More recently, on January 28, 2012 was released a new version 1.2.0 of the libburnia (libisofs, libisofs and libisoburn). Maybe it's a good reason to update it in the repository of the Salix OS and try it with the GUI Xfburn?

At the same time there will be a new version of Slackware.

SimpleBurn requires Mplayer to be rebuilt with support for copy protection. You can do this easily using options in the SlackBuild.

For what it's worth, I always had problems with Brasero until recently.

There is a small program "flburn" have not tried it. Another distro replaced brasero with it.

This one uses FLTK instead of GTK and the user interface reminds me to my first burning app anno 199x written in TCL/TK. No, it's even worse than the old app :mrgreen:

Just to say I never had problems with Brasero. Maybe the "problems" must be described precisely and reported back, and maybe we could patch it for unwanted behavior but this application is easy to use to my opinion, no like others. K3B is very good, but way too complete and with a lot of dependancies.

I agree the interface is very nice. My problems have been with the actual burning, so now I just use xfburn for that.

I'd divide the problems into three:

1) annoying messages about "Windows compatibility" and folder nesting depth. This is only a problem if you have to back up data for someone who uses dodgy names and over-nested directories;

2) sometimes spends ages on something to do with md5sum, and may fail. Lots of people seem to have had this problem, to judge from internet search. It looks like a bug that may get fixed in the next version;

3) apart from that, I've had a lot of bad burns lately, but I don't get them using other apps.
