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
