I have tried countless cd/dvd burning software on ubuntu 12.04 and none of them work for me, any ideas guys?

I've tried tovidgui, bombono dvd,and mestelix, they are all so very confusing is there any program like dvdflick that is just straight to the point?

Have you tried the default burner installed with 12.04 Brasero? It simple to use and "straight to the point" – stephenmyall Jul 10 '12 at 19:57

@Joren Both Nero & Imgburn are available for Ubuntu as well. If you downvoted the answer, please undo it. :-) – TomKat Oct 12 '13 at 15:00

Another lightweight option is Xfburn. It comes with Xubuntu and Lubuntu, too.
