 I would like to use DeVeDe  3.7 but can't find any documentation to use it other than in Spanish. Does anyone else use DeVeDe successfully ? Could you help me get this app going to copy some dvd's ?

Thanx

Is there a reason you want to use DeVeDe rather than K3B, which does a splendid job of copying DVDs?

Can K3b shrink the dvd, as well as copy it ?

I don't think so, though I've never wanted to do that so I've never looked. Maybe someone else knows for sure.

You are right VL seems to lack good dvd backup application.  I tried dvdrip from the repositories but it fails to launch, after install.

K9copy seems to me to be the best one in terms of ease of use and reliability. But it does depend on some KDE libraries. As there is no other suitable alternative, k9copy, may be the way to go.

I couldnt find k9copy in the current vl 6.0 repositories, but you should be able to install fom the 5.9 repositories.

First use gslapt to install kdelibs 3.5.10
Then download k9copy from here...
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/extra/x-apps/k9copy-1.0.4_2-i586-1vl59.tlz
then right click and installpkg.

That should be it, as I think all the other dependencies are already installed, (you may already have kdelibs 3.5.10 as well, I did.). If not here is the dependecy list.  Just install whatever gslapt say is not already installed.
Code:
acl >= 2.2.39_1-i486-2

fontconfig >= 2.4.2-i486-2
freetype >= 2.3.5-i486-1
gamin >= 0.1.8-i486-2
gcc >= 4.1.2-i486-1
glibc-solibs >= 2.5-i486-5
kdelibs >= 3.5.8-i586-2vl59
kdelibs >= 3.5.8-i586-2vl59 | kdm-small >= 3.5.5-i586-2vl58

Just to follow up on a few things - DeVeDe isn't for making backups of pre-existing DVDs (though there are ways you could use it for that), but for authoring DVDs from video files in various formats.  If, for example, you have a tv show in xvid format from ... somewhere ... you can easily use DeVeDe to convert it to mpeg2, create the DVD tree structure, then wrap it up as an ISO ready to burn to disk.  I've heard that some people do this.  Wink

My brother uses k9copy to back up the DVDs for his son (my nephew!), since the originals in the hands of a 3 year old tend to get scratched, broken, or hidden under the dog's bed.  K9copy, as far as I've seen, produces good quality back-ups.

Remember, though, that all such software breaks copy protection (CSS) and is therefore illegal in many countries, including the US (DMCA) and possibly Canada in the future.

package assembled and installed successfully ! a better appreciation for all coders and packagers. at least temporarily.
Also I'll be happy to help out packaging, but only after I build my new pc.
