- libxfce4ui
Now it should build fine on modern systems again.
Work done by Jan Rękorajski <> and Skunnyk
<> -- Thanks!
- New icon by Simon Steinbeiß <>
- Bugfixes, with some help of Christoph Wickert, Samuli Suominen, and
Lionel Le Folgoc.
- Hide file browser and toolbar by default (it may be removed in future
xfburn 0.4.3 (2010-02-12)

when the HAL daemon is not running.
- Again show the volume name in the burn dialog if it has the default value
- By default let libburn autodetect the write mode
- Fix a crash after burning is complete
- Fix a crash when adding files to a composition which was non-empty
- Don't ask unlimited number of times if a disc should get blanked
- Always check for mounted discs before using the drive
xfburn 0.4.2 (2009-07-23)
- Internal updates in preparation for better handling of disc detection
- Handle drag and drop of filenames with spaces from nautilus (closes #4992)
- Insert dragged file dropped on top of another file instead of crashing
(closes #5299)
- Properly detect the available space on an audio CD (closes #5302)

Thunar (and other file managers). Otherwise gtk complains (and potentially
causes errors).
- Adding directories to a composition from within xfburn works again.
- Bump libburn version requirement to 0.5.6, since earlier versions might
trigger a crash in libburn's fifo code. Version 0.4.2 or later will work,
aside from this problem.
- Correctly detect some burners for which HAL reported unexpected values.
- Fall back to libburn-based burner detection if HAL does not find any.

xfburn 0.4.0 (2008-12-20)
- Display an error if gstreamer realizes a plugin is missing to decode a file
- Jean-François Wauthy officially retired as maintainer. Thank you for all the
work, p0llux!

- Allow adding hidden files and devices to the composition through the
command line (they are not shown in the file selector)
- Add an entry to Thunar's sendto menu for adding to a data composition
(thanks Mike Massonnet)
- Add directories to a data composition with the correct timestamp
(thanks JR Oldroyd for discovering this)
- Stop button works now
- Drag and drop into an audio composition now adds files in the correct order
- Check that the size of the burn run actually fits on the inserted disc
- Internal and string improvements
xfburn 0.3.91 (2008-11-03)
- Use gstreamer to decompress any supported audio files to burn an audio CD ("gst" transcoder)
NOTE: support for this is new, and not too unlikely to have some bugs ;-)
- Burn audio CDs from uncompressed CD audio .wav files ("basic" transcoder)
- Allow drags and drop from file managers like Thunar (text/uri-list target)
- Require HAL if compiled with HAL support
- Try to unmount a drive if it is not accessible (requires thunar-vfs)

once the burn dialog shows up
xfburn 0.3.2 (2008-07-15)
- Also set burn speed when burning an image
- Fix bug which would complain about missing speed list when blanking
after the question from the burn composition dialog
- Bugfix: wait in main() to let the dialogs run when there is no main
- Update many translations
xfburn 0.3.1 (2008-07-10)
- Implemented basic CLI options
- Actually set speed in burn backend
WARNING: my dvd test burn failed if a speed was set!! CD was ok though.
Use "Max" as speed if that is the case for you to get the old behavior,
and _please_ report this as a bug! Please include the console output if
debug is enabled, or otherwise some info on the burner that was used.
- Use fifo buffering, default is 4MB, adjustable in the preferences
- Preserve file attributes
- Now using threads for adding files, and the adding can get aborted
- If the burning dialog comes up with a full but erasable disc in the drive,
prompt to show the blanking dialog

- Use libburn ( instead of cdrecord tools
- Avoid adding non regular files (bug #2179)
- Directory are sort before files in data composition
- Fix segfault when removing a file and one of its parent directory together
- Try to use media-optical and media-cdrom as themable icon before gtk-cdrom in order to avoid crappy png icon being shown in Preferences dialog
- Fix icon size in filesystem browser
- Add icons for actions based on icons from the Tango icontheme

