Ouch.  What changed on your machine recently?

I presume by "CL" you mean "command line"; you can certainly still use a
console to run software in Ubuntu, even if they don't go out of their
way to encourage it.

The easy way is to open up 'Konsole' from the system section of the
menu, and run 'k3b' from there -- it will be in the path -- to see what
output it delivers.

Alternately, consult the ~/.xsession-errors file, which is where the
stderr and stdout streams from applications are, by default, sent.
