    Re: ubuntu install

    the easiest way is to login to a terminal session as your username, then type sudo -i, and enter your password - which will make you root.

    then type apt-cache search <filename> you're looking for, omit the <>,

    so it would be apt-cache search xine

    you will need xine-ui, then do an apt-cache search libdvdcss2, which will return only one.

    to install:

    apt-get install xine-ui

    apt-get install libdvdcss2

    or you can opt for kaffeine instead of xine, or gxine, methods are the same for either., but you MUST have libdvdcss2 for any of them to play DVD's.

    Re: ubuntu install

    I mess with it and damage it myself.I just did a reinstall this setup is easy and i'm just not doing thing correct.Anyway i got driver and wine install.Now this apt is setup not to download the files needed for dvd playback.If i can figure it out how to set that part up correctly I might have almost half way i want in linux done.But that apt is confusing me I read in the forum but I keep doing something wrong.I did the kubunto restricted stuff but that not letting me play the dvd.so that lib file that's need I got to find a goodway of installing it jack.

    Any idea how i can do this in a newbie way or even a guide.

    Re: ubuntu install

    I'm not sure what you are doing wrong: here is what you need to do:

    root@ns1:~# apt-cache search libdvdcss2
    libdvdcss2 - a portable abstraction library for DVD decryption
    root@ns1:~# apt-cache search libdvdread
    libdvdread-dev - library for reading DVDs (development)
    libdvdread3 - library for reading DVDs

    then type apt-get install libdvdcss2 <enter>
    then type apt-get install libdvdread3 <enter>

    Re: ubuntu install

    A couple of questions- If 7.10 installed the ati drivers automatically, is there any reason to use envy? Also, when I try to change the visual effects in the appearance preferences it always tells me "composite extension is not available" so it won't let me turn on the eye candy. Any idea what I need to do to fix this?

    Re: ubuntu install

    holy cow i'm getting closer what i think that was blocking me is you have to go in sourcelist and take out the pound so that you can install what you want.I got vlc to play the movie after i was able to download it which i couldn't until i read on it and search for that file.now i need to think on my lag i get with restricted driver for ati.Hope i can figure that out.

    Re: ubuntu install

    did you type sudu -i then enter your password 1st? Also I had great success with Envy and getting my frame rates and correct video driver, but again I'm using an NVidia card, according to the documentation it should work for ATI cards as well.

    Re: ubuntu install

    I believe you'll have to add the multiverse repository to your list, then recheck them for updates and try install.
