OK, the software was fit for purpose, mind you I did have to construct a custom template for my paper, which wouldn't have been a problem in itself, except that I had to convert all my margins from mm to inches. Very disappointing and time consuming.

Aaargh! :mad:

Got there in the end though, 1 inch = 25.4mm FYI.

:popcorn:

Uuuuhm, under edit->preferences you can set your preferred units of measurement and papersize. This also works for the template designer. ( at least here it does ).

Hope this helps next time :-)

I am new and I don't understand how to get the software you are describing. I went to synaptic web site and nothing. What does code mean? I am very interested in learning all about Linux but don't have time to read every thread to get answers

See that stuff in the code box: "sudo aptitude..." and all the rest?

You use Copy to select all of that code in the box and then Paste it into a Terminal. We use code boxes so you know exactly what to cut and paste and so you don't have to worry about typing it in correctly.

The code in that box will download and install an application called glabels using Aptitude. You could open Synaptic package manager and, using the Search box, search on gLabels and install it that way, but it's often easier to tell someone how to download a package using the Terminal and aptitude, or apt-get, because it's just one line of code instead of having to say, "Click here, do this, click here, then here, do this, click that" etc. etc. etc.

The above string of code translated:

sudo - installing software requires the Super User privileges so we invoke it using 'sudo'...
aptitude - use aptitude to find a package...
install - install the package once you find it...
glabels - the name of the package to find and install.
