I notice that brasero 2.x has been masked for removal. The mask notice suggests that we switch to newer environments, and mate-base/mate is one of the ones that is suggested.

But MATE uses brasero as its disc burner (or at least that's what I've always seen.)

So if brasero is going away, what are compatible alternatives for the MATE environment?

From what I can tell, brasero isn't fully going away, just brasero-2 is. Mostly because it looks like gnome is intent to discontinue having any gtk2 around. The most your going really get to do, is copy the ebuild off to a overlay to keep a copy, switch to some other disc burner, or you can always bite the bullet and update to a newer version of brasero with gtk3.

Making a copy of the ebuild was the first thing I did.

It seems to me that brasero-2 is the version that is most compatible with MATE. I'll confess that I do have an unholy (and probably fragile) mix of gtk2 and gtk3 libraries installed. Maybe brasero-3 would install, but then other things sneak in as a result of dependencies. It's getting so I don't know what's compatible with what these days. My package.mask is ugly.

Maybe I need to switch to screen as my WM and have done with this mess. :)

I'm running brasero-3.11.3 with the latest stable MATE and haven't noticed any problems using the application and have nothing in my package.mask file
