Hmmm. $ wodim filename.iso works for most situations. But: 1) You must be root, or a member of the 'cdrom' group. Use 'adduser yourusername cdrom' to define the group membership, users allowed to talk directly to the CD drives. (Note also, changes in group membership only take effect at login time.) 2) You have a /dev/cdrw symlink to your CD writer device. I'm not certain whether that symlink is set up automatically by udev, as I don't use udev. If you want to use a different default device than /dev/cdrw, see /etc/wodim.conf.
