CD Burning on GNOME


Hi all,

A little question: do you know a good program to burn cds similar to K3b but for Gnome, that is, written in gtk?

Thanks

I believe you can use Nautilus to burn CD's - point it to burn:///

Also Gnome-Toaster is a CD burning program for Gnome, but I have never used it.

If you also have KDE installed, you can use K3B under gnome as well.

You could always try learning the command line burning tools - mkisofs, cdrecord; as well as audio extractors such as cdparanoia and lame.

I hope this helps

I haven't found anything for GNOME thats as good as k3b even though there are some good options like nautilus-burn, gtoaster, eroaster e.t.c. I actually installed k3b on my GNOME desktop coz I find it a lot better than the GNOME alternatives. There is a project called coaster (check on gnomefiles.org) and apparently they are designing something quite similar to K3b but it's not dependent on cdrecord or cdrdao.

I second this, K3B really is the best burn-software available on Linux imho.
(I'll probably get flamed by TTY-nursed-persons who shout cdrecord en mkisofs and such )
