I think that the first thing that you should try is to check to see if 
cdrecord works at all I am not sure if evolution uses cdrecord to actually 
write to a cdr but I know that the others do.  First you need to see what 
device your cd burner is so do cdrecord --scanbus. That will give you some 
output similar to this:
        0,0,0     0) 'HITACHI ' 'GD-2000         ' '1000' Removable CD-ROM
        0,1,0     1) 'LITE-ON ' 'LTR-24102B      ' '5S54' Removable CD-ROM
        0,2,0     2) *
        0,3,0     3) *
        0,4,0     4) *
        0,5,0     5) *
        0,6,0     6) *
        0,7,0     7) *

I know that my cd burner is the LITE-ON one so the command for me to burn a cd 
will be:
cdrecord -v speed=24 dev=0,1,0 -data cd_image.iso
You can download a iso or make one yourself with mkisofs to test it.  If you 
cannot get that to work then your problem is lower level than just the 
frontend not being able to find the burner. If it does work then you know that 
your problem is with the front end.  In order to troubleshoot that problem 
though we will need to have some output to work with.  You can try to open 
those programs from the terminal and post the output.  I hope this helps.
