I'm not sure that request can be addressed on LQ. It's technically piracy related, because the process involves at least one violation of DMCA. It is a forbidden subject on the forums. So, I'd maybe look elsewhere for help.

It is not a violation.

Blue-ray ripper by Leawo is a commercial product.

It however does not have a Linux version, only Windows and MAC.

Therefore the only way to run it using a Linux system would be to either use WINE or run a Windows virtual machine on a Linux machine.

I believe OP means 'any', not a particular one, from Title: "a blu-ray ripper".
Although it may be a user-created dvd, it's likely a commercial movie, with restricted rights.
I agree with #2, and suggest OP spend some time studying LQ Rules and FAQ,
which covers 'search the web first, before posting'.
Here's an obvious web-search: blu-ray ripper on linux
(but don't attempt to discuss anything of questionable legality; LQ has wonderfully high standards!)

Welcome to LQ sophialiu; sorry your 1st post didn't turn out well; come back & try again!
Best wishes!

Hey sophialiu,

I do this regularly to temporarily copy some of my Blurays to my laptop for vacation viewing ... You need the libbluray and libaacs librairies and thereafter the tools are a matter of preference. I use makemkv in combination with handbrake.

As others have stated, depending on your jurisdiction, the laws governing the usage of such tools vary and you should make sure before.

@ OP

You can use a program called makeMKV. It is cross platform for windows and linux.

Do a google or youtube search on installing and using makemkv.
