This is the first machine I've installed 64 bit to.  Everything went fine.  Installed Open Office and Krita.  Copied all my data and pictures onto the machine.  Said goodbye to Windows.  One dfference is this one has a DVD drive.
So I tried watching a movie and couldn't get it to open.
Tried several threads to get it to work.  But I stopped trying after one thread said install VLC.  I thought that was odd because one of the changes with version 9 was abandon VLC in favor of Xplayer.  Tried it anyway and got the following during the install:
libdvd-pkg: Checking orig.tar integrity...
/usr/src/libdvd-pkg/libdvdcss_1.4.2.orig.tar.bz2: OK
libdvd-pkg: `apt-get check` failed, you may have broken packages. Aborting...

I looked up fixing broken packages and managed to repair them.
The following seemed to be step one: sudo apt-get install libdvd-pkg
That seemed to run fine.
Some threads said to run: sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2
Got: libdvd-pkg is already the newest version (1.4.2-1-1).
Mounted the Disc manually did not help.
Found a fix that re-enabled auto run which involved downloading and running peppermint-volman_0.0.0.1_amd64.
It tries to run the movie when you put it in but only the intro would play.  No Chapters to continue to.
Then I tried the VLC install problem mentioned above.
VLC is still there but will not work either.  Same as xplayer it won't move on that the menu of the move.  You hit play and  nothing plays.  Just a big orange cone in the middle of the screen.
So any new ideas other than don't watch movies on this laptop?

The thrid command seemed to do the trick. 

Thanks for the help.  Goodbye Windows.
