Default CD Burning Software

I'm trying to find some lightweight cd burning software, preferrably written in GTK. I don't want a program that'll drag in half of Gnome or KDE or both with it as dependencies. I use Xfce, and don't want Gnome or KDE on my system. I tried Xcdroast. Is it even maintained? Seems development has stopped. Any other suggestions for cd burning are also welcome?

I also use XFCE and hate extra Gnome and KDE libs.

Normally I just use cdrtools that comes with the base system install. Burncd for iso's and data discs and I like cdrecord for burning Sega Dreamcast CD-R's, it's awesome for that. But I never tried making an mp3 audio cd with either of these.

I might give xcdroast a shot

There is always cdrecord ^_^

I'm not really familiar with front ends, the only ones I know of that should be useful are k3b and gnomebaker. I guess you could check out sysutils/graveman as well.


cdrecord isn't to hard to use although it's got a big fat manual;

For example, burning an iso file to cd-r:
Code:
Terry@dixie$ su - root                                                     7:20
Password:
dixie# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (i386-unknown-freebsd7.0) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 Jörg Schilling
Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'.

dixie# cdrecord -v -pad speed=4 dev=2,0,0 foo.iso
That reminds me... Need to do something with this fresh Slackware disk ;-)

mybashburn is pretty nice. Of course, there's a bug in the port. It doesn't give executable permissions to the shell scripts, so the features don't work without correcting the permissions.

your life with cdrecord can be made easier by giving it a config file, /usr/local/etc/cdrecord:
Code:
CDR_DEVICE=panasonic

# drive name    device  speed   fifosize driveropts

panasonic=      0,0,0   -1      -1      burnfree
see the default config file for more information.
Setting cdrecord suid (chmod u+s /usr/local/bin/cdrecord) makes things easier, but it does put you at a risk of privilege escalation if there are bugs in cdrecord.

I also use burncd, as explained in 18.6.3 burncd. For a gui, I still prefer K3B. The dependencies are outrageous, but it's my favorite burning app.

I got your email, thanks for the report ... I'll fix it later.
