If you can see it in the package manager, then it has to be at least half decent.

If you want to create your own iso's, ISO Master is quite good.

You can install it using Synaptic Package Manager, just search for isomaster.

Or just use the command:


sudo apt-get install isomaster

k3b is a KDE app, brasero is the gnome equivalent. Both will work fine for burning any disks you want, either .iso or normal CD/DVDs. I use brasero because I use the gnome desktop, and don't want to have to install a ton of kde libraries just to get one program running.

Yeah, why aren't you just using the default burning software that comes with Ubuntu? No need to hunt around for software when it's already right there. Go to Applications->Sound & Video->Brasero Disc Burner. It works just fine.

Agreed, brasero is just right for THE GNOME desktop. :popcorn:

Biggest reason I use IMGBurn; Verify.

Pretty standard in most Windows based burners. In IMGBurn, one tick.

None the hailed Ubuntu application has this feature.

umm, I'm sorry, but you're wrong.

If you go to Tools->Check Integrity in Brasero, you can "Verify" any disc you'd like.

And if you go to Edit->Plugins, you can do "one tick" and Brasero will automatically check the integrity of the individual files or the entire disc(or both) once a burn is completed.

Indeed you are correct, those options are there. Thanks!

Interesting that it use "checksums" to verify.

ImgBurn simply (and reliably) do a byte comparison after open/close cycle of drive.

Why would Brasero use "checksum", I'm curious?

Checksum is the standard accepted way to check the integrity of a file or disk, without having to take the time to go byte by byte, which can take a very long time. It gives the same result, but much more efficiently.

Yeah, the chance of a random write error producing the same checksum as the original file is very very small indeed.
K3b is a really nice image burner as well and has a verify option too.

K3b is a KDE application but there is nothing stopping you from using it in gnome.
It will introduce the Qt library but if you are using skype and a number of other applications chances are good you already have them.

So see if you like Brasero and if you neeed something else check out K3b.
There's Nero for linux as well but who'd use that :p.

I don't really know much about this stuff so pardon the questions. In order to create the checksum, does the program not read every single byte anyway in order to create the checksum?
