Fresh core/hybrid install of 10.04 (downloaded a couple days ago). Hardware is Dell Dimension E521, AMD 64 x2 4200+ with 4 GB Ram, 250GB HD, DVD RW drive. Everything seemed to go well...at least I didn't catch any errors.
I went through the setup wizard ok and got it working as expected. Detected all my devices with no issues.
I popped in a DVD, it detects the disc but will not play...says it's defective or dvdcss is not installed. I read that was necessary for play of encrypted discs. After some searching I read I could install it via "add software" or command line. I tried add software first and it just opens a page with a black window with nothing in it. I thought maybe it took time for it to build the list but it never populates. So I went to the KDE desktop and opened a Konsole and ran sudo apt-get update, then sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras. It looked like it installed a lot of packages etc. Then I restarted the server.
I tried loading my copy of Ironman 2 and got a message the disc was detected, then a message that it was either damaged or dvdcss was not installed.
Not much good as a media center if you can't even play a dvd.
Any help would be appreciated.
