CD Label Software - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Is there any software or templates available for the creation of CD labels. Not the inserts, I have cdlabelgen. But for use with the AVERY 8692 CD Labels. I tried googling, but no luck so far.

    Default CD Label Software

    Is there any software or templates available for the creation of CD
    labels. Not the inserts, I have cdlabelgen. But for use with the AVERY
    8692 CD Labels.

    I tried googling, but no luck so far. It seems interesting that there is
    a lot of tools available for burning CDs, but not making labels for them.
    I hate having to boot into Windows just to make labels.

    Don't use it this way much (since the rest of the family uses a

    Mediaface installed and running under Wine with Redhat 9. Ran OK and
    printed just fine to an HP940c printer.

    I was kinda of hoping for a native linux app. I guess until I can find
    one it is easier to use the Winds software. Just installed wine and
    now need to configure it. BLAH. Maybe I should try and write a label
    program.

    kcdlabel could be what you need.

    It should be available at http://www.rpmfind.net


    Bonne chance

    Thanks to all who replied. I downloaded and installed glabels, and it
    looks like I might be able to get this to work. Still not quite like as
    user friendly as some of the Winds packages.

    I am particularly happy with glabels because the save-file format is
    XML and, over and above the GUI tools that come with the glabels program,
    it is very easy to generate my own save-files (in XML) from database and
    other programs and then use the batch version to print them.

    glabels-batch -o chanteuse.ps -s 2 chanteuse.glabels

    The above shell command will read the previously generated (such as
    from a database or other program) glabels save-file (chanteuse.glabels)
    and generate a two-page postscript output file (chanteuse.ps).
    Similarly, the master template file is also in XML. This makes it
    easy when I want to add my own templates.
    See: /usr/local/share/glabels/predefined-labels.template

    And, of course, glabels is "open source".
    And, oh yeah, it's free.
