I've installed LaCie lightscribe software, but when trying to burn,
I get an error "Printing requires root privileges"

I've tried running 4L-gui using "Terminal Program - Super User Mode"
but I still get the same problem..

Any ideas?

Hi,

Nice work on the disc label! 

You could also try
kdesu 4L-gui

Lisa Marie

P.S.  at ubuntu forum loyelong suggests creating a group called, wheel.  You can read about it at this thread.

Hi,

I didn't know it was a third-party software from HP.  Maybe someday it will be put in the package manager repos. 

Here's another link.  It reads confusing.

If I understand this right this topic is about software to not only print covers for CD/DVD boxes but for the round disclabels themselves as well.

In the dutch Pardus forum, about one year ago (so not really up to date here and there perhaps) we had a topic on this.

I quote some solutions found at that time below....
===================

http://kcdlabel.sourceforge.net/





KCDLabel version 2.13 (KDE 3/Qt 3) : kcdlabel-2.13-KDE3.tar.gz

Install using:
1) cd to directiry where package was extracted to
2) sudo ./configuire
3) sudo make
4) sudo make install

Appears nicely in the menu under Multimedia upon installation.

==================

Other alternatives:

*** Downloading a template for use in Open Office:

CDLabel.sxd
See also: http://www.worldlabel.com/Pages/openoffice-template.htm

*** GIMP plugins:
http://www.shallowsky.com/software/cdplugins/

Gimp Plugins for making CD labels  Grin


=====================

Hope this adds to the discussion, if not sorry to bother you.

I've tried all the methods you mentioned,
but none of them worked for me   Sad

But thank you very much for the help   Smiley

Hi Michiel,

It helps me, though I don't use such software, but I never knew there was a KDE version.  Looks much simpler to install , and I do emphasize the word - install.  Wink  Thanks for that information.

Lisa Marie

Sorry about that Paul, but at least there's an alternative!  It may not share the same features, but give it a try to see how it works.

I am not working with CD labels very often either, so I would not pretend to be an expert on this, far from that.

However the reply that "none of them worked for me" wonders me what exactly you (paul.roberts20 ) feel is missing our wrong with KCDlabel given the features (see below):

Don't regard this as offensive, I am just curious what considerations led you to the conclusion that the alternatives I posted did not work for you. Are they too sober in features, or are they bad in terms of the exact positioning of the final print that comes out of your printer, or is it for some other resaon that you put these alternatives aside.

Features KCDlabel

    * a CD cover consist of 3 main parts :

         1. a backpage : the page on which you'll turn the 2 little rectangle for the cd side;
         2. one page as the front cover, and/or a lot of them as a booklet.
         3. a roundpage : a round CD sticker you can put on a CDR for example;

    * on each page you can put :

         1. one or more images;
         2. one or more single line strings;
         3. one or more rainbow-strings;
         4. one or more multi line texts;
         5. every combinations of (1)->(4) elements!
         6. you can also arrange what I call the body (it is the content of a CD presented in rows and columns);

    * the body can be arranged with :
         1. a selected number of columns;
         2. a deep parsing of the directory tree structure;
         3. horizontal lines as separators;
         4. vertical tree lines to symbolize the directories hierarchy;
         5. page numbers;
         6. a choosen fonts

    * images can be :
         1. of any type recognized by the QT-image extension object;
         2. centered, resized, aligned, moved, deleted ...

    * strings can be :
         1. single lines of text (in the future, I'll add a multi-line text control);
         2. written with a choosen font;
         3. centered, modified, aligned, moved, deleted, colored...


    * you can print (of course) the result directly to a printer, or redirect it to a postscript file for further treatement;

The problem I was having is that I wanted to burn the image directly onto the top surface of my LightScribe cd, rather than print them out and stick them on

Hi,

One last how-to and then I'll leave you alone so you don't mess up your computer.   Wink

So kde-label doesn't burn an image to a disc, but it does make stick-on label for a disc?   I don't know, but like I said, I don't even have such an optical drive that has this image printing capability.

 I can see, you need to install in certain order, or else it won't work correctly. 

The alternative to run gui as root -  gksudo (gnome) or  kdesu (kde).

Ah, now I get the point, thanks for clarifying.

Open a terminal, become administrator with :
Code:
su -

Then, run :
Code:
4L-gui

Thanks for the help, but that didn't work either   Sad

Is there any way to make yourself root for a series of commands?
It only seems to apply to the 4L-gui command, any that LaCie makes appear to be done outside of sudo

Yes, that's : su -
What is the return of the command "groups" ?

Let's try something else :
You can change the ownership of the file /usr/bin/4L-gui in order to become the owner.

Launch Program > System > Other applications > "Konqueror (super user mode)" ;
Go to the /usr/bin/ directory ;
Right-click on the 4L-gui file ;
Choose Properties
Click on the permission tab
Change ownership from root to your user login
Validate by clicking the "OK" button
Run 4L-gui from the command line
