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 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…
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:
VLC media player 0.8.6h Janus

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.
