2008-12-31 06:44:37 PM Hmmmm well I finally managed to screw my Linux 
(Ubuntu 8.04) up Here is what happened so maybe someone can fix me... I 
got the DVD of the Orig Matrix by WarnerBros for a Christmas present but 
it would not play like the only other DVD I have (M.M.s Fahrenheit 911) 
I just not into movies (last movie I went to see was Jurassic Park) but 
always wanted to see Matrix. I tried every one of the 5 or 6 players 
that was in the Ubuntu install apps and I then decided to remove all of 
them and reinstall just mplayer/Totem and the VLC that I use for 
streaming audio. Both of them work fine but still after reinstallation 
refuse to play this dvd. I don't want to learn how to make a movie or 
copy it ... I just want to watch this brand new was in sealed pack disk.
So now I still can watch You tube and news vids and listen to KPIG & few 
other radio streams but the main volume control. in the apps menu is now 
inoperative it says: Error, 'failed to execute child process 
"gnome-volume-control" (no such file of directory). Also now the sound 
is missing completely from Chat client 'Pidgin' How can I fix this please?
