How to rip a DVD to H264/XviD using OGMRip (Linux)

In the past months I received quite a few emails asking me to post some
DVD to H264 (or DivX/XviD) guide for Linux. The problem however existed
in the fact that there was not a single program for Linux that I was
happy with, enough to write for it and much more, suggest it to our
users. A few weeks ago, as I was searching the internet for interesting
video applications, I found OGMRip. Installed it, ripped a few
DVDs, voila! OGMRip has a nice, clean GUI that remains easy while
containing most important options, is actively developed and works like
a charm. And don’t be fooled by the name, it supports many formats and
codecs, including OGM, AVI, MP4, MKV, MOV containers and DivX, XviD,
H264 and Ogg codecs.

So lets have a look at the step-by-step guide of ripping a DVD to any
of the formats supported.
