K3b is Just Swell for CD and DVD Burning in GNU/Linux

Filed under
Software

When I wrote about using Brasero for CD burning in GNOME a few months ago, I realized that the KDE app K3b was out there and probably pretty good, but Brasero was fine for what I was doing at the time so I didn’t look any further.

I also figured I’d want to try K3b soon enough when I needed more options and flexibility. Well it didn’t take many burning jobs to get there. I wanted to burn a data backup DVD and realized that Brasero was dereferencing symbolic links. That is, if it finds a link to a directory or file, it counts linked files as actual files to be added to the compilation rather than just links. I can understand that some people might want this behavior, but just as surely some people (like me) may not. But when I went looking for a way to set a preference on this, I couldn’t find a place to configure any settings. You take it or leave it, I guess.
