss.
    so I am surprised you did not just follow that info.

    Re: New to VLC and still learning Ubuntu

    Further to the resolution of being able to play DVD video discs, this morning I attempted to see if there were any updates for the laptop (running "sudo apt update in the terminal) and the following details were shown after it started to compile the update list:
    W: GPG error: https://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 6BCA5E4DB84288D9
    E: The repository 'https://download.videolan.org/pub/debian/stable Release' is not signed.
    N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
    I knew that there are updates from the software updater tool, so I used that to the ensure that updates were installed.

    Seems that the issue revolves around videolan

    Any advice / suggestions / recommendations ?

    Thanks. Just entered "sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 6BCA5E4DB84288D9".
    Now rebooting, as when I rebooted 30 mins ago, I could only get back on in safe mode.
    Thanks
    Alan
