    Question CDG creation?

    I've created a few audio files to make some karaoke tracks. Problem is, I can't seem to find a program that creates CDG files. The Software Store has nothing, and Googling various keywords (linux, ubuntu, cdg, cd+g, create) turns up little besides PyKaraoke.

    There are a few available for Windows, but I'd rather resort to WINE unless absolutely necessary. I'd rather learn how to create an MPEG/AVI first.

    Has anybody else solved this problem before?

    Here's another bump. Also looking, but appears ubuntu and linux overall is limited in this respect.

    I haven't been able to find a Linux program either. My imperfect work around is to create ogg+kate files and play them through vlc, enabling a visualization, and then (through the video menu) subtitles.
    First convert your wav files to ogg using
    oggenc -o songMusic.ogg song.wav

    then create an ogg file containing the lyrics lrc information (see lrcgenerator.com to create lrc files from lyrics text)
    kateenc -t lrc -c LRC -l en_US -o songLyrics.ogg song.lrc

    then merge the two
    oggz merge -o song.ogg songLyrics.ogg songMusic.ogg

    Unfortunately, pykaraoke doesn't support ogg, so I've only been able to get this to work in vlc
