Blu Ray Ripping on Fedora 18

After doing so searching on Blu Ray ripping on Linux I found that no one seemed to have a good how to for Blu Ray Ripping on Fedora 18. I also was not finding a method that worked consistently for free, or close to free. I found a great piece of software called MakeMKV.  I was able to get Blu Ray ripping working fast and easy.

MakeMKV is free to try for 30 days, after that the ask for 50$ for the purchase. I really think this is a good buy. It was one of the better programs I have found for Blu Ray ripping and they support Linux.

Here are the easy staps to get MakeMKV set up and running on Fedora 18. First I would go through the Fedora 18 Tips and Tricks and get all your codecs installed.


Now follow this how to:

1. Install all the software that is required to build MakeMKV on Fedora 18.

Become SuperUser

su

yum update

 

yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

 

yum install openssl-devel qt4-devel expat-devel

2. Dowload the Makemkv programs which comes in 2 parts.

http://www.makemkv.com/download/makemkv-bin-1.7.10.tar.gz

http://www.makemkv.com/download/makemkv-oss-1.7.10.tar.gz

3. Unpack the downloads.

tar -zxvf makemkv-bin-1.7.10.tar.gz

tar -zxvf makemkv-oss-1.7.10.tar.gz

4. Build the software.

cd makemkv-bin-1.7.10

make -f makefile.linux

su -c 'make -f makefile.linux install'

Repeat for the other directory.

cd makemkv-oss-1.7.10

make -f makefile.linux

su -c 'make -f makefile.linux install'

5. Start the program by typing:

makemkv

There you go. MakeMKV should be up and running.

Fedora 18 Tips and Tricks

Here are my Fedora 18 Tips and Tricks.

I have installed the new version of Fedora, Fedora 18. Here is how I installed everything to make it usable.

I was having problems finding our old friends at dnmouse who made Autoten/Autoplus. So one of my friends told me about Fedorautils.

 

 

 

To install Fedorautils:

su -c "curl http://master.dl.sourceforge.net/project/fedorautils/fedorautils.repo -o /etc/yum.repos.d/fedorautils.repo"

Then,

su -c "yum install fedorautils"

After installation, launch Fedora Utils from Applications > System Tools or type fedorautils in the terminal and start installing.

 

Everything worked great for me. I did need to restart to have the Nvidia drivers work properly, but that is normal.

Now to install the codecs for Fedora 18.

Download http://rpmfusion.org/keys?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18

and  http://rpmfusion.org/keys?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora-18

Then you must copy them to your keys directory. Make sure you change the name on the copied file.

su -c  'cp RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18 /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora-18-x86_64'

su -c  'cp RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora-18 /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora-18-x86_64'

Now you can install your players and codecs.

su -c 'yum install gstreamer1 gstreamer1-plugins-good gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld gstreamer1-plugins-ugly gstreamer1-libav vlc smplayer'

 

 

Another thing you will need is Gnome Teak Tool.
yum install gnome-tweak-tool

Gimp (I use it all the time).
yum install gimp

Libre Office
yum install libreoffice

Here is how to install dropbox on Fedora 18.
Found this how to over on TechnoZeal

http://www.zealfortechnology.com/2013/01/install-dropbox-on-fedora-18.html#comment-form

 

More to come.

Sorry it took me so long to get around to this.

 

 

 

 

Fedora 17 Tips and Ticks

Here is the next instalment of Tips and Tricks, this time for the new Fedora 17. The new Auto Plus from dnmouse.org makes adding all the things that the developers left out of Fedora 17. The team at dnmouse.org has done a great job for all of us fedora users. For everything else I will show you how to add the software you need. This article was written and tested on Fedora 17.

Get up to date

First I like to make sure I have all my packages up to date.

su -c 'yum update'

This will make sure you are up to date and ready to install all the other software.

Install Auto Plus

 su -c 'yum -y --nogpgcheck install http://dnmouse.org/autoplus-1.4-5.noarch.rpm'

Now just open Auto Plus which should be listed under System Tools and start installing your software.

 

Make sure to install all the codecs! The Skype installed great!

Skype

Skype now installs through AutoPlus.

 

Yumex

Of course install Yumex one of my favorites.

yum install yumex

Open Terminal for Nautilus

This allows you to open a terminal window, with a right button click, in a directory in the Nautilus file browser.

su -c 'yum install nautilus-open-terminal nautilus-extensions'

 

Add the Date to your Clock

Really simple. Type this in a command line:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.clock show-date true

 

Download and install VirtualBox for Linux Host

su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/4.1.16/VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.16_78094_fedora16-1.x86_64.rpm’

 

MakeMKV

MakeMKV is your one-click solution to convert video that you own into free and patents-unencumbered format that can be played everywhere. MakeMKV is a format converter, otherwise called “transcoder”. It converts the video clips from proprietary (and usually encrypted) disc into a set of MKV files, preserving most information but not changing it in any way.

Here is the install process for Fedora. Then do your MP4s with Handbrake.

Handbrake

Now works through AutoPlus.

 

Then you have it!

(If you wish to use autoplus on rawahide/f16 then you must install the rpmfusion rawhide repo first, also vbox and dropbox wont work as there is no f16 repo’s yet)

su -c 'yum -y --nogpgcheck install http://dnmouse.org/autoplus-1.2-5.noarch.rpm'

Now just open Auto Plus which should be listed under System Tools and start installing your software.


Make sure to install all the codecs! The Skype installed failed for me.

Skype

You need to install some x86 libraries for skype to work on X64 (catch up skype!)

su -c 'yum install libXScrnSaver.i?86 libX11.i?86 libv4l.i?86 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i?86 qt-x11.i?86 libXv.i?86'

su -c 'yum install nautilus-open-terminal nautilus-extensions'

Shutdown from the Desktop

I like to do a shutdown right from the desktop. Here is how to add this to Gnome.

su -c 'yum install gnome-shell-extensions-alternative-status-menu'

Then just log out and log back in, then you have the menu below.

Install Handbrake on Ubuntu 10.04

Handbrake is a great DVD ripper. Unfortunately the version on the Handbrake website is not working. Here is a ubuntu how to  for installing Handbrake on Ubuntu 10.04.



First we need to get DVD playback enabled:

sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

Next we need to add the PPA for the Handbrake Snapshots:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-snapshots

Your system will now fetch the PPA’s key. This enables your Ubuntu system to verify that the packages in the PPA have not been interfered with since they were built.

Then do and update of the Apt repos lists:

sudo apt-get update

Next you need to install the software. Use the Ubuntu Software Center to install Handbrake. Do a search for Handbrake and install the GTK GUI.

After it installs you should have Handbrake working in Ubuntu 10.04.

Now Start Ripping!
