Post by heero yuy82 »

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
