X-CD-ROAST(1)                                                    X-CD-ROAST(1)




NAME

       xcdroast - graphical frontend to create or copy CDs.


SYNOPSIS

       xcdroast  [-d  <debug-level>]  [-c  <config-directory>] [-l <lib-direc-
       tory>] [-o] [-n] [-w] [-a] [-f  "<list  of  scsi-devices>"]  [--display
       <display>] [--no-xshm]



DESCRIPTION

       xcdroast  is  a  program-package dedicated to easy CD creation. It com-
       bines command line tools like cdrecord, cdda2wav,  readcd  and  mkisofs
       into a graphical user interface.

       With  a  few  simple  mouse-clicks you can copy or create your own CDs,
       without long study of any command line parameters.


   OPTIONS
       -d <debug-level>
              Run X-CD-Roast in debug mode, which causes a lot of text  to  be
              output  on  the console. Set the debug-level to 10 and reproduce
              the problem to generate a useable bug-report.

       -c <config-directory>
              Sets the directory where X-CD-Roast should look for  the  config
              files. By default this is set to $HOME/.xcdroast.

       -l <lib-directory>
              Sets  the directory where X-CD-Roast should look for its library
              files (like icons, translations and sounds). By default this  is
              /usr/lib/xcdroast-0.98  or /usr/local/lib/xcdroast-0.98 (depends
              on your installation).

       -o     This disables multibyte font support. This might be  handy  when
              you  have problems to display some special characters in the on-
              screen texts. (e.g. german umlauts)

              Note: This option has no effect on GTK2 builds.

       -n     Disables the cdrtools version check  and  allows  X-CD-Roast  to
              start  when  even wrong versions of cdrecord, mkisofs, readcd or
              cdda2wav are installed. Use at own risk! This also overrides the
              forced  exit  when you don’t meet the 800x600 minimal resolution
              requirement.

       -w     Don’t use cdrecord-ProDVD, even when it is installed.  Sometimes
              it  may  be desireable to use only the free version of cdrecord.
              In this case you can disable ProDVD support here without needing
              to deinstall the ProDVD-binary.

       -a     Disable  additional scans for CD-Writers or CD-Readers. In addi-
              tion to the usual SCSI transport support (generic  scsi),  X-CD-
              Roast also supports the experimental ATA-transport of the latest
              linux kernels. If you set this option then  this  extra  support
              will be disabled.

              On  Mac  OS  X  this  option  will  disable  the  display of the
              autodiskmount daemon handling code. Useful when you  have  other
              means to handle the mount issue.

       -f "<list of scsi-devices>"
              Will not scan for devices, but force X-CD-Roast to use the given
              ones (semicolon seperated list). Most useful on AIX  or  OpenBSD
              system where scanning fails. Can be also used to use remote-SCSI
              devices. You can set these devices also within the setup menu.

       --display <display>
              Use the designated X display.

       --no-xshm
              Do not use the X Shared Memory extension. If X-CD-Roast is being
              displayed  on  a  remote  X  server,  this  probably needs to be
              enabled. Also useful for any X server that doesn’t properly sup-
              port  the X shared memory extension.  This will result in slower
              performance than with X shared memory enabled.



Multiple concurrent instances

       It is possible to start X-CD-Roast more than once  at  the  same  time.
       This  way you can write to several CD-Writers if your system can handle
       the load.

       Be sure to give each instance of X-CD-Roast own devices and don’t  scan
       for  devices  while another copy of X-CD-Roast is already running. Also
       note that writing two CDs at the same time requires  that  the  writers
       are at a own IDE bus each. (Real SCSI devices should be fine.)
