[edit] Features

  • Create data CDs.
  • Blank RW disks.
  • Burn DVDs.
  • Copy data CDs.
  • Copy audio CDs.
  • Support multisession burning.
  • Record to and burn from existing CD ISO images.
  • Can burn via SCSI and ATAPI on Linux kernels 2.4 and 2.6. Basically if cdrecord works, then GnomeBaker will work.
  • Drag and drop to create data CDs (including drag and drop to/from the Nautilus file manager).
  • Create audio CDs from existing WAV, MP3, FLAC, and Ogg files.
  • Integrate with GConf for storage of application settings.

[edit] Usability

Using Gnomebaker to do anything is a pain. It is completely un-userfriendly.

[edit] No dragging of multiple files, please

It must be mentioned that you can not select two or more files and drag them to the contents of the CD/DVD. No. You have to go to the Project menu and select Add selected files.

[edit] It's Gnome

Gnomebaker is made for Gnome and that usually means that most of the keyboard shortcuts listed in the menus don't work. For example, above mentioned Project menu and select Add selected files claims Shift+Ctrl++ is a shortcut for doing this. This keyboard shortcut, expectedly (It's Gnome..), does nothing. Adding selected files is possible, you just can't do it with the mouse nor using a keyboard shortcut.

Gnomebaker really isn't something worth using or even having installed.
