Recommend a Cd burning app


I've created a custom pclinunx os minime remaster for a friend. The only thing it lacks is a CD burning program. The problem is that I'm on dialup and can't use synaptic to install K3b. I don't know if I have the dev tools needed to compile it. Can you recommend me a light CD burner app with small size and few dependencies?

CDrecord, which is part of Cdrtools.

It might be simpler to build your own frontend for cdrecord if you have some programming skills. I did something similiar for a friend and created a very mini gui front-end for mount. Not the full-range of possibilities but only the small number of things she wanted to do. I used unicon for it but there are many options out there.
cheers,
jdk

No I don't have programming skills. I'd be grateful if you send that program to me.

And I'd be grateful for world peace. Sadly, I didn't keep it. It was some time ago. Even if I had it, sending you the source code might not be very useful if you don't know anything about programming. If you want to learn, you can visit this site: http://unicon.sourceforge.net/
The Unicon manual is freely available from that site.

cheers,
jdk
