Angry K3b doesn't rip DVDs like the KDE handbook claims


Right, here's an 'easy' one. Or so it seemed.

I quote the K3b handbook featured in the KDE handbook
**********************************************************
Ripping the DVD

First step is to chose the title/movie you want to rip. For this click on the drive icon of your dvd drive. <I assume in the k3b main window>. The longest movie sequence is automaticly selected, Right click on the title and choose copy.
********************************************************
Ok, i do everything up to the right click to choose copy. It's not there. OK i could copy the VOBs across in a million other ways, but this method genorates the xml needed for the encoding process. I've had a look round the K3b site and the question ahs been assked witin the last month and has been left unanswered.

I'm using
K3b 0.11.12
with all the plugins but emovix and vcdx*
on Fedora Core 2

Also have it on mandrake 10 on my g/f's laptop using the weird mandrake cvs snapshot forked code peice of crap. It has the same plugins and the same problems... butt i'm not brave enought to play with that.....


Please tell me i'm not being horrendously stupid. And yes i know there are other ways to rip dvd's, but this looks like the only way that I could show my dad how to use witout too much effort. And lets face it, whilst the just techniclal-enoungh-to-be-annoying can't use the user-freindly gui, there's still going to be M$ in the world....

Sorry for piggybacking but I've got the same problem with k3b (mdk 10.0).

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

Now when i ran a fleet of windows machines we had undocumented features, somehow i thought documented unfeatures don't usually exist. The usual pain is unfeatured documentation.......

K3b doesnt do anything... its JUST A FRONTEND !
if it doesnt rip dvd's it means either your DVD ripper doesnt work, or you havnt installed one.

Ok, so what packages do I need to install for the ripping under K3b to work?

[sarcasm]here's a random guess[/sarcasm].... have a look in the settings. then hit the programs tab... there will prb be some missing.

i am ofcourse assuming you installed k3m from a binary package ?

if you compiled yourself, you may not have had the DVD dependency's at compile time.
if the ./configure script doesnt find a non-vital dependancy, it just tends to compile without the functionality that that dependency created.

I have all the progrmmes listed there apart from e-movix support, which I'm fairly sure i dont need.

I installed K3b from a binary via yum on the fedora box and I believe the mandrake box is using the k3b rpm straight off of the Mandrake 10 disks
