ripping DVDs


hi i am trying to rip a dvd of mine with no success.
I've tried with "Thoggen" first but it gives me the "Failed to retrieve DVD title detains for some reason. Maybe you do not have libdvdcss2 installed?"

i have looked in my synapstic package manager. and it says libdvdcss2 is installed.

at one point, trying out solutions on various posts, i've tried to reinstalled it. but first its the repositorie.
Code:
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/intrepid.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
--2012-04-09 15:28:38--  http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/intrepid.list

You can use Handbrake. It works really well with a lot of options and it can rip dvd in many major formats like in MPEG4 also.

Linux Mint usually install all these codecs during installation (unless you installed Mint without codec from the begining)
However to back up movie DVDs I use K9Copy, and I like that program alot, you can install it from Synaptic.
Keep in mind that while the software is creating the file under whatever you choose to created it keeps a copy under the /tmp directory so if your root partition is getting full of stuff the software will complaint about it.

Give K9copy a chance and good luck to you!

it is why i chose linux mint thinking it would be easier to regular day-to-day operation.

unfortunately for me, handbrake isn't in my synaptic, and couldn't complete installation from the release page because the instruction fall short abruptly, and i'm not knowledgeable enough to know how to do it.

on the k9copy end, it was also a failure since the program crashes every time i try to "open".

i'm currently trying dvd::rip without success so far. it appears it is missing "dvdrip-data" from the installation.

There was a problem with the PPA for handbrake with MINT 12, so for that there is an easy workaround for that, to use the snapshots ppa instead:

Code:
# apt-add-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-snapshots
# apt-get update
# apt-get install handbrake-gtk handbrake-cli
