Go into Brasero and create a Video Project. Drag your file to this window. Click Burn. That's all there is to it.

Alternatively, you can use the Devede program (it gives you a few more options, including a menu) but Brasero is capable of burning a single movie to DVD.

The absolutely quickest, easiest and most painless answer, is go and buy a "cheap", $30 or so, DVD player from Walmart or some other "cheap" store, that plays DIVX. Since DIVX uses avi format, you don't need to convert.
I used to struggle converting that took hours (I still use an athlon 1800+), until I went out and bought an upconverting Toshiba DVD player ( paid $69 Canadian) that plays DIVX. Just burn the avi to disk and pop it into the player and I swear it looks pretty good playing on my 47" LG TV.
Of course it will only play in a DVIX player, if you lend it to your mother who doesn't have DIVX....

+1 for DeVeDe, it's in the Software Centre

depending on the settings you selected, you should either get an actual ISO that you can burn as an ISO or you will get 2 folders, burn them as a video disc and it should work. I use K3B for burning as it seems to work better for me.

You also need: dvdauthor, vcdimager and gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad (apt://dvdauthor,vcdimager,gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad)

Tovid is another good option you could look at - There is also a GUI version available if you are so inclined:
