Tip for Bluray burner

Post by Fontenele » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:42 pm

Good evening,

I'm using Linux Mint 19 Beta and i kindly ask what options do i have to burn Blurays? I don't think Brasero works, didn't try K3B and Xfburn it's ok. Am i right? There are any other options?

Thanks

Fontenele

Hi Fontenele,

I did not see this post before.

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

There are many posts on this topic in this forum, but because of the forum's limited searching options you may have to use something like the command below for Google search to find them.

Code: Select all

I highly recommend installing "K3b" and "udftools" from the "Synaptic Package Manager SPM" with all of their recommended and suggested packages and "ubuntu-restricted-extras" and "regionset", restart your computer afterward.

Today this related article showed up in my email:

*** You may not need to install the PPA and related packages below for burning or playing Blu-Ray discs, only install this if you cannot burn or play Blu-Ray discs. ***

PPA - CDRTools : Brandon Snider - read top of page
https://launchpad.net/~brandonsnider/+a ... u/cdrtools

To install this using the PPA method, open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one: Click "Select All" above command, right click the highlighted command, select Copy or Ctrl+Insert, click in the console terminal window, and right click paste or Shift+Insert, repeat for each command.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:brandonsnider/cdrtools

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install k3b cdda2wav cdrecord mkisofs smake

Hope this helps ...
