Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

I have a mounted data CD and I asked Brasero to copy it to an image file. I would have preferred an ISO image, but would have taken anything if it could only do it at all. Brasero went through the formalities then claimed that the module cdrdao was not available. I checked with synaptic and found that the module was present. Just to be sure, I flagged it for re-installation and ran dpkg using synaptic.

After the re-install completed, Brasero continued to refuse in the same way. This has not been a useful package for some time, and it should be cleaned up. Maybe there are just too many cooks in this pot.

Brasero version: 2.30.2-0ubuntu1\
UBUNTU version 10.04 plus upgrades to date.

I was trying to create a short-cut to mounting these disks repeatedly as this may damage them. I have used the disks directly to iinstall the relevant software, but would rather not if I could keep an on-line copy.

I had the same problem. Try installing brasero-cdrkit

The only cdrkit I could find was cdrkit-doc.

I widened my scope of updates to include the proposed objects, and got a big update. Strangely, before the update, but after the chanve, cdrdao showed as uninstalled where it showed as installed before this. If brasero was looking for a specific version, its error message leaves something to be desired. Will try this again and see if this is now cleared up.

Widening the scope of updates was no help. An apparently new cdrdao was loaded, but no soap. The matter is not so urgent that I am going to wade through all the stuff in the cdrkit documentation to try and do this by hand. However, whatever is going on should be solved. I think brasero is looking for cdrdao in the wrong place. On my machine it is in /usr/bin. If brasero is looking anywhere else, it explains why it doesn't find it.
