What to use to burn CDs/DVDs in Ubuntu?


I have used Mandrake 10.1 until I now and I have used KDE and K3b.
Now in Ubuntu running Gnome, I am a little lost. I haven't much used
the command line tools like cdrecord.
Is there something similar to K3B I can install in Ubuntu that will do the job?

Thanks,

Ekkume

I've never seen something as sleek as K3B for KDE, but there is xcdroast and gnome-toaster to use in gnome.

You can install K3b anyway.. it'll of course install the necessary KDE-packages as well.

I don't even have a CD/DVD-recorder on the PC where I have Ubuntu, but on this PC I use Gnome and K3b (Mandrake10.1).

I've been using gnomebaker and like it a lot. Give it a try.

It is available in the universe repository. HERE is the wiki page.

I actually installed K3B in Ubuntu. It was in the repositories. It installed many Mb's of KDE libs as depedencies. I burnt a DVD last night and watched it, an amateur fan movie, which is free to download, Star Wars "Revelations". That was impressive.

I have been using K3b for burning Cds in linux. And I am very happy for the same.
But before K3b I used to burn Cds using cdrecord .

You can read all about it here.

you cant beat k3b. although gnome has a built-in burning software. just pop in a blank dvd/cd, and it should pop up with a blank file folder window where you can drag and drop files and then burn.

One small comment to add - K3b (and a lot of burning software) gets a little screwy when you deal with multisession cds. I still have to go to the command line to get it right! Nothing a small script can't handle, though...working on learning how to do it in Python as I type.

gnomebaker seems to be good and it is better if you want "to keep it gnome".

i agree gnomebaker is a capable cd/dvd burner for gnome. just like you, my previous experience burning dvd's with a gui was k3b on suse.

in fact, i had never used gnome prior to trying ubuntu. i knew it was possible to install k3b on ubuntu, but i wanted to keep my system "pure" without all the kde libraries.

try gnomebaker - an easy gui dvd burner written specifically for gnome.
