    Looking for Kaffeine & libdvdss2


    Thanks to retiredlaf for helping me find a download of Firefox, does anyone know a similiar link to Kaffeine and libdvdss2? Kaffeine 4 is in the distro but doesn't play DVD's, says you have to download the full version and I know I'll also need libdvdss2. I know how to get them for Mandrake but not SuSE.

    Martin,

    If your goal is to play DVDs, mplayer is able to do that..
    click here
    I haven't found a way (in the united states) to make kaffeine play (scrambled) DVDs.
    I've stopped looking since I've gotten mplayer working..

    Check his location, hes not in the US
    I was aware of that ("Martin from Dublin"). Location has an aspect to do with DVD descrambling,
    that's why I stated my location..

    I followed the steps in that post prior to installing mplayer btw and they didn't work for me..

    Install apt-get for suse (just google for it), together with synaptic, the front-end, then you will be able to install every software you want. It's a piece of cake with that. When apt-get is installed, just open a terminal, become root, type 'apt --no-checksig install [program you're looking for]. It will check the available repositories for the sw, if it founds it it will be installed.

    First you have to login to SuSE as root though, remove libxine, xine-ui and kaffeine. Then you run apt and search for those packages again. The SuSE-versions have been crippled so they cannot play dvd's. For Kaffeine i recommend though that, after installing the most recent libxine and xine-ui, you just install the version 0.4 from the dvd/cd, for the 0.6 you will need to upgrade KDE, which might be kinda tricky I'm a newbie also, i didn't try.
