"I didn't see a config file in wine when I was logged in as root though"

I suggest totally overwrite your wine config files with the sample to start again from scratch.

locate your sample config file. Mine is in "/usr/share/doc/wine-20050530/samples/config"

so cp /usr/share/doc/wine-20050530/samples/config ~/.wine/config

and as root

cp /usr/share/doc/wine-20050530/samples/config /root/.wine/config

as root edit /root/.wine/config and change the "Windows"="win98" line to "Windows"="nt40"

try nt40 this time, I read a few Suse users that this seemed to work for them.

also as user edit ~/.wine/config and make the same change.

check ~/.wine/dosdevices do you have a simlink in there for your drive? Is it readable? Writeable? Also check /root/.wine/dosdevices and see if there is a simlink there for your drive. If not, you need to create one

ln -s (insert /media/cdrecorder or /mnt/cdrom or whatever your device is here) ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:

do the same to /root/.wine/dosdevices

if all that doesn't work, then maybe you have a problem with your Suse libdvdcss package. I read somewhere that it lacks support for encrypted DVD's for legal reasons.
Try to download the latest libdvdcss.rpm for your distro

If you need $20 for an answer, you might consider CrossOver Office. The Pro version costs $80, the Standard, $40, and I know that 4.2 does work with DVDShrink.

x preceding xDVDShrink suggests that's it's designed X11, linux's GUI. so it probably does come with a frontend. read
Code:
man xdvdshrink
maybe there's a switch to load the front end or you should atleast find some info on how to run the frontend. At the top or maybe the bottom, it might say something like, "see also:xDVDshrinkgui" and that'll be the frontend name.

I don't know if you said you were using Suse 9.3 or not but as said before in your wine config change it to windows version to winxp and as for not seeing your dvd, if it's suse 9.3, for example if the dvd is LINUX_THE_MOVIE, it will appear on your system as /media/LINUX_THE_MOVIE, in wine dosdevices rm f: if the link is there and

ln -s /media/LINUX_THE_MOVIE f:

Maybe help with dvdshrink.

Ok, I finally gave up on wine and shrink, I got Synaptic going and installed xDVDShrink and am ok with it for now.

I would just like something that would do an ENTIRE DVD (menus and all) Maybe later.

Thanks to everyone that helped out here.

dvd shink aspi failed

Hi,

I am running Mandriva Linux 2005 Limited Edition, I am tring to get DVD Shrink 3.2 running on my system with wine and xwine gui, I can not find the winecfg or wineconfig anywhere but there is a wine configerer in the xwine menu, after looking trough alot of posts on the topic I figured out how to direct dvd shrink to my cdrom drive and recognize the disks name, but when I click on open, it sends back a message saying "dvd Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue, Failed to initialize ASPI Device" here is a cut and past of my konsol window after launching dvd shrink and trying to open a disk:

DVDShrink in Linux Tutorial

Explanation
Reasons for this tutorial:
You can traditionally grab the main feature, compress it, but it won't keep the DVD intact at all. It will remove
menus, extras, etc.There is no program that runs natively in Linux that duplicate a DVD and compress it (hopefully, soon).
So you use some good ol' fashion WINE skills. It's pretty simple. I'm writing this article assuming you know,
or can figure out how to use DVDShrink. This is just to get you there.

Why you want everything intact: Archival purposes?
What this tutorial will help you do: Decrypt a dvd, and run DVDShrink in Linux

Preperation
If you don't already have wine. Get it. And after you get this done you can have some real wine to celebrate.
Now really, you don't need to do much. Debian has wine it apt-get. Gentoo has wine in portage. Mandriva has RPMs. Redhat has RPMs. Hell, even your mother might have some wine binaries laying around. If you use LFS or Slackware or something you can get WINE at :
h**p://www.winehq.org/site/download
That site includes rpms and Slackware .tgz's and just about everything.
If you have redhat or something. Install the rpm
Go into rootLook in your home directory/.wine
# cd ~/.wine
# ls
There might be a drive_c directory with a Program Files directory in it (that's how my configuration is).
Just remember where it is
$ su -
# rpm -i winepackage.rpm
That should take care of it.

Now get DVDShrink. You can find it yourself. Make sure it's not a knockoff DVD Shrink.
Unzip the file.
# unzip dvdshrink32setup.zip
# wine dvdshrink32setup.exe

Now if you have never used wine before now's a good time to open another terminal and find out where your fake windows directory is.
Look in your home directory/.wine
# cd ~/.wine
# ls
There might be a drive_c directory with a Program Files directory in it (that's how my configuration is).
Just remember where it is (or you won't be able to find it)
Now just pull a windows and keep pressing next until it asks you to create desktop shortcut (if you don't have an icon desktop {like I don't} then don't create a desktop shortcut. Logic) Don't have it run after it's done installing.

Remember your wine directory? I hope you do.

Well cd into it
# cd whatever/directory/you/were/supposed/to/remember
# cd Program Files
# cd DVDShrink
# wine "DVD Shrink 3.2.exe"

Does it work? Good. It should. Now exit it. Remember those steps and exit DVD Shrink.
Pop the DVD into your dvd drive (Assuming you have DVD working, if not, get it workng).
Get the program dvdbackup (it's a terminal application).
If you use Gentoo just
# emerge dvdbackup
I'm sure debian has it too.
# apt-get install dvdbackup

Okay, now for every other Linux distro.

# wget h**p://dvd-create.sourceforge.net/dvdbackup-0.1.1.tar.gz
(Hopefully you have libdvdread if not, get it at h**p://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/ Explaining how to install this is off topic for this tutorial).
# tar -zxvf dvdbackup-0.1.1.tar.gz
# cd dvdbackup-0.1.1
# cd src
# gcc -o dvdbackup -ldvdread dvdbackup.c
If it compiles without error. You can now copy it to /usr/bin
# cp dvdbackup /usr/bin
Now set permissions. Best way is whatever your dvd drive's ownership settings should be set to the dvdbackup binary.

EXAMPLE:
root@microsoft # ls -l /dev/hdc
brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 22, 0 Aug 26 13:37 /dev/hdc
root@microsoft # chown root:cdrom /dev/hdc

Okay, now, you have a working dvdbackup.

You don't have to run the following commands as root, if you have proper permissions (e.g. a cdrom group). But either way.
You should have /dev/dvd as a symlink to /dev/hdc
But find a big place to store you're 6-8 gig dvd files.

# dvdbackup -M -i /dev/dvd -o /lots/of/freespace

Unfortunately, you can't shrink a directory using disc backup so you need to make it an ISO. (yes you need lots of disk space)

# mkisofs -dvd-video -udf -o dvd.iso /path/to/folder/where/VIDEO_TS/is/in

You might want to delete the original data directory before you move on

Now remember how to run DVD Shrink? Do that.
Open an iso file to get to your dvd files. The root partition is Z: for me. Proceed as normal.
Burn the files with any burner of your choice.
Let me know I forgot to add anything

This is my tutorial. Please don't post it in other places without adding that it was by compiled and perhaps asking for permission first.
