How to play vcd in Ubuntu Lucid 10.04

It may not be the best solution, but after trying a few things the only thing that seemed to work is through mplayer.

First install mplayer by typing in the terminal:

sudo apt-get install mplayer

Once you have mplayer install play the vcd by typing one of these commands until one of those works:

mplayer vcd://2

mplayer vcd://1

mplayer vcd://

Hope this works.

I also tried but it didn't seemed to work for me (I post them just in case it helps somebody)

Trying to play the .dat file in the cd with totem or vlc.
Installing gxine didn't work either
