The most often recommended application for this is xfburn available through
the repositories via Synaptic Package or Software manager, or via terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install xfburn
Set the burn rate to 4x and you should have no problems burning your .iso
file as an image.

Ooo I suspect it's a DVD-Sized ISO in fact? Almost everything is different burning a CD. It's hard to beat the ImgBurn program (which works in Linux under Wine too)...http://www.imgburn.com/...and for the console Linux user, there's wodim and growisofs. More effort to learn them initially, but you get exactly what you ask for.
While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named "manual".

I agree that ImgBurn is a fine image burner for Windows, but what don't you like about Xfburn doing the same thing in Linux?

Xfburn works fine (unlike bloody Brasero) and it's actively maintained: it had a major new release in 2014, and some minor version updates since then. In recent years I've burned hundreds of discs with it, all of them flawless. :)
