A DivX burning application
I was just wondering if anyone knows of an application for Gnome (not KDE) that can burn DivX files to DVD? I cannot seem to find one. Often I get these great documentaries (not copyrighted to my knowledge) that I'd love to have on DVD to show friends.
A HUGE thanks in advance.

You could try first converting them to a DVD type mpg (or VOB) file. The Avidemux program can do this, and if you don't mind terminal commands, there is ffmpeg. There is also the terminal program Mencoder, which is part of Mplayer.
To make DVDs, I use Q-DVDauthor. You can make customized menus with it, but there is a learning curve.
Here is an example of the command used to make a DVD type file with ffmpeg:
ffmpeg -i myfile.avi -target ntsc-dvd /tmp/dvd.mpg
