I want to make a copy of a DVD with Brasero. But it asks for libdvdcss.so.2.

I already did what was suggested at How should I install libdvdcss.so.2 (Library) to Ubuntu 16.04

But it didn't work.

This worked for me

Try (this may not be needed for Ubuntu 20.04)

    sudo apt install libdvdread4

Do

    sudo apt install libdvdnav4 gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly libdvd-pkg
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg 
    sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras

After that I was able to copy the DVD with brasero.

    Ubuntu requires the additional command sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg after the first command above. Aug 13, 2018 at 20:07
  • On Focal 20.04 it's libdvdread7 now.

  • libdvdread4 (or 7 on Focal) is not enough. The package libdvd-pkg (it's included also in the first line under Do above, so the commands under Do work.

For Ubuntu 20.04

sudo apt install libdvdnav4 gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly libdvd-pkg
sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg
sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras

To do the above without user interaction, add -y after each apt install and --frontend=noninteractive after pkg-reconfigure.

Note libdvdread4 is unavailable in Ubuntu 20.04, but seems unneeded.
