    Help a Kubuntu newb?


    I just downloaded libdvdcss, and unpacked it. I can't get it to install though.
    I've installed the c, and c++ libraries, which were needed, but it's still kicking my ***. The config.log file is too long to post here, but if one of you who knows this stuff is willing to assist, I'll email it to you. Just send me a private message, and I'll send it as soon as I check my messages again.
    Many thanks.

    Paste these three commands (you don't need C and C++ libraries) in the Konsole:
    Code:
    wget -c http://packages.freecontrib.org/plf/pool/dapper/i386/free/libdvdcss2/libdvdcss2_1.2.9-1plf3_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libdvdcss2_1.2.9-1plf3_i386.deb
    rm libdvdcss2_1.2.9-1plf3_i386.deb

    Oh yeah. The deb file was in the package. It gets to a certain point during configure, and it refuses to go further. I can't send it from this computer (Mandriva 2006), but it doesn't matter anymore. Installing flash in Firefox was all it took to crash the whole install.
    I liked the look of Kubuntu, but if it's that fragile, I don't need it.
