k9copy problem

i had k9copy working fine on 10.3, then had to reinstall the OS and never got it right, but fresh installed suse 11 and kde 4, and installed from the packman repo kde4 k9copy v2. yet i go to rip dvds and no success, it just closes :frowning: i have yet to install libdvdcss2 yet, maybe this is the problem? but i can’t get internet for my laptop just yet so can’t try it out, but when i can are there any other packages i should check for?



I recommend you focus on getting internet working on your laptop. Any other approach is very painful right now, … at least until user nucleuskore creates a package of multimedia rpm’s for users who do not have internet access…

Alternatively, you could do this your self. Simply take apart nucleuskore’s package for 10.3, and recreate a similar package for 11.0.
Opensuse 10.3 (32-bit) Kde & Gnome - multimedia for users with limited internet access

sorry for the misunderstanding oldcpu, i meant at that specific moment in time i could not get access to internet on laptop (the laptop was not with me), the internet is working fine on the laptop :smiley:

sorry for misunderstanding. have you any tips? im going to check if i have libdvd-read installed, but i can’t find libdvdcss for suse 11…

any thoughts, o wise one :slight_smile:


my problem may not lie with k9copy…i can’t even play dvds. i opened vlc by a console to see errors and found this:

ross@linux-32e6:~> vlc

what next oldcpu? thanks very much in advance.

ps libdvdnav and libdvdread3 are installed and up to date according to software search in yast.


any body :frowning:


did you try and install libdvdcss?


i couldn’t find libdvdcss for suse 11…


any ideas how to get it? i searched in yast still to no avail.


Go to this URL (yes, I know it says for 10.2, but go anyway):
Restricted Formats/10.2 - openSUSE-Community
… the rpm command in black will work with 11.0.

… if anyone asks, you didn’t hear it from me. :smiley:

thanks oldcpu, i will try that tomorrow when i get my laptop…i left it at work :mad:



sorry about the delay in replying. installing libdvdcss2 has worked, though strange it’s not out for suse 11 yet…

thanks a lot.


Hmmm … not too strange …

Read this on libdvdcss
Restricted Formats - openSUSE

… who wants to take the risk of packaging?

true. it’s a shame that means under ‘normal’ circumstances, a dvd i have paid for, i can’t watch on my laptop, which i paid for.


thanks very much oldcpu, your help has been very much appreciated. it means i don’t have to go down the ‘wine’ route, which i want to stay away from, as i want to use linux alternatives to programs for windows. not switch to linux and use windows progs.
