Brasero – Disk Burning App for Ubuntu, Linux Mint

1 min

Here is how to install Brasero in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, 18.04, 18.10, and other Linux distributions.


Brasero is a very simple disk burning GNOME app available for all Linux distributions. However, for some time it has been removed from the standard Ubuntu OS images. The main reason behind this is the low usage of DVD, CD storage mediums in recent times. However, if you still want to burn some disks, erase or re-write some disks, you can still install Brasero in Ubuntu and other Linux distributions.

Let’s have a look at the Brasero’s features.
