If you downloaded the .deb version, just double click and click install...

EDIT
Or to do with terminal
Type:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i Ā«filenameĀ»

The two packages have to be installed in the proper order for the software to work.

Check the HP website for the install sequence, uninstall what you have and reinstall in the order specified and see if it works.

It's been a long time since I used lightscribe, but I have a hazy recollection that it involved the terminal and sudo.
Perhaps you could try that?

hth!

For those with 64 bit Linux Mint systems:

1) get lightscribe-1.18.18.1-linux-2.6-intel.deb from www.lightscribe.com

2) Use google to locate 4l_1.0-r6_i386.deb

3)
sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i lightscribe-1.18.18.1-linux-2.6-intel.deb
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/liblightscribe.so.1 /usr/lib32/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/liblightscribe.so /usr/lib32/
sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i 4l_1.0-r6_i386.deb
sudo ldconfig

You can probably use a later version of 4L deb package if you can find it.

Please note that LaCie 4L binary is called 4L-gui i.e. note the capital L.

Works like a charm on Linux Mint 9 KDE.
