Is there any good program for printing CD jewel case labels, which:

  • automatically fetches the track titles from freedb or similar cdda database
  • allows to customize layout (background color, element placement, size of the images).

On Windows there is CDRLabel (tried to run this using wine, but hangs during accessing the freedb).

I've already tried: kover, disc-over, glabel and cd-circleprint.

Have you tried Brasero? – RolandiXor Jun 24 '11 at 16:29
@War Brasero can (it has a cover designer). – RolandiXor Jul 22 '11 at 5:10
@Roland, I finally found it under Brasero's Tools menu...guess I learned something new. – Christopher Kyle Horton Jul 22 '11 at 16:26
@War I guess so. – RolandiXor Jul 22 '11 at 17:23
@Roland Forgot to should probably post your Brasero suggestion as an answer. – Christopher Kyle Horton Jul 23 '11 at 3:42

You can use Brasero for this by going to tools->cover editor.

Optionally you can install glabels 3.x from source (it's available on the glabels home page), or try making something custom in the GIMP.

Unfortunately none of these pull in data from the CDs afaik. You can report this as a wishlist bug against brasero, however.
