Fix the Brasero copy/burn error

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

As someone sans a working DVD drive let alone something to burn or copy I have been largely unaware of a bug plaguing Brasero users during the last few releases: it fails to copy audio and data CD’s and, for some, burning is also borked.

Thankfully a fix is available – albeit via a 3rd party PPA. To install the patched Brasero (chances are this ‘bug’ will remain in Maverick) open a terminal via the applications > accessories menu and enter the following two lines carefully: –

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:renbag/ppa
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
