I've been trying to figure this problem out for a while but can't find anything helpful.
When making a DVD menu with any of the available apps I've tried (qdvdauthor, dvdstyler and Varsha) none of the buttons work. Digging into more it looks like spumux is the base problem.

I can't tell for sure if spumux is to blame but that's where the error is
Code:
$ spumux -v 2 spumux.xml < menu.mpg > menu_final.mpg
DVDAuthor::spumux, version 0.6.10.
Build options: gnugetopt magick iconv freetype
Send bugs to <dvdauthor-users@lists.sourceforge.net>

INFO: Locale=C
INFO: Converting filenames to ANSI_X3.4-1968
build: Unable to load file (highlighted.png).
WARN: Bad image,  skipping line -1
WARN:  Read 0, expected 4
INFO: 0 subtitles added, 1 subtitles skipped, stream: 32, offset: 0.18

Statistics:
- Processed 0 subtitles.
- The longest display line had -1 characters.
- The maximum number of displayed lines was 0.
- The normal display height of the font arial.ttf was 0.
- The bottom display height of the font arial.ttf was 0.
- The biggest subtitle box had 0 bytes.
I've tried the pre-generated images that qdvdauthor makes and built a few with Gimp and all have the same error.

What am I missing? Is it a simple compile option or bad program packages?

here's the spumux.xml file that I'm using also
Code:
<subpictures>
  <stream>
      <spu start="00:00:00.0" end="00:00:00.0"
               highlight="highlighted.png"
               select="selected.png"
     autooutline="infer"
     force="yes"
     autoorder="rows"/>
 </stream>
</subpictures>

I'm getting the same error as you. I've posted a similar message in the HowTo in the Documentation forum

:)

EDIT: Having just typed all that, I've tried running this as root, and it works OK - so perhaps a permissions error somewhere else.....

At least I'm not the only one with this problem, still haven't figured anything out with this
Tried many different things and get the same error... :roll:

I found the source of my problems. I appear to have two different versions of spumux on my machine. One in /usr/local/bin/spumux and one in /usr/bin/spumux. My non-root user was calling /usr/local/bin/spumux which was causing the error. My root user was calling the /usr/bin/spumux and was working OK. If I call the /usr/bin version as my non-root user it works fine.

I don't know where the broken version came from, and am not sure whether I can simply delete it or not.

Ah, that's is odd...it does work when using the /usr/bin/spumux
Thanks for that!

Now to figure out why qdvdauthor core dumps when it mplex's the menu, but that's a new thread :D
