In need of a good burning app (with perferably GTK frontend)

I use Gnome and Im the proud owner of a new gentoo system (LOVE IT). I use to use gtoaster (GnomeToaster) but was wondering if there was anything else out there that had a better (simpler) front-end. Gtoaster worked, just looking for any others that may be eaiser

Type of CDs that will be burned on this system:
  • audio
    data from ISO files

I understand that this can all be done from the console, but need the simple front-end for family members + me when Im tired and slow. Thanks guys.

Ben! What's up man!?

Ok, so, let's see:
K3B (Sadly it's KDE based though - QT )

And here's what I found from freshmeat:

I'd agree, X-CD-Roast is very good.

IMNSHO X-CD-Roast is an over-rated app. I don't like it's non-intuitive interface. Eroaster is MUCH more straight forward, flows well, and doesn't confuse most people.

I find X-CD-Roast a great app to compare things to, when showing how crappy things can be, and when they can be great. I'm sure you can understand which applications represents 'crappy things'

I highly recommend E-roaster also. I used Gtoaster too until I got E. I used them both in Mandrake and Debian. Both work fine but E-roaster is more refined and has a better error logging setup if there are problems.
