not enough space in tmp folder burning blueray 25gb

Registered Member

I need of a blueray burner so I've decided to use your software because it is the only program I believe It'is one of the most under Linux (Ubuntu) which burn CDs and DVDs without problem.
Unfortunately there is a problem with tmp dir that creates some problems burning blueray.
I'll explain you:
To burn a blueray (for example only data) we need about 25Gb of hdd space and k3b needs to write the cache in a tmp dir (through genisoimage). Unfortunately my partition of HDD where is installed linux (and, I believe the most of, partitions of people) has not enough free space, so I specified a different folder in another HDD through the preferences section of K3b, but It doesen't work: K3b said "not enough space on temp dir" (I've 10 Gb free space on default /tmp). So I tried to change temp, tmp, tmpdir enviroment variable without success. I think it is a problem related to genisoimage which tries to write iso on tmp default dir also if I changed temp folder in preferences menu of k3b.

Any suggestions ?
It this bug ?

My k3b version is: 2.0.3 running on Ubuntu 16.04.5 64bit; kernel 4.4.0-133

thank you
