    Take a look at the upper right hand corner of your screen. Problem solved.

    In any case, the only Linux DPG converter I know of is called "DPGConv" and tends to produce out-of-sync movies sometimes. You'll have to experiment with it.

    You'll find that support for Linux is rather low in the world of DS homebrew. Obviously the DS apps themselves will work the same no matter which OS you use to put them on your card, but any supporting PC-side applications are usually Windows-only.

    Have you tried using windows programs in WINE to do the job?

    If you can't get anything to work, you could try http://media-convert.com/, it's an online media converter (duh [​IMG] ) that supports .dpg files.
    it is a little slow depending on your upload speed, but it should work. there aren't any virus' or anything, just tricky adds [​IMG]

    EDIT: it's a little old, but try this: http://forum.gbadev.org/viewtopic.php?t=7897
