Is there a fine and easy software for Linux that allows a user to burn files on a CD multiple times i.e. allows users to create multi-session cds.

It is better if it is in the Ubuntu repo.

The two major burning suites on Ubuntu definitely support multi-session:

Brasero is the "keep-it-simple" variant. It allows you to burn, copy and erase CD and DVD media: audio, video or data. Brasero supports a.o. on-the-fly burning, and offers multi-session support.

K3b is an alternative – maybe a little more complex, but also offers much more functionality. To get started, "beginners mode" makes it easier to use – while you can unleash its full powers in advanced mode.

Choice is yours. Depending on the desktop variant of Ubuntu you have installed, one or both of them might be already available from the menus.

  • Both of these Are quite out of the box apps. K3b is Heavy with H capital and Brasero regularly fails to burn isos. But after googling a little more I found out xfburn Its installed and runs pretty smooth May 24, 2015 at 13:09
