First, go to www.lightscribe.com and get the following RPM packages:
+
LightScribe is available from the [[AUR]]:
 +
;i686: install {{Package AUR|lightscribe}}
 +
;x86_64: install {{Package AUR|bin32-lightscribe}}
  
* [http://lightscribe.com/downloadSection/linux/index.aspx?id=815 LIGHTSCRIBE SIMPLE LABELER]

 +
*LightScribe Simple Labeler
 +
*LaCie LightScribe Labeler for Linux
 +
Just [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?K=lightscribe use the AUR search engine] to find a list of the available software.
  
best would be, to create a subfolder inside your home-folder:
+
==Enhanced Label Contrast Utility==
mkdir lightscribe
+
If you want to adjust contrast (often it is not dark enough), you can run:
 
+
  # /usr/lib/lightscribe/elcu.sh
and save the packages there
 
 
 
== Installation ==
 
 
 
now, go to the desired directory and extract the packages using rpmextract:
 
 
 
rpmextract.sh lightscribe-*intel.rpm
 
rpmextract.sh lightscribeApplications*intel.rpm
 
 
 
Now, there are three new subfolders:
 
opt/
 
usr/
 
etc/
 
 
 
these have to be moved:
 
mv -R opt/ /
 
mv -R usr/ /
 
mv -R etc/ /
 
 
 
now, create a symbolic link:
 
ln -sf /opt/lightscribeApplications/SimpleLabeler/SimpleLabeler /usr/bin/SimpleLabeler
 
 
 
and finally you can start by typing:
 
SimpleLabeler
 
 
 
that's all
 
 
 
If you want to adjust contrast (often it's not dark enough), you can run  
 
  /usr/lib/lightscribe/elcu.sh
 
as root.
 
 
 
For 64 bits systems, just install this package too :
 
pacman -S  lib32-libstdc++5
