Although it was faffy, I have done it this way in the past:

I used picasa (from google - http://picasa.google.com/) to create a
nice video slideshow. Then I used Avidemux (from repositories) to add
an audio track (which I got from Jamendo -
http://www.jamendo.com/en/). I then used ffmpeg (from repositories) to
convert it to a DVD Standard mpeg2 file, and finally DVDStyler
(http://dvdstyler.sourceforge.net/) to create & burn the DVD image.

If you are wanting to go down this route, and believe me it is faffy,
and there may well be easier ways, let me know and I can go into more
detail about the process!
