Photos to DVD


Hi I,ve search unsuccessfully for a program which lets you create an album using your photos insert transition (effects between photos them burn these to DVD.

Something like this windows based program.

Can anyone advise if there is something similar for Linux?

Thanks

I would think there would be any number of image management utilities with a slideshow feature. I seldom do such things and just use OpenOffice or Powerpoint.

Cant even find something to run on Wine. I,m surprised as I would have thought an easily user friendly program for this would have been very popular.

Thanks anyway

As you are using Ubuntu you can install it from the repository:

Ubuntu Linux (Dapper Drake)

* You can find dvd-slideshow in the multiverse repository.
* Install it with "apt-get install dvd-slideshow"
* It is easiest to use System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager and search for each dependent package that dvd-slideshow uses to install them properly
NOTE:: there is a bug with the new ffmpeg versions. A quick fix is described in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=590317.

noel@test-desktop:~$ apt-get install dvd-slideshow
E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13 Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?
noel@test-desktop:~$

Appreciate to know how to over come this?

I believe you have to 'sudo' to get more privileges. So run:

Code:
sudo apt-get install dvd-slideshow

My method may be silly but it is what I use

open terminal
type "d" then press tab
search in this list

you can type dvd then press tab that would filter the results

I hope it works


synaptic dvd-slidshow description:

Quote:
dvd-slideshow
This is the main script. It generates a DVD-compatible MPEG2 video file
with audio from a text file input listing of pictures and effects.

dvd-menu
Creates a simple DVD menu with buttons that link to MPEG2 files generated
with dvd-slideshow or ones that you have created yourself.

gallery2slideshow
Instead of a GUI to create slideshows, I already have almost everything
set up from my web page that uses the Gallery program. I figured it
wouldn't be that hard to just get a listing of all the images in a given
album (sub-albums not supported!) and to generate an appropriate input
file to dvd-slideshow.

jigl2slideshow
Does the same thing as gallery2slideshow, but works on a jigl gallery
So use the bold titles as commands and they should work.

ManSlide, SMILE or ManDVD (not 2ManDVD) are the best and easiest apps you can find to do it.

Have installed manslide but again no icon to execute. I,m assuming this also requires a command in the terminal but I dony know what commands are used to execute a program

dvdslideshow requires a .conf type file to tell it which images and what to do with them. But it's fairly simple to figure out. I've only used it once to do a video DVD for my cousins wedding. Tons of examples of usage if you google a little bit. The man page should also help. Although it is command line so probably not for most. And I think it defaults to trying to write / burn the dvd image, where all I wanted was the .mpeg version to include in a DVD of other stuff.
