under the line that starts “overlays :”. Then run (as root):
$ sudo layman -f $ sudo layman -a lightscribe
or you can type
layman -f -a lightscribe -o 'http://ftp.disconnected-by-peer.at/pub/overlay/geos_one-overlay.xml'
so you don't have to modify the config file
3. If you have a version of Portage that supports sets then you can emerge all the LightScribe apps with:
$ emerge -av @lightscribe
Warning: the qlscribe application requires qt-4. Don't emerge it if you don't want qt-4 on your system. IMO qlscribe is by far the best application of the bunch. If you have qt-4 I suggest you only emerge qlscribe and don't bother with the other apps. The ebuilds that contain other LightScribe apps are: lightscribe-lacie and lightscribe-simplelabeler.
lightscribe-188.8.131.52-linux-2.6-intel.rpm lightscribePublicSDK-184.108.40.206-linux-2.6-intel.rpm lightscribeApplications-220.127.116.11-linux-2.6-intel.rpm
It is slightly easier to download them all at once before you start emerging. If these versions are no longer available, download what is available, and you may have to bump the ebuild version numbers if Mario has not done so already. You won't need the lightscribeApplications rpm if you're only installing qlscribe.
2. If the qlscribe app fails when you want to actually print a label or print a label preview then you can try the following steps to fix a bug in (some versions of) the dbus package:
$ sudo chgrp messagebus /usr/libexec/dbus-daemon-launch-helper $ sudo chmod u+s /usr/libexec/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
3. If you want to use text over a background image in qlscribe, make sure you right click on the image and select “send to Back” to ensure that the image does not hide the text.
4. This howto should help you get up to speed using qlscribe (even if you don't want to use CDDB).
