HERE is a link to the lightscribe downloads page for linux. The Lightscribe System Software needs to be installed before any labeling application is. As you follow the links, make sure you grab .deb packages and not rpm packages. If you installed the Label application prior to the system software, you will probably need to completely remove both of them and reinstall in the correct order.

HERE is a link to an Ubuntu tutorial to enable lightscribe labeling. It has links to the above Lightscribe System Software and the Simple Labeling Application. It also has a link to the LaCie labeling application, which I use more than lightscribe simple labeler.
