[SOVED] App to print out labels

Is there any app in the repos that can print out labels, e.g., Avery address labels? I prefer not to use LibreOffice, and it doesn't appear that AbiWord supports label printing.

Re: [SOVED] App to print out labels

Ron,

There's an application called glabels...g = Gnome. I just installed it (out of curiosity) using...

sudo apt-get install glabels --no-install-recommends

After installing it, I opened it up (took it a moment to open). If you click "New File", another window opens up allowing you to choose from tons of predefined label products. Avery is what appeared as the default, but there are MANY more. Now...I haven't tested it to see if it works well or not, because I don't have a printer (or any labels) with me right now. Here's the output from the installation...look it over and see if you want to try it.

dan@miyolinux:~$ sudo apt-get install glabels --no-install-recommends

Thanks MiyoLinux. I'm testing it out now.

EDIT
It works great. It's now my go-to app for label printing.
