[xubuntu-users] K3B can't find various libraries

I should add that I used xfburn, too, and it seems to work fine, but
it has some deficiencies compared to k3b.

Two I recall off the top of my head:

1) It shows the burn speed as some kind of factor that does not appear
to be logically related to the speed I selected.  I'm guessing it's
some kind of factor to multiply against the burn speed, but I'd rather
see that done for me and shown as an actual speed.

2) Worse, I can't save the project I created.  I've failed to do this
with k3b before and regretted it, but with xfburn there isn't the
option.  If I want to recreate the CD (for future reburns or for
others to enjoy), I can't do that.  Seriously not cool.

As a last ditch tool when nothing else works, xfburn is fine, but
lacking #2 above, its just that.

Them's my $0.02 - YMMV.
