No dialogue / status bar for progress of Audio disc image creation

Bug #31574 reported by Aaron Whitehouse on 2006-02-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
cdrdao (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When I put a CD into the computer, right-click the icon on the desktop and click "copy disc", it writes a disc image, asks me to swap the source disc for a blank disc and then writes the disc.

This works fine but, at the disc image creation stage (writing the disc image to my tmp directory), there is no change in the dialogue and the progress bar does not move. This is quite confusing as the only way to know that anything is happening is by watching the flashing drive and watching the size of the temporary iso image increase in size.

It would be excellent if the progress bar could move to indicate how long the writing of the image will take and that it is working.

Thanks for your bug. What version of Ubuntu do you use? The creating image dialog has a progress bar and an estimation of the time required to create it on my dapper installation

Breezy Badger 5.10. The version of the package is:
nautilis-cd-burner 2.12.1-0ubuntu1

Could you attach a screenshot of the dialog? As Sébastien said, it should have a time estimate.

This is a screenshot of the dialogue when creating a disc image.

It stays as in the above screenshot until it asks for a disc and then changes to the progress of writing the disc.

Could you use gconf-editor to set /apps/nautilus-cd-burner/debug to true, then run from a command line:
- gnome-session-remove nautilus
- nautilus

then duplicate the CD from nautilus, wait for the copy to start and copy the command line log to a comment?

Thanks for the detailed instructions :). When copying an audio CD (the nearest CD I had on hand) the output is as follows:

When I first put in the CD there is a whole lot of:

When I right-click the "Audio Disc" and click Copy, I get:

It sits at this screen until the disc image is created (with no status indicated in the dialogue). When the image is complete, it echoes (after writing the image and before burning it):

With a data CD it has given me a progress bar with the two CDs that I just tried (the output is:

@Zyanya:~$ nautilus

[The 22912 increments])

I don't remember if the first one that I tried was audio or data, but for now I'll change the bug title to just be audio CDs.

nautilus-cd-burner update the bar according to the "%" which is usually written by cdrdao when it just sits without doing anything for you. Reassigning to bug to cdrdao

This still occurs on a fully updated Dapper Flight 6 install as at 9 April 2006.

There has been nearly two months of inaction on this - would you like me to forward the issue upstream for you?

If you know cdrdao upstream and want to forward that you are welcome

Filed in Sourceforge bug tracker:

It doesn't look as though that tracker is very active but I don't know where would be a better place to forward this.

Can you give us an update if this still happens on newer Ubuntu versions? Thank you!
