Don't know about the envelope, but to make a music-CD just use your favorite burning program and create an audio-CD.

Unfortunately my newbie answer on envelopes is not much more informative. I have found OpenOffice.org convenient for all office functions. Within the hour I have installed LibreOffice, and haven't even looked inside yet.

For printing envelopes in LibreOffice, this may be worth a read. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...elopes-940914/

Easy (relatively) Way

Here is the tex file I use:

Basically, edit the sender and receiver, save the file as envelope.tex then run
pdflatex envelope.tex
pdf2ps envelope.pdf
lpr -o landscape envelope.ps

I wrapped this all in a zenity script to make it easier for me, but this is pretty easy for a couple here and there.

Code:
\documentclass{letter}
\usepackage[left=1in,top=0.15in,papersize={4.125in,9.5in},landscape,twoside=false]{geometry}
\setlength\parskip{0pt}
\pagestyle{empty}
 
\begin{document}
 
Sender Bob
 
505 Main St.

Anytown, CA \ 92666
 
\vspace{1.0in}\large
\setlength\parindent{3.6in}

Receiver Joe

200 Second St.

Sametown, PA \ 08754


\end{document}
