All those graphical programs are just front-ends for 
- cdrecord (CDs)
- growisofs (fro DVDs, from the dvd+rw-tools package)

So try and get those to work from the command-line first. Then install
k3b or baker or whatever.

My usual invocation for cdrecord for data disks is:
  cdrecord -v -eject -dao speed=8 driveropts=burnfree dev=1,1,0 -pad \
  -data file.iso

You'll have to adjust the dev part by looking at the output of 
'cdrecord -scanbus'. Cdrecord requires atapicam or a SCSI burner, btw.

For burning music, use -audio instead of -data, and feed it a bunch of
WAV files. See cdrecord(1).

The growisofs(1m) manual has examples on how to use it.
