You need the dvd+rw-tools package. Make sure it's installed and that
it's the latest version available. The commandline tool is called
"growisofs". There's a page about DVD+RW recording on Linux at . Th latest version of k3b
should be able to handle burning DVD+ discs without a problem, but when
I've burned DVD+ discs, I've always used growisofs from the command
line. HTH,
