dvd encryption library

Postby heero yuy82 on Thu Jun 16, 2011 6:30 pm

i tried watching the kingdom of heaven dvd on my laptop and it came up with an error message saying the dvd is encrypted and no encryption library is installed (linux mint 11 using the movie player)

could someone direct me to the thing it is looking for?

The regular edition of Mint should have the decryption installed, but if that's not what you installed it's easy to add.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

The US & Japan edition doesn't include stuff like that by default for legal reasons, the regular one does. It is easy enough to install them afterwards, it just gives an install like Ubuntu, no mp3, no DVD playback etc

I've got the same probelm.

DVD is "Blindness", though.

I followed the instructions.

Got a message saying "libdvdcss2 is already the newest version."

Any idea where I go from here ?

In have Mint 11 installed.

using the menu select Preferences->Welcome Screen and click Upgrade to the DVD edition

If you have Mint 12 it may be different. I think it is under Application->Other->Welcome Screen.

you need to this, it's a terminal command:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libdvdread4

And then:
Code: Select all
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
