I've not been able to find "glabels" or any other labeling program for CD/DVD. Therefore, I am making a wish (eyes closed, of course), as I have a CD with two masses of Josquin des Prez awaiting a label, as a marking pen on such a CD somehow doesn't seem to do justice.

[Sidebar and very low priority: Could the collection of available musician icons for forum member avatars include composers of classical music? I'd be happy to attempt to find some unlicensed ones to contribute if I know where to contribute.]

You can use Fotowall for CD/DVD covers.

Probably depends a bit on whether you are using label sheets or printable disks. But For the former, the tool that I have came with a .tiff template that I could then add designs using gimp, and for the latter again I always just filled in a circle within a square image either with gimp or OpenOffice draw.

P.S. You can upload any image from your machine as an avatar, just use the upload image option in the profile setting.

Thanks for the suggestion. I installed and took a look. I cannot imagine how it works for CD covers. What I need is something in a template that matches existing templates by Memorex, etc. glabels does that.

I'm using label sheets by Memorex. Glabels has a template that is perfect for it, along with the ability to add text, colors, graphics. Searching for a template online, I found a pdf of the Memorex template at http://www.worldlabel.com/, opened it in LibreOffice Draw, and inserted tables for text. When I printed onto the Memorex label (high quality laser printer), things were off noticeably. The templates didn't match.

I'll keep glabels on my wish list and hope that it appears in the repos someday soon.

Thanks

SW,

And obviously a spirit of humility pervades this piece of teamwork -- pretty rare, not to mention refreshing!! Thank you for responding to my prior silent frustration by taking on this little project. We'll all benefit from it, and I'm sitting here this Sunday morning rather amazed ... again ... and glad I tried Pardus 2011 a little more than a month ago, where users make a difference.

Noisy, extended applause indeed to you and to Atolboo for all of your contributions. And again, "What a community!"

And, inspiried by atolboo's applause smiley:

David
