It's easy to install (available in Ubuntu Software Center) and works great!

Brasero - Wikipedia

+1, however, Brasero is the default burning tool in Ubuntu hence should already be installed(as of 12.04) so can be found in the dash by typing "brasero" so should not need to be installed –  TrailRider Nov 13 '12 at 4:14

SimpleBurn for Linux

SimpleBurn is a minimalistic application for burning and extracting CDs and DVDs. SimpleBurn was designed to have minimal dependencies. It uses GTK2 libs for the interface for burning it uses CDRTools (cdrecord, cdda2wav, mkisofs) or CDRKit (wodim, icedax, genisoimage). Installation in Ubuntu is a bit complicated since there are no DEB packages available AFAIK. You can compile and install SimpleBurn instead.


"NERO" is removed.

  • Burn data CDs by dragging files or burning an ISO image Burn audio

  • CDs with WAV, MP3, FLAC, and Ogg Vorbis files with CD text and volume normalization

  • Automatically rename MP3 and OGG files to fit a common format like "artist - title.mp3"
  • Burn video CDs and DVDs Support for multisession discs Create eMovix CDs and DVDs Rip audio discs into nearly any format with CDDB support

  • Rip video discs into DivX or XviD encoding

K3b is easily the most powerful free burning program on Linux. Not only can you burn nearly any type of CD or DVD, but it has a pretty loaded preference menu, with advanced features like allowing overburning, forcing "unsafe" operations, or even offering you the choice to not eject a disc after it finishes burning. Its interface is fairly easy to use, letting you choose the type of disc you want to burn in the bottom menu then just dragging and dropping files into the bottom pane. If you're doing anything beyond throwing a few files on a disc, K3b is the program to use.
