xcdroast - graphical frontend to create or copy CDs.

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.
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.
Sets the directory where X-CD-Roast should look for the config
files. By default this is set to $HOME/.xcdroast.
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
-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.
Use the designated X display.
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
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.)
