GnomeBaker – Reliable CD / DVD Burning in GNOME

My Ubuntu PC is dual-boot (Windows XP / Ubuntu 10.10). It has a LG HL-DT-ST-DVD-RAM GH22N30 DVD burner which works really well under Windows using Nero Express, but does a great job turning out coasters (regardless of the burn speed) in Ubuntu using the pre-installed burner Brasero . It also takes about half an hour to turn out a DVD coaster and that was will the bulletproof burn feature turned off!

I’ve put up this this for a couple of years as my other Linux PCs running Kubuntu work fine with their DVD burners. They use K3B which in my view is the most rounded and user friendly Linux DVD burner available.

Over Christmas I seriously considered replacing the DVD burner with something else, after a firmware upgrade made no difference under Linux. Whilst I could have installed K3B in GNOME, my preference was to use a native GNOME DVD burning program as this ensures it is 100% compatible. I even tried the DVD burning capabilities in Nautilus but this turned out to be far too basic and I still had burning problems!

I remembered hearing about GnomeBaker a while ago, which seems to be a much underrated GNOME DVD burner. It exists in the Ubuntu repositories, so installation is really easy. To install from Terminal you just enter:

sudo apt-get install gnomebaker

or just search for gnomebaker in the Ubuntu Software Centre and install.

Once installed, I burnt my first DVD at 8x, no coaster to be seen!

Furthermore, it took under 10 minutes to burn a full DVD! Subsequent burns were also successful and fast. As it works like K3B and Nero, it is easy to use for anyone coming from Windows.

UbuntuGeek has done a very nice tutorial on using GnomeBaker, it can be found here.

The sad thing about GnomeBaker is that it is not the default DVD burning software in many Linux distributions. This might be because of its lack of development, the last release was in June 2008.

If it has any shortcomings then the absence of Universal Disk Format (UDF) support and a file size limit of 4Gb could be considered. However, software shortcomings are opportunities in disguise for software developers keen to cut their teeth on a new project.

So, if there are any software developers looking to take on a new project in 2011, then I think GnomeBaker is a worthy project for consideration.
