Is there not a better burning program for Crunchbang?

I thought many people did not like XFburn?  I've heard that K3B is the best burning software?  Why is it not used on Crunchbang?  If its about the footprint then is it not better to have something that works and is slightly larger than something small and duff?  Curious!

Linux is all about choice. If you like something better, please use it. Personally, I prefer wodim: http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/topic … o-dvd-cli/

Re: Is there not a better burning program for Crunchbang?

I love XFburn, and it fits with CrunchBang because it's part of XFCE, several components of which are already in CrunchBang.  K3B is wonderful and has some nifty bells & whistles that XFburn, Brasero, and other burning GUI packages do not have, but it brings a lot of KDE dependencies, because it was developed for the KDE environment.  Besides, it just looks out of place in Openbox.

I apologize for feeding the troll.

Re: Is there not a better burning program for Crunchbang?

I could never find out how to make and ISO form a CD or DVD with Xfburn, but I have that option right up front (actually, on the left, third choice down) with Brasero.

Takes a few extra MB's on the hard-drive, but if you're not cramped for space...

[sudo apt-get install brasero && sudo apt-get remove xfburn]

It's right on the first screen when I start xfburn ("burn image"):

That burnt (not sure of the verb here) an ISO to CD/DVD, not creating an ISO for storage if Joey_Baggadonuts (not his real name), dragged the data-side of a CD across the desktop and damaging the disk.

With Brasero, I hit Copy Disk, select [save to image], and we're 80% done.

Ah. Sorry -- I misunderstood your post. Can't you use "dd" or "mkisofs" to do that ? http://www.wikihow.com/Create-an-ISO-File-in-Linux

Re: Is there not a better burning program for Crunchbang?

I could but, honestly, [dd] scares the hell out of me! Always a bit worried I'll be doing something easy and innocent and wipe the whole hard-drive, and fully comprehend the idea as my finger is hitting the (enter) key. Seriously, there have been nightmares about this...:/

Brasero seems a better way...

Re: Is there not a better burning program for Crunchbang?

Ah, the beauty of Linux. It's so nice that we have these choices. You can have the safety of Brasero, I'll keep my 18 Mb and risk dd to my main hard drive. Maybe not "better" -- just "different" smile

Re: Is there not a better burning program for Crunchbang?

Yeah...the reason you can't copy a data CD to a .iso with XFburn is pretty much in the program name - it's a CD/DVD burner, not a ripper.  to copy a data CD/DVD to .iso, you need something like isomaster.

xfburn uses libburnia only, but brasero and k3b can use both (libburnia or cdrecords). Actualy libburnia was not implemented that feature like readcd utility has from cdrecords... Make sure you have wodim packages iinstalled and do this if you want to rip something from CD/DVD:

readom dev=/dev/cdrom f=file.iso
