From the source directory, you should be able to perform 'make uninstall', if it's a proper makefile. For the apt version, you just need to find the relevant debian package to remove/upgrade.

Update:

I updated growisofs by uninstalling both versions i had, and doing an apt-get on the dvd tools package. I also updated my version of k3b.

However, I still get the "unable to get event; input output error."

It's something to do with growisofs, cause it happens when i try and burn via command. I tried as root, which didn't solve the problem.

I'm not sure what else to try. Doesn't seem like much resource is available. - I've only got DVD-R disks, and when this error comes up, it only rarely allows me to cancel before the dvd becomes unuseable.

Something else I feel need to mention is this:

When I "sudo k3b," I get "Unable to find growisofs executable," despite the fact k3b's searching for it in usr/bin (where it's located.)

If I start the program on my normal account, the error doesn't appear at all, and the program even detects the latest growisofs version.

Can anyone advise me on that issue? I seriously fail to understand how that one can happen...

Anyway, all help is, as allways, greatly appreciated,

Perhaps the sudo changes k3b's configuration in some way. I'm not sure. Have you considered (though this is drastic) upgrading to a 2.6 kernel to see if that resolves your issue?

Well, since burning DVDs is something absolutely CRITICAL to me (That's why I've made all this fuss), nothing is too drastic...

I'll upgrade the kernel, and see if it helps me... Will edit this post when done =)

EDIT: I upgraded the Kernel, and just sucessfully burnt the DVD. Thanks to all that help me get it working - I really appreciate it!

To anyone following the post:
I got it working by updating growisofs (with an apt get of dvd+rw-tools)
and updated my kernel to version 2.6.

I'm glad you got it working. Sorry it took a kernel upgrade, but at least it works now.
