CD Burning


I use gnometoaster to burn CDs. I've been looking around the net for a better one. Does anyone know of a good cd burner for linux? Does anyone know how to use gnometoaster w/out putting in the root password? Gtoaster works okay I just want to see if there is anything else better.

I mostly use Xcdroast for data cds, I've heard k3b is good too.
gtoaster is the best for burning audio cds from mp3s or whatever, and you should be able to set permissions to run it as a normal user.

you have to set setuid right to cdrecord, cdda2wav, mkisofs and some more executable in order to burn as a normal users. "4000" is the setuid octal number and "2000" is setgid number.
So to change rights to cdrecord, as example, you have to use "chmod 4755 /usr/bin/cdrecord (or whatever it is in your distribution). The setuid mode will give the program the right to run as the owner user of the executable (so, root, most of time). Setgid is the same but about owner's group.
It may seem freak,but it is very cool and very easy to use.

the software NEED to run at root I belive... setting setgid bit will allow it to run as "root group", not root himself... maybe some device or apps can be used by "root group" but only by USER root.

try setuid.
