I'm using ubuntu 10.04, 32-bit.
I have had no success burning an ISO file to CD.
Note: Checksum is valid.
The default burner appears to be brasero.
Can anyone recommend another CD burner(s) for me to try?
thanks
tim

Hi
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10.
I highly recommend K3b.
The slight disadvantage for Ubuntu users like you and me is that it needs to install some kde files.

;) No disadvantage at all. I have already installed koqueror, so
most of that is like done already. And I've used K3b a lot on kubuntu
and slackware.
Thanks very much for your recommendation. I'm prepared to review others,
should they be offered, but K3b worked well for me on other distros.
cheers

I use brasero because it's installed by default, but i've used k3b before and it is good.

Unfortunately for ubuntu, results will vary from machine to machine and on
my machine brasero just didn't work at all. I kept getting corrupted copies.
I downloaded k3b and in minutes I had a bootable CD image.

Hi tim042849.

k3b has always been very good.

gnomebaker can do a lot also.

Brasero works fine here with ISO on my LG-Hitachi and SONY Optiarc, in case you want a Gnome alternative, try Gnome CD Baker instead of K3b.

Hi tim,

Programs like k3b are simply flashy frontends for some great commandline programs. Have a look at this page to see some simple commandline recipes for common burning tasks:

Bear in mind that under Ubuntu by default you will not be using Jörg Schillings software, you will be using the Debian fork of his work.

All the best,

Andrew
