makedvd problems with tovid in Hardy

Seems makedvd is also missing from the Ubuntu package. I still recommend downloading the full deb from



makedvd is NOT missing in the Ubuntu package. It's simply diverted to /usr/share/tovid so that it doesn't pollute the namespace.

You can launch it this way:

/usr/share/tovid/makedvd [arguments]

Thanks for the information! I don't think this is the best solution for this package as it differs from the tools when installed from tovid's website and forces the user to reference one component of the suite directly whilst using the other tools indirectly (although I'm not sure about makexml...I don't use it).
