Synopsis

k3b [options]

k3b is a CD burning program with a graphical user interface. (For a command-line interface, see cdrecord.) Run the program and when the main window appears, visit the File menu. Browse to New Project and select the type of disc you want to burn. A New Data Project simply burns files and directories to the disc so it can be read on other computers. New Music Project and New Video Project should be self-explanatory. Once you’ve selected the type of project, drag your desired files or folders from the top half of the window (showing your filesystem) to the bottom half (listing what will be burned). When done, click the Burn icon.

The Tools menu also has useful commands. These include copying discs, working with ISO images, and ripping audio and video discs to files.
