OpenMandriva Lx version:
Desktop environment (KDE, LXQT…):
Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant):
Included supported package K3b states that transcode must be installed to rip DVD, but package manager does not provide for installation of transcode.
Relevant information (hardware involved, software version, logs or output…):
No listing found in Software Management: Install & Remove Software under “transcode” search
Using CLI “gurpmi” in terminal finds no package named transcode
As a general matter of course, I was attempting to stay within the options provided by the distro before looking at outside solutions.
What is the recommended course of action?
Your assistance is appreciated.
Please file a bug report. It would be worth checking to see if transcode is the only package not available. I suspect there may be more packages needed and not available. Or the packages go by different names in OpenMandriva. Either way this is a serious bug.
Also please do some internet searches. This problem is by no means limited to OpenMandriva it is common through out a number of Linux distros. Hence it’s likely an upstream problem.
There may be better tools for DVD ripping than k3b.
As you may begin to be able to tell I don’t know anything about how to rip DVD’s myself.
I will file a bug report.
I did several Internet searches, and the same problem does exist for users of different distros, however, their supposedly effective solutions (i.e., installing transcode with sudo: apt-get) are apparently not compatible with this distro.
I have also located several well-regarded alternative programs to K3b, and will explore their use, and they look to each have their advantages. I still wish to pursue the K3b solution because I happen to like K3b, and am familiar with it for many years.
@bero pointed out something interesting about this in the bug report. Check out the “upstream” home URL of transcode. Anyway we have a developer looking in to this.
