This guide will get you running DVD's under any Linux distribution.
My folks recently bought and sent me two DVDs, but the only DVD player I have is in my Linux-based computer. Using the free software application MPlayer, I was able to watch my videos. I'll walk you through the easy steps required.

I used Slackware GNU/Linux v10.0 on an AMD Athlon, but the techniques apply to any distro on x86 hardware and even to BSD-based operating systems. I'll assume here that you are a user of GNU/Linux, that you're running the X Window System with some window manager (it doesn't matter which), that you know how to get to a command prompt and do basic directory navigation and file manipulation, and that you know what a symbolic link is.
