need a lightsribe program


Not lightscribe itself, I've had numerous problems with it. I take all the rpms and convert them to debs via alien, and install them, and it doesn't work. I know I had something before that did it, but I can't remember what is was. I need this as soon as possible.

Thanks!

Download the 'deb' version.

Light-scribe

If you just download and use just the two Debian programs from the Light-scribe web site you'll get a very simple, and not very useful, top-side burner program. You really need to download the 4L-gui program at the La Cie website to do fancy top-side burning. And I believe that's only in RPM format, so it'll have to be converted via Alien.

To relpickett;

Check the link I provided, HP now has their own Linux version available for downloading both as an rpm or deb package choice.

OK, I downloaded and installed all three packages. Downloaded the first and installed. Downloaded the host software and 4L, converted to deb, and installed. Still no luck. Nothing happens when running "4L" or anything. Answers?

I have had good success with the simple HP program, and am actually going home tonight to check out the LaCie software. For basic labelling, the HP program is very simple to use. Install it, start it up, and it will ask you for the top and bottom lines of text, and which basic pattern to use for the remaining border. So long as your labels are short in length, you will not have a problem. I have been using the HP program since I got the lightscribe drive, and have not had a single issue. Like I said, I am about to check out the LaCie software and see what additional features it provides.

I will post back tomarrow (12.05.07)

4L works great as far as moving a pre-created image to the surface of the disk. I found that if I use the cover designer in my favorite burning program, save the image as a graphic, and then pull it in using 4L, the results are satisfactory. I don't particularly care for the shading level, but there are a few more config options I need to check into.

Phantom_cyph: What manufacturer drive are you using, what modules are inserted for it, and what version kernel are you running (also include related software versions of the lightscribe drivers).

Sorry for the posting delay, life gets busy around this time

Cheers!

There is no link .

I searched the HP site from top to bottom and back up again and did not find any linux software for lightscribe. Please post the link you used, I am stumped for now...