xfburn 0.1.0alpha
- First public release
- Supports cdrw blanking, cd copying, creating iso, composition of files
Version 0.5.5, 2017-12-14
An easy to use burning software for the xfce desktop environment (but of
course will work with others). It uses libburn and libisofs as a backend, in
difference to most other GUI programs at the moment. Visit for more information about these libraries.
xfburn is still a new program, and does not yet do all common burning related
Currently implemented is:
* Create data compositions
- Burn to CD, DVD, or BluRay (BD)
- Create ISO images
* Burn ISO images
* Create and burn audio CDs
* Blank discs
* Format and deformat DVD-RW discs
At this time there is no multisession support.
Note: Stream Recording disables error management for BD only, which increases
the burning speed. Using it seems to be the best option since discs with
errors tend to fail even when stream recording is disabled.
Audio CD support details
Included are two transcoders: basic, which just passes through uncompressed
wav data, and gst (gstreamer), which can decode any audio file for which a
gstreamer plugin is present.
The basic transcoder:
- - - - - - - - - - -
Only CD-quality, uncompressed (PCM) Wave files can be added to an audio
compilation. Use i.e. your favority audio player with a disc writer output
mode / plugin to decompress your existing audio files. If .wav files are added
to the compilation, their headers get checked to make sure they are of the
right format. Note that this check is not very well tested (in particular it's
not likely to work on big-endian machines like PowerPC). It does not require
any external libraries
The gst transcoder:
- - - - - - - - - -
Based on the gstreamer library, it can decode pretty much any audio content,
as long as you have the appropriate plugins installed. Note that by default
most distributions do _not_ install these plugins. But a simple search for
gstreamer plugins in your package manager should quickly allow you to install
You can at startup switch between the transcoders, see the command line help
for more information.
* libisofs version 0.6.2 or newer
* libburn version 0.4.2 or newer
WARNING: libburn 0.4.2 - 0.5.4 are API compatible, but might trigger
an error in libburn's fifo code.
RECOMMENDED is version 0.5.6 or newer, where the bug was fixed.
Optional, but highly recommended
* gstreamer (1.0+, required for burning audio CDs from compressed music
* gstreamer pbutils (they usually come with gstreamer as far as I know)
* gstreamer plugins (look for the good, the bad and the ugly plugin pack,
most likely you want all of these)
Let the ``highly recommended'' part be highlighted once more. Of course
gstreamer will not matter if you do not plan on burning audio CDs, but the
other two libraries will come in handy in almost all situations.
The author works with both hal and thunar-vfs enabled, so there might be the
occasional bug that breaks compilation without these components. Xfburn should
work without these optional components, but it is not well tested at all.
Should something not compile or work as expected, please report a bug, and it
will get fixed.
Future Plans
Missing functionality that would be nice to have:
* Save and load compositions
* Verification
* Copy discs (needs backend support)
* Automatic checksum creation
* Plugin support
There is no, and never will be, a timeline for these. Let us know if you think
something is missing on this list. If you really need something implemented,
feel free to help us out :-).
At present development is in maintenance mode, as the author does not have a
lot of time.
Bugs & Feedback
Any comments are welcome! We aim to make xfburn a very easily usable program.
So if you think something could be implemented differently, feel free to speak
up and it will be considered. Please send all feedbacks to, or
use the xfce mailing lists. Bugs are best placed in the xfce bugtracker at
If xfburn crashes, freezes, or somehow makes no progress for you, then you can
help greatly in debugging the problem. It does require you to build xfburn from
the sources, and to install gdb. If you can handle that, here are the exact
1) Rebuild xfburn with debugging support - grab the sources, and run:
$ ./configure --enable-debug=full && make clean all
2) Enable core dumps, then run xfburn until it hangs, or crashes:
$ ulimit -c unlimited; xfburn/xfburn 2>&1 | tee xfburn.output
3) From another terminal, kill xfburn (only if it hasn't crashed already, of coures)
$ kill -SEGV `pidof xfburn`
4) Get a backtrace from the coredump:
$ gdb xfburn/xfburn core.32270 --batch -ex 'thread apply all bt' > xfburn.backtrace
(Note that sometimes the core.xxxxxx file is just called core, and that 32270 is
just an arbitrary number - yours will be different)
5) Open up a bug report at for xfburn, and add
both the xfburn.output and the xfburn.backtrace files to it. Done!
There is no need to attach the core dump, as it is heavily system dependent.
This program is released under the GNU GPL version 2 or newer. See COPYING for
the full text of the license.
user visible
- remove temporary files
- use more thunar-vfs / gio
- add verification of written disc
- add blu-ray support
- add disc info dialog
various fixes and changes
- cleanup code
- remove duplicated code fragments, in particular
- the burning backend, and [started]
- fix available writing speeds detection (maybe task for libburn?)
- only allow usage of drives with matching capabilities
- when burning ISO image, only show drives capable of
burning to desired disk, or report that we cannot
burn the image if there is no capable drive
(say somebody wants to burn DVD image on
a drive not capable of doing so)
- when burning composition, only show drives capable of
burning desired composition, or report that we cannot
burn the image if no capable drives are found, and
leave all the files previously
added by the user in composition so he could tweak it
- recode copy disk with libburn
- update columns resizing by using column enum index
- take advantage of gvfs in addition to thunar-vfs until thunar-vfs gets deprecated
- disable device selection before image is selected
- once image is selected, populate device selection box
only with appropriate devices (i.e. if it's 1200MB image,
we can't burn it on cd-writer).
- if no suitable writer is found, use that red label thingy
to inform the user
- determine if it's worth it to add advanced burn options dialog to
toggle rockridge and joliet extensions / iso_write_opts profiles
- check for memory leaks while adding files
- check if all the enter/leaving of gdk threads slows adding down
- aborting the adding process can lead to invalid an composition size,
or invalid size of a composition item
disc status should get refreshed
- cairo animation for blanking progress
- allow usage of gtk bookmarks
- make sure that an error pops up if libburn can't grab the drive
- make sure there is always content in the media status label
- find out how to identify a burner from the hal listing, see bug 4957
- fix crash when the user tries to burn a composition with a directory added
from within xfburn
