Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

It's working perfectly for me with Arch; not working in my wife's laptop with Ubuntu.

Setting input-charset to 'UTF-8' from locale.
Unknown file type (unallocated) /var/tmp/recorder/.. - ignoring and continuing.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Try to change the temp to another dir (ex: ~/.recorder) and post what happens.

Have problems anyone burning data cd's? It seems to fail to get output (utf8-related-issues), but cd burns correctly.

./recorder:365: GtkWarning: gtk_text_buffer_emit_insert: assertion `g_utf8_validate (text, len, NULL)' failed
  self.buffer.insert_at_cursor(self.get_output())

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

It's still a no go, on the Ubuntu machine.

On the other hand, with Arch it's been kept busy! Great app, congratulations!

I think I have all dependencies lined up in Ubuntu, but it threw out the exact same error output as before, so I suppose it's not related to the temporary folder.

double_edit: BTW, PyBurn DOESN'T work on her machine (anymore LOL), so I guess I am missing some dependency or something. It used to work before, though. Dependencies, at least according to AUR are pygtk (check), cdrkit (also check), and dvd+rw-tools (check).

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

I'm glad to say that after many tries and bloody battles, verify integrity of burned data with checksum md5... works!

First feature of 1.3, and It will include translation for czech, russian and arabic smile.

Great news indeed! I've been waiting for verify integrity feature all these time. big_smile

So how do you manages to get verify integrity to work, if you don't mind me asking that is (I'm curious). smile

Here is the method that I use (IMHO, the most simpler and easier to implement, avoiding possible issues how mount disc, permissions, etc):

1. When the iso image is created to burn, I generate the md5sum and It is saved in a file.
2. When the burn process finish,  there are two buttons, one to close and one to verify md5. If close button was pressed, md5-file is deleted with all the temporary files.
3. When user press button to verify, I rip the disc with "dd" and check the md5sum of the result image.

I test it with data cd many times, so I suppose that dvd data will work, too. But, audio cd... this is another story.

I did not have CD on drive.
This open my drive, but it would tell me a warning message about the CD presence.

1º - Do you think in hide the messages? Can be under a link like others burners, a details link on a pop up (displaying the record status).

2º - This image, i want to burn 5 copies of it. Can be add something where i can select how many copies i want of this?
I think that it will be very nice on a pop up, where i can select too the recorder drive, recorder speed, and something else...

That's my opinions for today.

Thanks! o/

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

any one tried burning a data DVD? i did today and all was well, till the end of the write it showed closing disc and seemed to hang in there. i left it be for about 20mins at that but still nothing and also the DVDdrive was quiet so i finally chose close, and ended up with a coaster.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

I'm not sure of understand the problem with the CD presence... First, if you wants to burn a cd, the most obvious is insert a cd. But, if you forget this thing, cdrecord tells you that is no CD on drive and open it to insert one. It's the default behaviour of cdrecord.
Personally, i hate when a program start to show pop-ups for everything, how i say before, recorder shows the output of mkisofs/cdrecord/growisofs without change it. The objective is not to get the output and create a nice popup with messages like "Creating image... (X%), Burning CD... (Y%)".

About the option to say the number of copies to burn, I'm sorry but It changes one of the "principles" of my program: "No useless options, try to do it simple". Off course, This is not related with the difficulty to implement the option (not much), but now is the number of copies, tomorrow is the speed of the burn, after is the option to select if eject after finish, etc... All of this are useless and offers nothing important (IMHO). If you want 3 copies, click 3 times burn. KISS.

The problem with burning data DVD, now I don't have any dvd to burn but early I will buy one to test it.
   
I hope I have answered your doubts and questions, it might seem a little hard with the "principles", but I believe that we must follow the principles in order not to lose the way.

Now, the features of Recorder 1.3 (finished, waiting for the best moment to release it) are:
- Option to save MD5sum and check it.
- Size has two decimals and improved the method to calculate the total.
- Name shows the full path of the file, to avoid problems like "What file am I exactly burning?".
- Added three new translations: russian, french, arabic

That's all smile. Thanks for use the program.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Oh... sorry. If the objective is to be KISS, it's really wonderful. smile

And i also think that a burned data check will be very useful.

Keep going! o/

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

Released 1.3.

I tested md5sum with DVD and CD and It works.
One warning, calculate md5 checksum of 700MB-4,7GB takes a long time.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

News from the battlefront:
- Support for DVD Video projects
- New method to burn ISO images, more "standard". Just add the image to the list and click burn.
- Added message when dd starts. By default, dd only shows info when finished.
- Using split instead rpartition. Downgrade pygtk dependencies to 2.4
- Other code changes: os.mkdir -> os.makedirs, etcetera...

I suppose it works as it should, because nobody has complained yet.

Re: Recorder (1.4) - A simple GTK+ disc burner

I'm glad that you love it.

For the next version I will remove the rest of hardlinks (all will depend of DESTDIR/PREFIX).

The truth is that recorder is now what is suppose to be and It works good... so, I don't plan any more improvement. The updates will be less frequently.

Off course, this doesn't mean to abandon the project tongue.
