I'm new to Ubuntu, could someone help me with an installer application? I have a 12.04 LTS...


You could use Brasero.

Some of its features:

  • Image Burning
  • Data CD/DVD
  • Audio CD
  • CD/DVD copy

You can install it by using Ubuntu's Software Center.

  • Brasero has a not-so-good reviews and ratings... But basically I need a program to open any downloads from the net... – Tonio67 Jul 27 '13 at 22:30
  • It only has a bad rating because of a bug when burning audio CD's which is easily solvable. Brasero has always worked fine for me. – Joren Jul 27 '13 at 22:33
  • Can it burn ISO files too? And do you know how to solve the bug issue/ – Tonio67 Jul 27 '13 at 22:35
  • It burns ISO files as stated in my answer. The bug can be solved like this: askubuntu.com/questions/325269/… – Joren Jul 27 '13 at 22:37
  • Thanks, I will try it... But still want to know, which program I need to select to open a downloaded file from the net, if I choose to do that... – Tonio67 Jul 27 '13 at 22:48

You can install IsoMount from the software center to mount and open .iso files

Brasero Disk Burner to make CD/DVD.

The program which you can choose depends on the extension of a file.


For data discs and ISO's I think K3B is the way to go. It also works very well for audio CD's. I have also used Brasero it's pretty simple.

To install K3B, click K3B Install comixcursors-lefthanded.

Also you can try Nero, to install it, download the DEB file from Nero. Once downloded, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, navigate to the downloads folder, and run the command(s) below:

sudo dpkg -i <file_name>.deb
