CD Burning Applications for Ubuntu


There are not many applications for recording optical media under Linux. On the other hand, applications for Windows that allows a user to write a CD or DVD are numerous, but the most important difference is that those available on Linux are free and / or open source, with some exceptions. But all have basically the same purpose – to write or copy a disk.

In the world of Linux, the most common applications for burning optical media are usually pre-installed with the operating system chosen by the user. If not, they can be downloaded and installed easily on almost any platform.

Here are some of the most common such programs for Ubuntu:

Applications for Gnome / GTK

Brasero

Brasero is one of the most popular tools in the world of burning CDs. It usually comes pre-installed in most distributions that use Gnome. Brasero provides the user with a very friendly and simple interface while keeping all the important features needed by a user. Brasero is an application that requires minimal resources, providing maximum functionality, all integrated in one intuitive interface.

GnomeBaker

GnomeBaker is another GTK application with the same functionality as Brasero, but with a different interface. GnomeBaker gives the user an interface similar to Nero and K3B. The difference in use depends on the visual tastes.

X-CD-Roast

X-CD-Roast is an application to burn discs with its basic functions, but comes with a relatively primitive interface. Many users might find its interface as hard to use.

KDE Applications

K3B

K3B is probably one of the most popular programs available in the Linux world. It has many advanced features and options that would satisfy most users of such a program. It is available for both KDE and Gnome. Generally, K3B is regarded as the Nero of Linux.

    What do you mean there are not many applications for recording optical media under Linux. ARE YOU CRAZY? There are a multitude of applications for this. Let me name a few you seemed to have missed.

    1. bashburn
    2. graveman
    3. xfburn
    4. nero (for linux)
    5. imgburn (install through wine) ((doesn’t really count))
    6. SimpleBurn
    7. CDRDAO Command Line Tool

    I am sure there are even more that I have left out or forgotten, but to say there aren’t many is just completely wrong.

    NO! Linux is an operating styesm. Anything cloud is a loose term for providing remote services for client computers. This can include remote access to programs or storage. Hosting on Linux means the machine runs the Linux operating styesm, which is 80 % of the Internet. Cloud services are run over some hosts as an extra.References :
