    Gnomebaker is another one that's gaining in popularity and it's a bit like K3b.

    paulmedic55, what do you want to do?

    k3b is a good program and it has an awful lot of capability. Can we narrow it down?

    xcdroast does not, i believe, require gtk so it will work well without qt or gtk libs installed, and while k3b looks better the functionality is quite the same, no problem burning any types of files, and easy use on isos.

    Well because i wanted to switch to gtk applications and i use now xfce with nautilus as shell (so i can have icons in desktop and a better filemanager) i wanted something that does not use QT and launch other kde related apps (such as arts...) so i wanted something different in gtk to do my job

    Hehe, I know how you feel. Well, maybe try Graveman, that's what I'm using...

    A couple of cool aps i've found that work very well with Xfce:
    Sylpheed Claws - good Kmail alternative, very light
    Tea - Kedit alternative, also light and fast

    If you install some KDE and QT libs it should be possible to run k3b in gnome. However if you do not want to install those you'll be lacking the best burning program the OSS community has to offer. You can allways try to learn cdrdao or cdrecord from the command line
    I\'m so tired .....
