glabels.  Install it via vl-qwik-picks or gslapt.  It should do the job for you.

Sorry - but I don't think it does what I had in mind (making and printing CD/DVD labels).

It will. You just have to play with it a bit in order to get things to your satisfaction.

@Locator

I had used another label creation program on a project I was working on called the MMBD (multimedia bonus disk.)  I've just now moved it into regular repo.
You should be able to download it after an update.
Here is a video I put up on youtube at the time ...(still has a little bit of MMBD promo in it.)

GTKcdlabels
Here is also a vid on gLabels.  I can seee why you did not spot the cd/dvd abilities right off.
gLabels

of course both of these are now available on Opensourcebistro.com/blog1 (the link on the regular desktop)

OK, Now what if I want to print just one label instead of two? Or suppose I want to print two different labels on the same sheet? Because as far as I can tell, it will only print two duplicate labels in the same sheet.

To print just one label ...
File-->Print--> click Labels tab, then select Labels from: radio button.
Set from: 1 to 1 (prints only top label.)
Set from: 2 to 2 (prints only bottom label.)

Have to run the same sheet through twice as far as I can tell to print two different labels on same sheet.
