When selecting the speed upon the DVD is going to be record it strangely shows 1x 3x 5x... instead of the correct 1x 2x 4x 6x 8x.
Other than that, no mater the speed I select it always tries to write a max speed which can lead to record errors :(

Additional info:
* package version(s)
$ pacman -Q brasero
brasero 0.7.1-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Run brasero, select burn image and try to set a record speed. It should be ignored.
This task depends upon

Thought I guess I cannot fix it as it's a mainstream problem somewhere,
but please tell which backend are you using? (Did you enable libburn backend in gconf?)

I didn't ever changed the brasero's backend. So... I think I'm using the default one.
I've tried to look at gconf for any hint on this but I couldn't even found any "backend" key:(

Even so, there's no upstream bug on this so, this could be a PEBKAC or dist bug... I'll try test this on FC8 later today.

during install or upgrade process pacman displays this text:
>> To enable libburn backend you need to activate it in GConf:
>> /apps/brasero/config/libburn_burn
>> /apps/brasero/config/libburn_iso

Yes I've read that, but no such thing appear in gconf-editor only "engine_group" as something similar.

weird, they do exist here :-/
anyway I'm unable to reproduce your bug
Did you try if gnomebaker or k3b or other software shows correct speeds for you?
Comment by João Rodrigues (gothicknight) - Thursday, 14 February 2008, 14:05 GMT
Yes, k3b shows and records without any problem.
Comment by Roman Kyrylych (Romashka) - Thursday, 28 February 2008, 12:38 GMT
please try brasero-0.7.1-2

This isn't forgotten, it's just I've been *really* busy lately.

One thing I managed to try was the image criation with a PC without CD/DVD burner, that failed with message something like "There's no plugin for this". I've done the same in my laptop and worked smooth.

Also, I've been having problems trying to create a music CD, after selecting all songs and check that those fit on the CD, brasero starts burning and calculates that in the end, the size will be bigger than it predicted.

no libburn gconf option with brasero-0.7.1-2
Comment by Martin Langsholt (mlan) - Friday, 25 April 2008, 08:09 GMT
The same problem here, with Brasero 0.7.1-2. Brasero doesn't honor write speed, uses max speed no matter what speed I select.
