I've tried all these and nothing works here.  Kubuntu 8.04 was originally 
installed from a newly formatted partition. My new .rules file is the same as 
the one I renamed ".backup".  It doesn't matter whether I have "/dev/cd" 
and "/dev/dvd" or "/dev/scd0" in the Kaffien settings, I still get the 
following error:

This DVD Video is encrypted. To be able to watch it you will need to install 
libdvdcss by running from a console: 
sudo /usr/share/doc/kaffeine/install-css.sh. In some countries it is illegal 
to install the decryption software without permission from the video 
copyright holder.

When I run sudo /usr/share/doc/kaffeine/install-css.sh, I get:

...but it still doesn't run dvds.  A search doesn't find libdvdcss either.

I don't have any problems playing dvds in Mandriva 2008.1 so it can't be the 
drive.

One is a debilitating and surprisingly widespread affliction that renders the
