xine goes crazy
I am trying to view dvds with xine I aquired all apropriate software, then I started xine. the preformance is awful and I get 'the beep' from the computer like i was holding down a keyboard button
the trouble I am having is that when i exit xine again the keyboard and mouse configuration are all messed up. the scroll mouse doesn't operate correctly and the caps locked button reverses (as in the only way to turn caps locked off is to turn it on?)
Any help with any of this would be greatly appreciated:)
i use xine all the time for dvd playback. have you tried updating it, what distro are you using it with ? & your system specs? try starting xine from a console, post any error messages, then we can try & solve the problem
I am not getting any error messages.
distro: kubuntu breezy badger
2 ghz celeron
very new to linux
How can I check for updates for xine?
I don't know if it makes any difference but I install 'gxine 0.4.4' from the adept package program
unfortunately i know next to nothing about kubuntu, so hopefully someone else will step up to the podium & help, sorry
from command line type
it may help you isolate the problem...
