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 CNR.com
type in kaffeine player in search
hit install button
next
type gdebi in search
hit install button
last
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

Thumbs up Thanks Ehawk

Systems are up and running. Your post to the 2nd forum in your first reply directed me to the proper installer and file. I have Kaffeine and Xine working now. awesome. Linux is great.
