Just before departing for the Philippines I bought a Lacie external DVD burner for using with the EEEPC. I only needed to be able to burn DVDs while travelling but, since the price difference was minimal, I decided to buy a Lightscribe capable DVD burner. Now, back in Italy, while I'm involved in preparing vacation's slide-shows and and videos, I decided to burn my first Lightscribe label using Ubuntu and the EEEPC.
There are plenty of tutorials on the 'net about installing Lightscribe software, I based myself on this tutorial from Ubuntu community. First I downloaded Lightscribe system software and labelling software deb packages from the following links:
then I installed them with the dpkg command (you can do it also by double-clicking on the files)
sudo dpkg --install lightscribe-126.96.36.199-linux-2.6-intel.debsudo dpkg --install lightscribeApplications-188.8.131.52-linux-2.6-intel.debsudo dpkg --install 4l_1.0-r6_i386.deb
