Gnomebaker is not developed anymore since 2008. You shouldn't use it at all. I would recommend to use a different program for CD/DVD burning, like Brasero, Xfburn or K3B. These programs can easily be installed using the Software Center and, IIRC, Brasero should already be installed by default.

for just about any application, a distro like Ubuntu will have a solution available with the package manager. When starting out with Linux, I recommend following a simple rule---"If possible, always install new SW with the Package manager."
