dvdx-open-edition_4.0.0-2_i386.deb

libdvdcss2_1.2.10-0.4_i386.deb

2. After the files have been downloaded, open the terminal and navigate to the folder where you have downloaded the two files. Issue the following command at the terminal –

sudo dpkg -i libdvdcss2_1.2.10-0.4_i386.deb

3. After libdvdcss2 is installed, issue the following command at the terminal –

sudo dpkg -i dvdx-open-edition_4.0.0-2_i386.deb

4. From the above output, you can see that DVDx has been was installed but there were a few errors due to missing dependencies. Don’t worry, issue the following command at the terminal to fix it all (in a Linux geek way ;)) –

sudo apt-get install mplayer-fonts mencoder

5. From the above output, you can see that the missing dependencies were installed and DVDx was installed properly. Now, click on ‘Menu>Sound & Video>DVDx 4’ to start the application.
