Broken libdvdcss support, patch included

Bug #134828 reported by Conn O Griofa on 2007-08-26

brasero (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

By default, brasero tries to access /usr/lib/ to enable reading of encrypted DVDs, but most users' systems will not have this file (or symlink) present even when the libdvdcss2 package is installed. For example, the contents of libdvdcss2 from the medibuntu repository:

root@inspiron:~/work# dpkg -L libdvdcss2 | grep /usr/lib

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install libdvdcss2 package (requires medibuntu repositories or manual download from site)
2. Insert an encrypted DVD, open brasero and choose "Disc copy"

Expected results:
1. Disc begins copying

Actual results:
1. Error message displays: "encrypted DVD: please install libdvdcss version 1.2.x"

Other applications (e.g. totem. vlc, mplayer) seem content to access, so I believe it's better to patch brasero rather than repackaging libdvdcss2 with another symlink - for the sake of consistency. I'm attaching the proposed patch against brasero 0.6.0 that fixes the issue on my system. I also checked version 0.6.1 and it will require this patch too.
