    Question [SOLVED] LightScribe and Linux.

    Dies anyone have any experience using LightScribe under Linux? I went to their web site, and found they do have a Linux version of their software, so I downloaded and installed it. Despite what seemed to be a clean install, it appears to have just disappeared into the ozone. Does it act like a plug-in, and attach itself to available disk writing programs, or did it just vanish?

    I heard of LighScribe for Linux as a plugin for k3B but that was a long time ago.
