Been a while since I've done it, but mencoder (the encoding utility part of mplayer) from the command line works very well. Check sites like these

http://wiki.clug.org.za/wiki/Making_DVD ... nder_Linux

(You'll have to copy and paste that first link--can't get it to work normally.)

http://web.njit.edu/all_topics/Prog_Lan ... oding.html

or google for info. The commands can be long but you might find you can just copy and paste them with minor edits. There's also a list of packages for dvd creation here:

http://womble.decadent.org.uk/talks/dvd ... paper.html

Scroll down to the bottom of the page for the list.

I use DeVeDe, although it doesn't give you menus.

I use DeVeDe, too, though it's not in the blag repos. Maybe this could be put in the repo for blag 80k?

I can't install dvdstyler. It says it depends on xine, which it won't let me install. I'm using blag 70k. There's some foul up, it seems with xine, xine-libs, and xine-lib-moles:

Code:
xine-lib-moles:
 Depends: xine-lib (= 1.1.7)


my xine-lib is version 1.1.10-1.fc7

I added devede to the repo. Should be apt/yumable within 24 hours. Let me know if all the deps aren't there.

In general, http://www.osalt.com/ seems a good resource for Open Source alternatives to Windoze applications.

You can move the window around by holding down Alt and clicking on it if it is too big for your screen.

Just to clarify, i did mean hold down alt and drag anywhere on the window. This will allow you to move the whole window around.

i tried to move the whole window but cant seem to move it above the top menu panel to access the the quit and forward buttons on the program i also have this problem with QDVDAuthor. I click the resize button in the top right of the screen but it doesn't resize the window.
