Dear All,
I liked koverartist so much. I made all my dvd covers using this software. Suddenly it is not there in natty?

What can I do?

Any suggestions?

i have never tried any cd/dvd cover printing apps....but there is "kover". here is the description:

Kover is a WYSIWYG CD cover printer. You have the ability to enter
the title, contents, set background colors, enter text, embed images
or stream the title and tracks from CDDB (including CDDB Code 211).
Kover can authenticate through a proxy (Basic, but not Digest) for
accessing CDDB, and make a CDDB request just by entering the CDDB ID
(i.e., no need to have the CD inserted).

is it the same or similar to what you have used? it should be available through the ubuntu software center or synaptic.

think you can still get koverartist for natty from here:

http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=38195

hope one of those options helps.

Thanks, got it from the PPA and happily producing covers again.

kover is actually only for CDs. I was also deluded at first.

No, kover is different. kover is actually only for CDs. I was also deluded at first. Please see the previous posts.

Have you checkout Disc-wrapper or glabels to make your DVD covers?
