Post Help Me!! DVD Playback

I would like to get DVD playback going with Freespire. I am new to Linux. I followed the directions below but I can't get the libdvdcss2 package to install. However, I keep getting the message dependency is not satisfiable. What do I do? :

You need four libraries Three of them can be found in the Freespire repositories so the only thing you have to do is to paste in a console:
sudo apt-get install libdvdnav4 libdvdplay0 libdvdread3
go to
type in kaffeine player in search
hit install button
type gdebi in search
hit install button
google libdvdcss2-dev_1.2.8-1_i386.deb
double click libdvdssd deb package
install it then restart system
NOW kaffeine player will play any DVD movie
