At least I hope so.
If you're one of the few who's distro runs RipIt4Me under Wine with no issues then count yourself lucky. There have been quite a few who have received the "Failed to Copy" and "No DVD" message when clicking either Wizard Mode or 1-Click Mode. Hopefully, that's a thing of the past.
I've tried this info on three different distros (Ubuntu Edgy...a debian based distro, Blag 59999.22224...a Fedora based distro, and VectorLinux 5.8 Standard Gold...a Slackware based distro) with the latest Wine version available and it worked every time.
First of all, follow this guide on how to set up Wine and install DVD Shrink, DVD Decrypter, RipIt4Me Installer, and mfc42.dll... found here:
Ok, after all that is done...open up Text Editor (or what ever you call it in your distro) and type "Welcome to RipIt4Me". Now click save and title it as "RipIt4Me". Now right click in an open space (either in Desktop or /home/user) and select Create Folder and name that folder "TempIFOs" (it has to be named exactly that or it will not work!). Now move your RipIt4Me text file into the TempIFOs folder you just created. The last thing I want you to do is copy and paste this TempIFOs folder into /home/your-user-name/.wine/drive_c/windows/temp folder. And you're done.
No this is not a joke. It actually works...at least for me...and hopefully for you. I discovered this bit of information quite by accident. It seems that TempIFOs folder needs to exist (at least for some distros), with a file inside of it...hence the RipIt4Me text file (shameless promotion of RipIt4Me on my part...Ha!), before RipIt4Me can detect the DVD properly. This could be due to a flaw in a given distro, a flaw in a given distro's Wine version, or RipIt4Me (at least with reference to Linux). Who knows...who cares...but this fixed it for me.
Have a good day, and good luck.
