X-CD-ROAST(1)		    General Commands Manual		 X-CD-ROAST(1)

       xcdroast	- graphical frontend to	create or copy CDs.

       xcdroast	 [-d  _debug-level_]  [-c  _config-directory_] [-l _lib-direc-
       tory_] [-o] [-n]	[-w] [-a] [-f  "_list  of  scsi-devices_"]  [--display
       _display_] [--no-xshm]

       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.

       -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

       -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 au-
	      todiskmount 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.

	      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 en-
	      abled. 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.)

       This 'man' page is to short. Really useable information can be found in
       the  documentation  included   with   X-CD-Roast,   in	the   FAQ   on     or     the     online	tutorial    on
