K3b DVD writing error message

The arch system has been updated to latest k3b and the latest dvd+rw-tools programs.

When I enter k3b I am faced with an error message:

       System configuration problem
             Unable to find dvd+rw-format executable
             Solution: install dvd+rw-tools


What action should be taken to eliminate the error message?

Re: K3b DVD writing error message

perhaps there is a default setting in k3b that has the path to the dvd+rw-tools binary? I would look in the configuration menus to see if the path may be something like /local/usr/bin or /usr/local/bin instead of /usr/bin.

Re: K3b DVD writing error message

I've heard some talk that the new version of dvd-tools doesn't work with k3b.  You can downgrade to the old dvd-tools, or wait for k3b to upgrade

Thanks for the info on two posts.  Dunno which will do the fix but have to try both.   big_smile
