gcombust

gcombust is a CD burner GUI. It works as a GTK+ frontend for mkisofs, mkhybrid, cdrecord, and cdlabelgen. It has primitive support for controlling the directory (root) structure and size of an image without copying files/symlinking or writing 10 lines of arguments. It can also maximize disk usage by hinting at which directories/files to use.

Would be nice if someone took this and ported to gtk2
This is imho still the best interface. But the gtk1 is annoying to look at and buggy. Also might provide an interface to the new libburn stuff that is being developed to bypass cdrecord tools in all...

Gcombust - A few comments
One littile thing I like about gcombust that is subtle but realy helpfull, is the tooltips

most apps will have a tickbox/button saying X and the tooltip will read 'this does X',

Where as gcombust gives a full description of the option. removing the need for help- Keep up the good work, this is realy a mature app.

Very good program, nice work people!
Very successful with GCombust - first time success, and i'm a 'very newbie' Linux user. Old Philips CDD3610 drive (2x2x6), burned first try. Software interface may be a little scary for some, but I had a little experience with Adaptec software on Windows (burned a total of 6 discs), so I got through GCombust with that knowledge.
9 out of 10.

gcombust, a program which saved my day!
This app is really smashing! I tinkered around with all the
commandline switches for mkisofs and cdrecord, I tried xcdroast
which is comaratively old but cannot cope with CD-RW media or
multisession burning.
Now this gcombust is just what I've been looking for.
Good work!
