Description Joe Zeff 2013-10-20 01:00:00 EDT
Description of problem:

The instructions for burning an ISO under Linux only cover Gnome.  There should at least be some information on how this is done under KDE, Xfce and LDXE.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use a DE other than Gnome
2.Look for information here on burning an ISO

Actual results:


Expected results:

Somewhat more comprehensive coverage

Additional info:

Yes, I understand that Fedora is Gnome-centric, but there should, at the very least, be an attempt to cover the other most popular DEs.  As far as the more obscure selections go, it's probably safe to say that if you know enough to install it and get it working properly, you probably know enough not to need help from this page.

In this document, I find:

4.3. Burning discs under Linux
4.3.1. Burning discs on the GNOME desktop
4.3.2. Burning discs with K3b
4.3.3. Burning discs with Brasero
4.3.4. Burning discs with wodim from the command line

Is there a specific disc burning application that you would like to see documented, or an improvement in the content that you can suggest?
Comment 2 Joe Zeff 2013-12-20 17:07:51 EST
Well, I use Xfce, and among other things I have xfburn installed.  It's not so much a matter of how to use the different programs as what programs are the default for more DEs than Gnome and KDE.  However, looking at the instructions for Fedora 20, it simply tells you to right-click on the .iso and select the appropriate option from the context menu.  As this new wording does exactly what I was asking for, I'm going to close this as there's no reason to leave it open.
