SuSE, openSUSE When you install OpenSUSE, one of the first things you may wish to do is to install new applications or support for restricted media playback. To do this, you'll need to configure your repositories. This blog post explains how it's done.

One of the great things about OpenSUSE is that it's extremely easy to install support for all of the common restricted formats, including encrypted DVDs.

Go to http://opensuse-community.org/Restricted_Formats, click on the version (11.4 if a new install) and then select the link for KDE or Gnome.

Simple (albeit not legal in some jurisdictions)!

Most mainstream distributions have made this pretty easy. It's no more difficult to add Medibuntu to an Ubuntu system than it is to add the restricted formats repo to opensuse, for example. Even some of the more diy distros like Archlinux make this easy:
pacman -S libdvdcss gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
Well, for GNOME anyway. I can't comment on KDE as I don't use it. The legality of it may be debateable, but personally, I'll be damned if someone's going to tell me on which devices I'm permitted to play my legally purchased dvds or music.
