    Glabels

    Trying to setup glabels to print a printable CD. Verbatim isn't in the list
    of already configured positions. Just wondered whether there was a quick way
    to configure the x and y axis without using up a whole bunch of CD's

    Re: Glabels

    I had a similar problem when first setting up my Epson printer for CDs ... and I did the alignment by cutting out round shapes from paper the same size as a CD. Yeah, it's time consuming to draw and cut each shape, but it's cheaper than going through a bunch of CDs.
    Ubuntu 17.04 Mate, Mint 18.1 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Found a better way and the quality is stunning because you have more control. If you don't already have it install 'Gimp'
    You have to add the printer plugin called guten-print which can be found in the repos.

    Then to make a long story short follow these instruction here..http://www.creativelabelconcepts.com/gimp/

    One thing he missed in order to save the canvas with an imported image as a jpg you have to export it.
    In guten print you'll have to setup your printer and make sure you select CD print.

    Lovin Linux..
