  2. Thank you,
    For the great instructions, it works like a charm.
    warm greetings from the heart,

  3. I have tried the install at least 10 times on Ubuntu 2109 and it does not work with the result.
    Package ‘dvdstyler’ has no installation candidate
    could and would you maybe help me?

    • The unofficial PPA only provides 64-bit packages for modern computers and laptops. Try downloading the ‘.deb’ packages from the PPA web page:

      Scroll down and click expand the source for your Ubuntu editon (Impish for Ubuntu 21.10, Hirsute for Ubuntu 21.04, and Focal for ubuntu 20.04). Then download the following 2 packages:



      Finally double click to install them one by one (dvdstyler-data go first and then dvdstyler).

  4. Worked well for me. Thanks!

  5. Thank you so much for the straight-forward instructions. I was losing faith that I’d find this beloved program again. I installed it successfully on my Linux Lite 5.8 OS. Your article has made me a happy dude! :-)
