Easy dvd-video authoring on Ubuntu Linux with Dvdman

Filed under

I have made a simple standard-dvd-video with a custom basic menu, using only free software on Ubuntu (Feisty) for pc i386.

Ubuntu is a free operating system that, differently from Windows and MacOS has no licensing costs. Also most of the professional software you can use on a Linux operating system is free (released under Gnu-Gpl or another opernsource license).

Let’s make a comparison:
€ Windows XP license
€ , amateur dvd-authoring-software
€ , amateur video-editing-software
€ Nero, dvd-burning-software
€129 one MacOS X license
€79 iLife (iDvd, amateur dvd-authoring-software + iMovie, amateur video-editing-software + iPhoto, amateur photo managing software with powerful slideshow authoring)
€0 operating-system-integrated dvd-burning-software
€0 infinite licenze Ubuntu Linux
€0 Mandvd, amateur dvd-authoring-software
€0 operating-system-integrated dvd-burning-software with powerful slideshow authoring

I think that investing time on free-opensource-software (foss) is both an ethic and economic choice.

KDE Plasma 5.5

  • KDE Plasma 5.5 Windows 8 Metro-Inspired Theme Looks Interesting
    KDE developer Kai Uwe has just published a lengthy article where he talks about developing a Windows 8-inspired theme for the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.5 desktop environment.
  • KDE Developer Working On Windows 8 Inspired Look
    Kai Uwe has been working on some experimental hacks to resemble Windows 8, although Microsoft's default interface has changed with Windows 10. He's calling this work "U-Bahn" (the German equivalent of a Metro subsystem system) in reference to Microsoft at the time calling it Metro. This was just some brief hacking and he's not planning to see this U-Bahn project through to the end.
  • Pursuing Awesomeness
    While applets can be installed through “Get Hot New Stuff” and distribution repositories, there’s also the classic .plasmoid file. A feature suggested by one of my colleagues – fresh KDE Plasma user – was to drag .plasmoid files onto the desktop or panel and have them installed. After Marco Martin implemented the neccessary KPackage plumbing this is now possible.
