Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

The fact that Brasero does not seem to clean up its temp files is another bug, but that's not what I'm reporting here. I'm simply reporting the fact that the error message seen, when there is no disk space left on the device containing /tmp, is rather confusing -- especially considering that the given CD-R I'm trying to burn onto is what first comes to mind when I hear "resource" in this context. An error message like, "No space is left to create temporary files in /tmp" would be better; an even better message could probably be drafted if we put a little more thought into it...

I'm running on Ubuntu 8.10 here, with the "0.9.1-0ubuntu3~intrepid1" brasero package.

Thanks!

According to what is stated in upstream bug, brasero handles /tmp use differently now, which basically means that this bug report can be resolved / closed.

Is this the right way to deal with this ? Shall we close this bug report according to what upstream did ?

Thanks.
