Pburn, Pmirror, Pbackup, Pfind broken

These are all broken in the latest Wary 5.1.4. I'm annoyed about this. It is due to the upgrading of gtkdialog breaking scripts that use it. I reported about this to the gtkdialog development thread:

Zigbert has fixed Pburn (now 3.3.5), Pfilesearch (now 1.25), Pmirror (now 0.5) and Pbackup (now 3.1.9) and I have uploaded them to the 'common' repo.

But, I wonder what other scripts are out there that are now broken? My understanding was, from comments posted by thunor sometime ago, was that existing scripts would not be broken. if I had known that this was going to happen, I would have named it 'gtkdialog4'.

It is a bit too late to do that now, however, I am freezing the version of gtkdialog that is available in the 'common' repo. It is revision 224 from thunor's SVN site.

We will have to go through all the old PETs that we can find, any that are designed to use 'gtkdialog3', and thoroughly test them.

If you have Wary 5.1.4, you can install the fixed PETs:

I will be releasing an emergency bugfix version of Wary very soon.

Pburn, ... These are all broken
How odd???
Usually, I use Brasero or Xfburn, but yesterday both of those failed to delete a DVD-RW, so I used Pburn from 5.1.4. Only used it a couple of times before. Impressive - it did the biz, twice. Are rumours of Pburn's demise greatly exaggerated?

Yesterday I tried ripping a dvd with pburn 3.3.4 (wary514) and the system crashed at the point of burning the new dvd. I then tried pdvdrsab and again the system crashed at the point of burning the new dvd. Had one of my windows friends rip it for me. Will try with pburn 3.3.5 later today.

The command:
mplayer -dvd-device /home/FolderOFDVD/ dvd://1
______________Make A ISO Of A "video_ts" Folder From A DVD______________
Create an empty directory, for this example I'll call it dvd.
Move the VIDEO_TS directory and its contents to the dvd folder,
then simply run:

mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o mydvd.iso dvd

then mount the image, usually you need to be root for this

mount -o loop -t auto mydvd.iso /mnt

The mount point I have used here, /mnt must exist for this to work.

The ISO can be played using VLC, MPlayer.
