I've been using Linux mint for a while and version 4.0 is my favourite by far, so thank you to everyone!
the only piece of software I really miss is dvdstyler. I haven't been able to install it myself as it requires lots of newer dependencies. I have installed an older version of the software but it keeps crashing or throwing up random errors.
It's a very easy piece of software to use, it helps to create menus and an iso file ready for burning to dvd. on other distros i've used avidemux to convert my films to mpg format and then used dvdstyler to create the video dvd.
The devede package has never worked properly for me. It is rather complicated and requires a very long time to create a dvd and a huge amount of hard disk space also i've found i have to fiddle with it to make sure the video fits onto a standard dvd and to make sure it is deinterlaced etc. I still haven't made a decent dvd despite fiddling with this program for ages.
Any other alternatives i could use with Linux mint?
I'd love it if dvd styler was in the software portal, many thanks again for this great distro!
