       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
	      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.

       --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
	      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
       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.)
