    Ok, after installing a couple other dependencies I managed to get Handbrake installed. I'll see how it works.

    I had to squint to see.

    There in a configure script so the sequence I gave earlier should work.

    Handbrake worked great. Took a while but I got a DVD down to 1.1GB and the quality still looks pretty good. Now I can rip some DVD's for my wife to watch on her laptop when she flies to Phoenix, AZ.

    Well done.

    If possible, post a step by step installation and usage guide as it might be useful for other users.

    I'm also thinking you could start a new thread with the words HOW TO at the beginning of its title.

    I just kind of muddled through it until I got everything installed to make it work, LOL.
    I first had to download handbrake-gtk_0.9.8+git20121007-dmo6_i386.deb
    That told me that I had a dependency that wasn't met, it was libmp3lame0_3.99.5-dmo2_i386.deb so I installed that after downloading it. Then I was told when I tried to install handbrake that I still had a dependency that was not met which was libx264-130_0.130.2274+gitc832fe9-dmo1_i386.deb. Once that was in then the original handbrake package would install and that was it. Not sure if the DVD playback codec was needed, I installed it before all of this so I could play DVD's on VLC, it's libdvdcss2_1.2.13-0_i386.deb. I guess it might be something needed to play back DVD's so it'd be good to install.
    Anyway, that's how I did it, just kind of felt my way through until I got things up and running. Not sure why it's not easier or why I couldn't get any of the DVD Rippers in my Synaptic Package Manager or by "sudo apt-get install". Hope my explanation of how I installed it will help someone out.

    P.S.
    You might be able to find some of the packages here:

    Been ripping a few more DVD's that I own and converting them to .mkv format so I can put em' on USB and watch them on my little Netbook. This is pretty cool, too bad I didn't figure out how to do this a few months ago.
