    Can' t get DVD:Ripper or acidrip to work. Maybe someone can help.
    When I execute DVD::Riper, the Dependency Check window opens and indicates the software needed is not installed, The only app it recognizes is mplayer. I have everything that is on that list installed in its proper place.
    I have joined the mailing list but do not recieve any replies to my requests.

    Acidrip does not recoognize anything either, no selections when I go to the help menu.

    Is it possible to edit a configuration or other files to get these programs pointed to correct paths. I know acidrip is java and will need to make some changes in paths there.

    DVD programs

    There are a variety of programs available for Linux. But because every DVD is different, I have yet to find one program that works in all cases. Instead in my case I have had to use different methods/programs, dependant on the DVD. Here are various programs, put in order roughly by function, to help one look. I may have miscategorized some of the programs, and I have not tried all of the programs.

    Since I haven't used most of these programs myself, I am curious to read about any experiences/reviews of them.

    Read the "README" file. You will see that it does not say to run "./configure", but rather gives you other instructions. In this case (and possibly in the other cases) this package does not use the "./configure" to install.

    I updated my list, adding qbDVDenc, put the order of the packages closer to alphabetical, and added some colour to the titles.

    I'm still curious to read about experiences with the various packages mentioned.

    I've use lxdvdrip and it works great except for certain movies with copyright stuff that it can't break. The only program that works to break these is dvddecrypter (for win) using wine. I've tried a lot of different programs on linux and none as others have also stated can do it all. So I've sunk to depths of wine and use dvddecrypter and dvdshrink. These work great under wine once you get them configured but of course I wish I wasn't win emulating. Might give some others a try sometime but right now I don't have the time or patience. But as far as the original post in this thread goes. Use MENCODER get over the fear of a bunch of options and a long command because it really is pretty simple and can do a lot of things. It is trial and error but your not burning or anything so you really are just wasting time not discs. Also dvdbackup works pretty good if you don't care about file size but I don't think it will do xvid or divx just a simple backup.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    Thanks. I tend to use dvdbackup. I tried lxdvdrip from the command line earlier this week, but the DVD I picked was too challenging, and it didn't succeed. K9copy also couldn't handle the same DVD. But dvdbackup was successful in ripping the DVD to my hard drive.

    I updated my list above, adding Videotrans [a set of scripts that convert a movie file in any format that mplayer understands to a DVD-compatible VOB file, doing all the necessary conversions automatically. An automatic DVD menu generator is also provided.]
    http://videotrans.sourceforge.net/

    I've only just started to dabble with it. In some respects, Videotrans reminds me of the command line "tovid".

    I didn't really have time to look at full site of VIDEOTRANS but you described it as a bunch of scripts. So the question remains what software does this bunch of scripts utilize to rip the backup of a DVD. If I understand correctly from your description it is just a script which would utilize other programs to do the dirty work. Maybe I'm wrong and this post is premature. Once again though the main problem I have found with linux ripping programs is an inability to deal with protected movies such as ARCOSS and the like. Or even programs that have complex CSS protections...I think.
