How to Install DVDStyler 3.2 in Ubuntu:

For Linux users, it offers only source tarball available to download at the link below:

Install DVDStyler via PPA:

The software has been removed from Ubuntu repositories for years, due to unknown reason. So far, the only way to get it, besides building from source, is using a third-party PPA.

The new release now requires wxWidgets library 3.1.x, while Ubuntu provides the 3.0.x. At the moment, you can install DVDStyler 3.1.2 from this PPA in Ubuntu 20.04 and higher.

To do so, open terminal and run following commands one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tomtomtom/dvdstyler

sudo apt update

sudo apt install dvdstyler

  1. Thanks Ji,

    but how compile on ubuntu?

    Best regards

    • Need to firstly build the development wxWidgets 3.1.x library as it required. However, the default build options does not include ‘wx/generic/colrdlgg.h’ which is required by DVDStyler. :-( And I don’t figure out how to workaround.

  2. It sure is bizarre how both DVD Styler and dvedeng have become so hard to find and install on most desktop Linux distros now. But your procedure did not work for me on Zorin (based on Ubuntu). I have run into unmet dependencies trying to install DVD authoring programs on Zorin, Linux Lite, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubunte Mate, Pop! OS, etc.

    Here is what Zorin told me today when I tried your procedure to get DVDStyler.

    $ sudo apt install dvdstyler
    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    Package dvdstyler is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package ‘dvdstyler’ has no installation candidate
