Introduction to Nautilus CD Burner

The Nautilus CD Burner package provides an easy method to write files to a CD or DVD burner with GNOME; by drag-and-dropping files using the GNOME file manager, Nautilus.

Package Information

Nautilus CD Burner Dependencies


Nautilus-2.18.3 and HAL-


gnome-mount-0.6 and intltool-0.35.5

Though Nautilus CD Burner happily passes all the configure script checks and then builds successfully without them, the Cdrtools-2.01 and dvd+rw-tools-7.0 packages are required to be installed or you won't be able to create ISO filesystems or burn CDs and DVDs.

User Notes:

Installation of Nautilus CD Burner

Install Nautilus CD Burner by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0) \
            --sysconfdir=/etc/gnome/2.18.3 \
            --libexecdir=$(pkg-config \
                --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0)/lib/nautilus-cd-burner &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--prefix=$(pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0): Setting the prefix using this parameter instead of with $GNOME_PREFIX will ensure that the prefix is consistent with the installation environment and the package will be installed in the correct location.

--sysconfdir=/etc/gnome/2.18.3: This parameter causes the configuration files to be installed in /etc/gnome/2.18.3 instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/etc. Additionally (if applicable), the parameter ensures that the GConf-2 database is correctly updated.

--libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/lib/nautilus-cd-burner: This parameter causes the libexec files to be installed in the preferred location of $GNOME_PREFIX/lib/nautilus-cd-burner instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/libexec.
