    uninstalled libdvdcss2 and cant reinstall it


    i uninstalled libdvdcss2 and now get this error when i run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2
    Code:
    Package libdvdcss2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    
    E: Package 'libdvdcss2' has no installation candidate
    anyone know what the other source is that they are talking about? anyway of installing this would be great, thanks!

    Try
    Code:
     sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
    If that works then do this.
    Code:
     sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
