Requirements

The following packages are needed

  • rpmextract
  • libstdc++5
pacman -S rpmextract libstdc++5

Preparation

First, go to www.lightscribe.com and get the following RPM packages:

best would be, to create a subfolder inside your home-folder:

mkdir lightscribe

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
