I was able to get DVD's playing properly in Kaffeine here just fine.
You'll probably only need to tweak one or two things:
First, you need to install libdvdcss, which we do not ship by default,
due to copyright issues in the USA, but it may differ depending on where
you are living:
Try Kaffeine again, does it work?
If not, you may need to update the DVD / CD device in Kaffeine. Open
Kaffeine and go to settings -> Xine Engine Parameters -> Media
Change the dvd.device option from /dev/dvd to /dev/acd0 or acd1 or
whatever your real DVD device is :)
