so I wanted to play a DVD I own which happens to be "restricted", copy-righted or whatever it's called.
so I searched and found this: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1052993/how-to-install-libdvdcss-so-2-library-to-ubuntu-18-04#
sudo apt install libdvdnav4 libdvdread4 gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly libdvd-pkg sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras
I wrote the commands exactly as written in that page but one seemed to be going on for a long time and I cleared the terminal (maybe that was wrong. derp)
anyway, I got this message:
debconf: DbDriver "config": /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another process: Resource temporarily unavailable
I've got Ubuntu 18.04 right now. I seem to recall that an earlier version let me play that DVD with no problem. Probably because those libs already came with the distro or because somehow I installed the libs, who remembers.
what can I do to fix this dopey problem? Should I reboot and try again?
