    Thank you but please do not top comment :-)

I copied your help to a terminal and it worked. Then I put it in my file 
that said simply get libdvdcss. I am now watching a movie on Totem that 
came up automatically when I put the DVD in the computer. This is nice 
and Totem even changed aspect angle to the movies's size.

    Those who yesterday suggested we load all the non-Ubuntu software 
were wrong. It had zero effect on DVD use.
