**************

I had just finished burning one (+R DL) DVD ISO, and was trying to burn a different (+R DL) ISO when I got this error. Both disks were from the same mfr and package.

affects: k3b (Ubuntu) → cdrkit (Ubuntu)

Same problem,

K3b in Karmic says it can not find the cdrecord file. This causes mkisofs to crash making K3b worthless without severe command line programing. cdrecord, mkisofs, libcap1, cdrdao, and growisofs need to be installed into the Karmic repositories as soon as possible.

In another bug report somone from Ubuntu quite forcfully told a newbe that it was his proplem because he was using wodim

His explanation was this.

You are not using cdrecord but wodim. You thus cannot expect that
writing to DVDs works at all.

If there is a known problem lets get this fixed and have it come out as a update as soon as possible.

It is a confirmed bug. Everyone expects to be able to burn a disk out of the box, Kubuntu is not doing this now.
