Default Need GUI DVD writing tool

Need GUI DVD writing tool

Is there a GUI DVD writing tool available for OpenBSD ?

Searched for xfburn and braserro but found none.

I used to use XCDROAST. It was many years ago, but worked great. Not sure if it now works with DVDs.

All though I do not understand why a GUI would be needed, a search shows that apparently it can be used for DVD as well:
http://www.xcdroast.org/manual/dvd.html
The FAQ might be of interest as well :

Apart from the already mentioned misc/xcdroast (cdrtools frontend) there is also sysutils/tkdvd which acts as a frontend to dvd-rw-tools and cdrecord.

sysutils/tkdvd
misc/xcdroast

The man page for systuils/dvd+rw-tools has examples that can be copied and pasted into a terminal:
https://linux.die.net/man/1/growisofs

I follow the FAQ13 to create my iso's but use mkisofs in lieu of mkhybrid.

https://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq13.html#burnCD

Then
Code:
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/rcd0c=image.iso
Note that you may need to change the device if you have more than one burner or use a usb burner.

I am getting this. What should I do?

Code:
 pkg_add xcdroast                                                                                   
quirks-2.414 signed on 2018-03-28T14:24:37Z
xcdroast-0.98a16p7:cdrtools-3.00p1: ok
xcdroast-0.98a16p7: ok
--- +xcdroast-0.98a16p7 -------------------
Notes on Preparing X-CD-Roast for Operation
-------------------------------------------
Due to cdrecord's -scanbus option being wholly unusable under
OpenBSD, you will need to manually specify the device by using the
-f option of xcdroast.

Find your CD device(s), e.g.:
        dmesg |egrep "cd0|cd1"
        cd0 at scsibus0 targ 0 lun 0: <HITACHI, DVD-ROM GD-5000, 0213>
        cd1 at scsibus1 targ 0 lun 0: <PLEXTOR, CD-R PX-W8432T, 1.09>

Specify your devices (:bus,targ,lun is optional):
        # xcdroast -f "/dev/rcd0c;/dev/rcd1c"

To begin generating a configuration file, simply run xcdroast as root
with the correct options.  If you wish to enable CD burning for
non-root users, click the "Activate Non-Root-Mode" button.  You will be
presented with the list of commands that are to be executed and
have the opportunity to cancel.

It installed. You need to run it first as root to create a configuration file, and it will give you an option to run as a non-root user if you choose. After that, then just run it. But you need to run it with "-f" as shown so it can find the device. Run dmesg to find your device. Mine is cd0.

Code:
# xcdroast -n -f /dev/rcd0c
Then I set an image path and saved the configuration.
Code:
$ xcdroast -n
You'll need to save the configuration as the regular user, then do what you want.

Sorry for not being patient. After having trouble with xcdroast I installed K3b but the graphics are all messed up.

Please see attachment.

The documentation for xcdroast, posted above, indicates that you had to manually specify the cd/dvd burner due to a problem with the cdrecod back-end. K3B uses the same backends: cdrecord/dvd+rw-tools. This may be the problem in second screen shot. Did you manually specify the device? If you just one SATA burner, it will be /dev/rcd0c.

I was not able to select anything in k3b coz the gui is messed up.

I have found a workaround.

Code:
mkhybrid -R -o sys.iso /path_to_file
Code:
cdrecord -v -dao speed=4 dev=/dev/cd0c /path_to_file.iso
I just finished burning a DVD and all is fine.

Thanks for the reply.

The history of cdrecord is complex. Upstream is a Rabid Solaris user and felt the file locations used by LInux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and NetBSD where incorrect. He was mostly ignored by the communities and Debian went as far as to fork his project as cdkit. Early cdrecord versions only did CD's - not DVD's. A second project, dvd+rw-tools, used the cdrecord toolchain and added DVD capability.

The OpenBSD project also wrote a small, compact cd utility called cdio. Cdio comes with the base install - no need to add additional software. The manual page cdio(1), shows howto use cdio to burn cd's. Similiar information is in the OpenBSD FAQ under multimedia.

To generate funding, upstream offered a cdrecord-pro with DVD capability. If was only available for purchase but it know appears that DVD capability has been added to the opensource code base. Reference cdrecord(1m). This may be why dvd+tw-tools has not been updated in a while.

I believe cdrecord/cdio for CDs and DVD+rw-tools for DVDs are the most popular utilities.
