Xfburn (or something else) instead of Brasero

  8 years ago

Each time I use Brasero to make some CDs or DVDs it returns error and the CD/DVD is wasted, while Xfburn works fine.

I strongly suggest to include Xfburn (or, at least, something else) as native CD/DVD burner for Linuxmint, instead of Brasero.

This needs to be reconsidered. Ubuntu is dropping Brasero from the standard rollout because it is unmaintained. It's also known to have bugs.

Brasero is severely neglected by the Gnome developers. It can't even burn read/write discs!!
Xfburn is fine and is used by Lubuntu and Xubuntu.
I like k3b but it does drag along a lot of QT & KDE libraries.

yes it's "Considered" status, but I have no idea of what it exactly means (see http://community.linuxmint.com/idea/view/3394)

AFAIK, it is marked as Considered (unless it has changed since your post).

Brasero needs to be replaced by awesone Xfburn...Promoting

raneern99 8 years ago

Yeah, I like xfburn.

... or we can use simply Xfburn

The one problem with K3B is that it requires QT on the default install, although I don't remember if QT is included anyway. Now that Mint has gone past the CD limit, I guess adding QT wouldn't be bad at all.

I use mostly gnome apps, but I don't care at all for brasero.

I agree, to some extent. Brasero is not my first choice. I far prefer K3B maybe that's my KDE history speaking, but I always found Brasero flakey and K3B had a far higher success rate with discs, especially burning Video DVDs.
