Linux Support / MPV Media player doesn´t play my DVDs on Ubuntu
« on: June 20, 2021, 06:43:10 pm »
Guys MPV doesn´t play my DVDs from my plug in DVD drive on my Ubuntu MacBook. When I launch the icon a box comes up which says to drop files or a URL but there is nothing in it to do it with.

Linux Support / My scanner doesn´t work on Ubuntu

I plugged my old windows scanner into my MacBook running on Ubuntu and although the light on the scanner is on the Macbook says that it cannot connect to it.
There´s nothing wrong with the scanner as it works great on my Peppermint netbook. What could be the problem guys?

Guys I don´t know if there is some setting I need to do when viewing and posting on this forum, but the font size is tiny! And when I either zoom in with my touch screen Chromebook, or use the usual zoom on my MacBook it goes right over to the right so I cannot see what I am typing. I have to practically have my nose right up to the screen. Can you make it square and larger?

Hi guys! My brother sent me a Macbook Pro that he's put Ubuntu on ( he doesn't know which version for sure, but he thinks it's the latest version). I am used to Peppermint so it took me a bit of looking around to find out how to add new software ( in Peppermint it's via the software manager). it took less than 5 mins to install VLC. It all looks fine ( I have that on my Peppermint netbook) but I cannot figure out how to play a DVD from the external DVD player I have. I admit I had trouble figuring it out on the netbook when I first tried, and I cannot remember what I did to make it play, but it played great. I even had my big monitor connected so I had a big screen ( the netbook is teensy). This Macbook has quite a big screen so it'd be good if I could watch DVDs on it.

Is there another DVD player software I could install? VLC seems a bit tricky really.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

P.S My main laptop is my Chromebook, but of course it has no facility for external DVD players ( no codecs).
