The KDE desktop environment provides the [http://k3b.plainblack.com/ K3B] burning application. K3B has a similar interface to burning software found on Windows, such as [http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/Nero Nero] or [http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/CDBurnerXP CDBurnerXP], and is equally easy to use.
'''Note:''' depending upon your distribution, K3B may or may not be included with the installation of KDE. If it does not appear in the KDE application launcher, you should be able to install it using your operating system's software management system. On a FreeBSD system, you can install the K3B package. If you are running an older version of KDE, use the '''pkg_add -r k3b''' command. If you are running KDE4, use the '''pkg_add -r k3b-kde4''' command instead. On a PC-BSD system, you can install the K3b PBI using Software Manager.
To burn your ISO, launch K3B and click "Tools → Burn Image...". Figure demonstrates this screen on a KDE4 system. On a KDE3 system, the menu item may appear as "Burn DVD ISO Image...".
'''Figure Selecting the Burn Image Tool Within K3B'''
A new window, seen in Figure, will launch. Click the blue folder to browse to the location of your .iso file.
'''Figure K3B's Burn Image Screen'''
Once your file is listed, ensure a blank DVD is inserted and click the "Start" button. K3B will automatically eject the DVD once the burn is complete.
