From lightscribe.com:

LightScribe is an innovative technology that uses a special disc drive, special media, and label-making software to burn labels directly onto CDs and DVDs.

Labels burnt using LightScribe are monochromatic, as it works by making a chemical in the media react with the laser beam and change color.

Installation

To use LightScribe, regardless of which operating system you're using, you need two pieces of software: the LightScribe System Software and another LightScribe label making software.

On Arch, the LightScribe System Software is available from the AUR:

Labelers

In the AUR you can find:

  • LightScribe Simple Labeler: official tool to make simple thin labels. You can only type text and use the provided templates as separators. Useful to make good looking labels quickly (it takes only 3 minutes, as opposed to a full-disk label which takes around 30 minutes)
  • LaCie 4L LightScribe Labeler for Linux: tool from LaCie that allows to create a full-disk label using a picture.

Additionally, searching for lightscribe in the AUR will create a list of related software.

Enhanced Label Contrast Utility

To adjust the contrast which is often too light, run:

# /usr/lib/lightscribe/elcu.sh

then hit 1 to use the enhanced contrast setting or 2 to reset it. Note that some programs (like LaCie 4L) have this option built-in and it can be changed at runtime.
