If you don't have KDE installed, the following script worked for me. (Now that
I installed KDE, k3b is much easier, especially if you have a CD player that
supports CD-Text.)


for i in ./*.flac; do flac -d $i -o ${i//flac/wav}; sox \
${i//flac/wav} ${i//flac/cdr}; rm ${i//flac/wav}; done

cdrecord -v speed=10 dev=/dev/hdc driveropts=burnfree -dao -pad -overburn
-audio ./*.cdr

rm *.cdr
