xfburn is easy to use burning software for the Xfce desktop environment (but will work with others). It uses libburn and libisofs as a backend. ISO files can be burned, data composition created, discs blanked, and DVD-RW media formatted and deformatted. Common burning software features not yet implemented are audio CD creation and disc copying.
datapacker is a tool to group files by size such that they fill fixed-size containers (called "bins") using the minimum number of containers. This is useful, for instance, if you want to archive a number of files to CD or DVD, and want to organize them such that you use the minimum possible number of CDs or DVDs. In many cases, datapacker executes almost instantaneously. Of particular note, the hardlink action can be used to effectively copy data into bins without having to actually copy the data at all. datapacker is a tool in the traditional Unix style; it can be used in pipes and call other tools.
Python Audio Tools is a collection of audio handling programs that work from the command line. These include programs for CD extraction, track conversion from one audio format to another, track renaming and retagging, track identification, CD burning from tracks, and more. It supports internationalized track filenames and metadata using Unicode. It works with high-definition, multi-channel audio as well as CD-quality. Track conversion uses multiple CPUs or CPU cores if available to greatly speed the transcoding process. Track metadata can be retrieved from MusicBrainz, FreeDB, or compatible servers. Audio formats supported are WAV, FLAC, WavPack, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, M4A, Apple Lossless, and more.
Grab&Burn is a powerful tool for grabbing, burning, and mastering of CD and DVD discs. It supports all types of optical storage media (including CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, and DVD-RAM) as well as a wide variety of burning hardware. You can perform ordinal grabbing, copying, and burning operations as well as expert DVD authoring and mastering. These advanced features enable you to create valid DVDs from custom video files, for example, copied from other DVDs. Moreover, with DVD Splitting Wizard you may split DVDs into smaller parts and burn them to DVD writable discs, or use the StarPort DVD Emulator to watch DVD video movies on your PC. This enables you to create copies of 9.4 GB DVDs in several clicks.
cdrkit is CD Recording Kit, a collection of applications related to creation of optical disk media on Unix platforms, from creation of the filesystems used on such media to the actual burning process. It is heavily based on the cdrtools package (partially developed and maintained by Joerg Schilling before), but is maintained independently.
mkcdtoc is a small and flexible command line utility to create TOC files for cdrdao. It reads a list of audio files and outputs a TOC file with a track specification for each audio file. Input data can be a raw list with one file name on each line, or an m3u play list. The program has a modular architecture and can be extended via plugins. The distribution includes a few plugins that can retrieve meta information from audio files to fill CD-TEXT blocks in the generated TOC file. There are plugins to perform audio file to WAVE format conversion.
FUPlayer is a full featured music manager and player for the GNOME desktop. With it, you can play music from your hard drive, create playlists, do real file management using its Trash, and play, rip, and burn audio CDs. It features an interface similar to those of many modern manager-style players, but with many improvements, such as true non-modal search and browse functionality, find-as-you-type, and drag destination highlighting. It aims to be extremely user friendly and efficient to use.
