I have DVD Rebuilder Pro and CCE basic running on Linux with very good results. My friend who also built my current computer is the one who turned me on to Linux and set everything up for me. Since then I have been very impressed with it's performance compared to Windows XP. I thought I would post a copy of the guide he has been working on how to set this up, this is still a work in progress. Also he is looking for people to try it out and get some feedback. DVD Rebuilder in Linux Here is a rough draft of my guide, no screen shots yet. I would really like some testers to try it out once it is finished. This is still a work in progress and any and all input will be appreciated. DVD Rebuilder in Linux using Wine This guide is for DVD Rebuilder Pro or Free on Ubuntu Edgy Eft 6.10 and the latest version of Wine. I will also cover the installation of DVD Decrypter, Ripit4Me, and ImgBurn. VobBlanker also works well using this set-up. Wine is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X and Unix. Think of Wine as a compatibility layer for running Windows programs. Wine does not require Microsoft Windows, as it is a completely free alternative implementation of the Windows API consisting of 100% non-Microsoft code, however Wine can optionally use native Windows DLLs if they are available. Wine provides both a development toolkit for porting Windows source code to Unix as well as a program loader, allowing many unmodified Windows programs to run on x86-based Unixes, including Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Solaris. Configuring Wine Most of the most common configuration changes can be done with the Winecfg tool. 1. In terminal type: winecfg 2. Change the setting under tab "Applications" for Windows Version to "Windows NT 4.0". DVD Decrypter needs this setting. 3. Select the tab "Drives". 4. Press the button "Autodetect" to let Winecfg automatically detect the drives available on your system. 5. On some systems it might be needed to also select the device letter for your DVD reader/burner and then press the "Show Advanced" button and then set the "Type" to "CD-ROM" in the drop-down list. When you are done, press the "Apply" button. 6. You are now done and can press the OK button to close down Winecfg. Downloads You will need the following DLL’s mfc42.dll, msvcp60.dll, advpack.dll, asycfilt.dll, comcat.dll, msvbvm60.dll, oleaut32.dll, olepro32.dll, stdole2.tlb. All of these need to be placed into the .wine\drive_c\windows\system32 folder 1. Download and install DVD Decrypter 2. Download and install the Ripit4Me installer from the official site! 3. Trespasser’s NO DVD fix. Open up your text editor and type “Welcome to Ripit4Me” then save this file as “Ripit4Me” Create a new file named “TempIFOs” and place the Ripit4Me text file inside. All you need to do now is copy and paste the TempIFOs file into .wine/drive_c/windows/temp folder. 4. Download and install DVD Shrink 5. Download and install ImgBurn 6. Download and install Cinema Craft Encoder, I use CCE Basic and it works great. 7. Download and install the DVD Rebuilder installer, If you plan on using the pro version you will need to request the key file via e-mail (email@example.com). Just make sure you include your registered e-mail address and the SYSTEM ID that is shown on the registration screen. After downloading the key you will need to place it in the .wine\drive_c\Program Files\DVD-RB PRO folder (Screen shot Under Construction) Next we need to set oleaut.dll to native by running winecfg 8. Under the Applications tab Add application from menu ie Rebuilder.exe 9. Under Libraries tab add oleaut32 and edit it so it is " native " windows only , click apply etc. 10. It's also a good idea to first run both DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter before you run RipIt4me for the first time. Insert a DVD in your DVD reader/burner and check that they can detect the inserted disc. If this works, then you should have no problems with disc detections/readings in RipIt4Me. If you get detection/reading problems, check the settings in winecfg.. Added some screen shots and still in heavy testing.
