as far as i know totem doesn't come with a dvd decoder(legal issues). how to set it up with a decoder lib like libdvdcss2 i don't know. u could get several dvd players that will decode like mplayer, xine, and videolan, to name a few. they would let u decode by including the aforementioned lib. good luck.
quit moping dr. d. learning to work with linux will require a little effort. go to http;//xine.sf.net, there u will find instructions on d/loading and installing xine. or www.videolan.org for vlc. personally i use xine for my dvds installation is easy and watch for dependencies. the dvd decoder lib is libdvdcss u will need it.
I already tried libdvdcss. Anyhow, nothing changed. I didn't think it was related to my decoder.
What's up with the strange phenominon when somebody mentions something they'd like to see improved, and get rude flames in return? It's like some of you are paranoid that some aspects of the linux world might actually not be perfect. Quit moping Dr. D? I know as well as any of you that getting things to work under linux takes quite a bit of time sometimes.
