Problem installing "libdvdcss" library.


Hello gentlemen, this is my first thread in this site so I guess I'm glad to meet you. I'm currently running SUSE 10.2 on my laptop and in order to make kaffeine work, I need the libdvdcss library. The program links me here to download it, so I download the .tar.gz file and uncompress it on my desktop. People told me that I need to use the following commands after this:

Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install
Unfortunately the system won't recognise the 1st command, I get the following message:

Code:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
Any solutions to my problem? I'm really psyched with kaffeine, I want to make it work so that I get to watch my first movie in Linux.

Cheers.

Since you're running suse, i would recommend downloading the .rpm file. This will save you time.

Ok gentlemen this is definitely to be laughed at. Once I decompressed the file I took little notice that there was a folder named libdvdcssblablabla inside the actual libdvdcssblablabla folder. Once I typed the commands in the proper folder they worked. At least I hope they did. Will repost if a new problem occurs.

Thanks, what's the difference between the other file and the rpm?

I'm still experiencing problems with kaffeine. I tried 2 dvds on, and it reads:

Quote:
The source can't be read.

Maybe you don't have enough rights for this, or source doesn't contain data (e.g no disc in drive) (error reading from dvd)
I had a look at the data displayed in the terminal and from what I can gather the realtionship of kaffeine and encrypted dvds is rather problematic. What can I do about this? Of course I'm propably straying from the original topic, maybe a new thread should be made, we shall see.

Edit: Also, may I note that after typing the make install command I noticed some error messages ibeing displayed on the terminal.

Yes I forgot too mention that when doing the following:

Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
When entering the command

Code:
make install
you have to go into root by using the "su" command.

For kaffeine, personally I feel xine or mplayer are better for dvd purposses.

Har har, it worked with sudo. Thanks man.

Btw, I had a look at the /lib folder and I can't find any "libdvdcss.so" file. Or was the original tar.gz file supposed to extract numerous smaller .so files in that folder? I hope I'm not being obscure... =/
