Description:

KoverArtist is a program for the fast creation of covers for
cd/dvd cases and boxes. The main idea behind it is to be able
to create decent looking covers with some mouseclicks.

The project started from my need for some decent covers for the
films I record from television and then often burn on dvd for
archiving.

With series I usually start with one or two dvds, and add more as
more episodes are available. So the program - KoverArtist - had
to be flexible enough to handle that. This also requires changing
covers on the fly to use cases that can house more discs.

I'd been looking for something like this since I first started using Linux. I tried out the version that's in the Ubuntu repositories but it didn't do DVD cases. Thankfully, I happened to stumble across this page. The link to the "Ubuntu RPM's" (I assume you meant .deb's) is broken, but the source compiled just fine on Gutsy. Thanks for a great app! :-D

I like the application, including the format of the output files (nice format for greping). Now, the only thing I miss is "Owner" field, something that would be positioned on bottom right side of the front cover. How tough would it be add this option?

I need to print to a half-size slim DVD case. Is there a template for this, and can your create your own templates somewhere?

The case descriptions are XML and are stored in KDE's apps directory.

In my installation this is /usr/share/apps/koverartist/cases

They are called *.koac and should be understandable. There is a format description in the file FILE_FORMATS

I would be glad if you send me the case formats you create! :-)

Koverartists works like a charm for me. It really fills my need for a program to make DVD covers for my family videos collection. Thanks!

Have a look at checkinstall (apt-get able). Building a local package for yourself is as easy as "checkinstall" instead of "make install".

Be aware to modify the architecture to amd64 when checkinstall asks for modifications.

why am I unable to select the case type? There is nothing to choose from, so I'm stuck with the CD format, when I want the DVD format

Is there a way to change the default setup of koverartist? i.e. mine defaults to a standard CD case with a 'glow' for the contents text etc.
I would like it to default to a slim CD case, no glow etc.

Great package though, keep up the good work.

Is it possible to design and print CD/DVD covers with this app? With CD/DVD covers, I mean printable CD-Rs and DVD-Rs.

Unfortunately not yet.

You mean label printing, directly on the medium, or on label paper.

This requires quite some work. But it is on the TODO list, at least :)
