Isn't k3b qt based (kde)?

Will try the command line one since kde won't speak, perhaps I'll just
need to use a graphical app for this so better start searching.

Well, it is legal, all dvds belong to me, and others are just other
people's home movies...

I don't have or use windows, and I hope to get it working on linux,
since dvdbackup worked nicely, so hopefull there are burning tools just

I think qt accessibility will be nice though because a lot of apps are

Thanks for your help.
