    Burning software


    Hello, all

    I was just wondering if any of you might have a suggestion as to decent CD burning software. I realize there are lots of places to look, so I am just asking your favorites. I don't care for K3b, and am looking for a replacement.

    Thanks!

    -Todd

    If you have a DVD burner, k3b and nautilus-burner are your only options at this time. k3b is the better of the 2.
    If you're using a CD burner, you also have X-cd-roast, gnome-toaster, eroaster and some others. My personal favorite is Eroaster.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    I'd still go with U-Turn's suggestion, K3b. Provided you're using KDE as your windowing environment. If you're using GNOME, I've always liked Xcdroast or G-Toaster.

    I'm using XFCE4 as my primary GUI. My KDE isn't 100% operating right now. I seem to have lost kfmclient and a few other things, along with k3b. I broke it a few weeks ago, and kind of got it back up and running. I just haven't gotten around to fixing it yet. I might never fix it. I can run most of the KDE stuff from XFCE, anyhow.

    Thanks!

    I'm a fan of Xfce. I was introduced to it by Slackware 9.1, actually. Yeah, as long as you're able to run KDE apps, you should be okay with K3b. I have a DVD burner but I've also used it for CDs and it has no major annoyances.. If you're planning on using CDs you burned in Linux on a MS Windows box though, you may get annoyed by the fact that all the directories and file names are in CAPS. At least, that's something I've noticed. They look fine in Linux, so I imagine it has something to do with the directory structure K3b uses. Apparently MS Windows isn't terribly compatible with standards. (Go figure. )

    Since you have no DVD burner, I'd suggest Eroaster.

    I'd suggest using cdrecord in terminal. That's my fav!
