The way I setup DVD playback on my Ubuntu Linux:

-Make sure you have libdvdcss installed. It is probably not installed by default as it may be not compleatly legal in your country.
If your package manager does not offer it, hunt the .deb or .rpm (depends on your distro) down yourself on the net. If you use Ubuntu, just google for 'Ubuntu libdvdcss' and you should be allright.

- Use Ogle DVD Player. It works for me anyway. Just insert the DVD and chose open disk in Ogle.

Good luck.
