Cant play dvds
 
When i insert a dvd into the dvd drive real player is launched and i get an error

Quote:

The source seems encrypted, and can't be read. Are you trying to play an encrypted DVD without libdvdcss?
I followed the instructions on this page


http://ubuntu.wordpress.com/2005/12/...cs-for-ubuntu/

I used sudo gedit to add

Code:

deb http://packages.freecontrib.org/ubuntu/plf/ breezy free non-free
to /etc/apt/sources.list


and followed with

Code:

$sudo apt-get update

and got this error?

Breezy is a pretty old distro of Ubuntu, it might be hard to find working repositories for it(thats just my thinking, I'm sure there's still some out there)...

Anyways, on the link you posted, read down a bit, and you'll see this...

Quote:

For the future, if the repositories above are not available, let me remind myself that I can find libdvdcss2 and w32codecs specially built for Ubuntu at the following locations:
libdvdcss2 : ftp://cipherfunk.org/pub/packages/ub...ibd/libdvdcss/
w32codecs : ftp://cipherfunk.org/pub/packages/ub...n/w/w32codecs/
did you try checking those two? It doesn't look like you'll have much luck with those either, my only other suggestion would be to upgrade to either Dapper or Edgy.

Yes, both links are broken!


How do you install a newer version of ubuntu? Can you do it with apt-get from the terminal?

I have set up a sort of a system monitor using my own scripts and iv set them to update every 5 mins using crontab.

If i installed a new distro version would all these scripts and settings be gone??

My guess is, yes, they would be gone.... I'm not saying you couldn't re-do them in Dapper or Edgy, but I think the problem you're running in to, is Breezy is so old, most of the repositories have been closed. I *think* you could do a kernel upgrade to Dapper, but I've always just backed up files, and done a clean install, it seems to work better.

Only other suggestion I have, is you could try EasyUbuntu...

It doesn't support Edgy yet, but supposedly still supports Dapper and Breezy, so I'm assuming the repos it accesses are still open...
