Question libdvdcss


Hello, (and Merry Christmas/New Year),

I have installed Debian 3.1 (Sarge) on one of my ageing Compaq M300 laptops. I am ok on with installing applications from the CD-ROM's using APTITUDE, but my problem is this:-

I would like to watch commercial DVD's. I have downloaded LIBDVDCSS and saved it to the HDD & USB memory stick/pen-drive and I would like to know how I go about installing it. As I am a 'newbie' to the LINUX command line/terminal please help me.

I have searched for similar threads and the only one I could find was for an install with another LINUX distro and I got a little lost.

Also, my USB memory stick/pen-drive is seen and avalible under 'Gnome' but not 'KDE'. How do I get 'KDE' to see it?

Many thanks,

Philip.

Hi and welcome to LQ. You can install individual applications using dpkg e.g.
Code:
#dpkg -i /path/to/some/file.deb

Why don't you install Etch (the current stable version) then edit slightly /etc/apt/sources.list
to add some repositories and install everything using aptitude.
