Hi--I've seen a couple topics similar to this one on the forum, and have tried all of the advice listen on each one of them.  I wanted to see if anyone else could offer some help.

I have uninstalled XINE multiple times, and installed the latest versions of libxine, xine-ui, and libdvdcss from source and from the rpm packages, as well as modified/added/deleted/changed permissions on symbolic links to my dvd drive, and it still comes up with the error "no plugin available for handling dvd://."

Is there anything I'm not doing?

My first guess is that Xine is acting that way because the plugins are not working.  When I attempted to play a DVD movie in Suse with Totem, it came back with a message that it couldn't for legal reasons so I switched to Mandrake 10.1 and got the plugins to work.  There were four in all and I can't remember the names plus I am in Suse at the moment.  I'll post the Mandrake filenames later today and you can see if you can find the source code at least if the Mandrake library rpms do not work.  I was quite pleased with Totem which among other things allowed me to change aspect ratios as well as other options.  I will be interested in your progress since I want to make Suse my main distribution and the others in my sig as standby.  You should find the directory Suse uses since it may niot be the same as Mandrake.

Well, Suse apparently puts in crippled plugins by default, so just installing the correct plugins isn't enough, you have to uninstall the Xine libraries completely and then re-install.    I'm not sure if I got all of the detritus, though, because I have no idea where this error is still coming from.

Disabling them would explain the message I got.  In any event here are the Mandrake files.
1.  libdvdcontrol9-0.9.2-1plf.i586.rpm
2.  libdvdcontrol9-devel-0.9.2-1plf.i586.rpm
3.  libdvdcss2-1.2.8-2plf.i586.rpm
4.  libdvdcss2-devel-1.2.8-2plf.i586.rpm
5.  divx4linux-20020418-3plf.i586.rpm

These were installed with the Mandrake package manager urpmi and plf refers to the Penguin Liberation Front.  IIRC the download site was ftp://ftp.free.fr.  Please post the files you removed and where you found the replacements.   Suse makes greater use of the /opt directory putting KDE files there unlike Mandrake.  I did not look for Xine but I assume it would be in /usr somewhere.

All you need is few packages to get dvd working and the reason why SuSE didnot provide dvd support is because, it's illegal to do so in Germany. The dvd unencryption part is illegal in some places.

See my link below for DVD support.

I did get the necessary packages, though.  And I uninstalled all the old versions.  Everything is there, but it's not working.  Are there hidden files specific to Suse that I have to delete/modify?
