Hi Sigmund,
launching pburn-3.7.17 from console reports
Quote:
# pburn
/usr/local/pburn/func_gui_options: line 7: /root/.pburn/pburnhlp-auto: No such file or directory


have then created an empty file /root/.pburn/pburnhlp-auto --> pburn seems running OK

is this correct?
Cheers, Charlie

Hi Charlie6,

I got the exact same problem with pburn 3.7.17 and when trying to boot via cli to see why it wouldn't start I got the same reply. So I made a "dummy file" by that name under "/root/.pburn/" - works fine now!

You just won't get any help documentation under "Help" on the menubar if I remember correctly until after you've started pburn. See, once you're finally able to do so that dummy file is replaced with a real help file. Smile

At least this is how it worked on my Puppy systems. Anyone else's mileage may vary.

Cheers/Amicalement,

Hello guys
Thank you for reporting
Would you please test 3.7.18
It should hopefully fix it

I've been burning Audio CD's and I noticed the opening
message of pburn says that a huge amount of temporary
free space is necessary. ( I believe 10 GB)

...But you should mention that for burning Puppy ISO's and Audio CD's ,
a 1 gigabyte temporary free space would be sufficent.


I like the feature in pburn where the minutes of audio are added up Laughing

Out of interest, has anyone ever requested a feature to burn an encrypted data disk?
I started looking into this for making my own copies of things that I've produced at work, but then I decided I'd actually rather not encrypt them Smile

There has been some discussion here about some fundamental changes of burning. The plan is to ship pBurn 4 with isolevel 4, but my burner died the other day, so I have to put that on hold...

I think if you encrypt the data as a file or possibly an iso first, then Pburn will just see the encrypted file as a bunch of ones and zeros and go ahead and burn it.

As you seem to realize, without the encryption key or password, an encrypted disk is a coaster. Encryption is just access control. Better to simply keep an unencrypted disk in a safe.

Yeah, it looks like the easiest way is to get aespipe and pipe the output of mkisofs through it.
I don't need a safe - I decided if the data I'll be burning somehow got into the wrong hands it wouldn't really matter...

Ted Dog and JamesBond has done some job to simplify burning and improve compatibility with winXP/7/8.
Read more here.

This will lead to some major changes to pburn and we are targeting pBurn 4 in some future.

First I have made a suggestion to simplify the filsystem tab
The well known



could look like this

But surely any modern "others" wouldn't need 8.3 naming?

Why not do what programs like VLC are doing? Provide a set of 'basic' (simplified) options by default... and if someone wants to mess with the settings in more depth, they can switch the options to an 'advanced' selection.

I know I'd prefer the full filesystem choice, over the 'three choice' version (but that's just me).

Well, normally I'm in favour of providing all the options, but

Really? What combination of options would you use apart from those three?

Would it make sense to change "Others" to something like "really old systems"?
