This is my first blog post, ever. Seriously, I've never done this kind of thing before, not even outside of LQ, so this might not seem very "bloggy", or whatever you want to call it...

What set me off to start writing my own blog was a recent thread posted in the General section of the forums: "Learning in the Linux Community".

Seriously, any kind of study like this rings alarm bells in my head. I end up seeing it as nothing more than yet another...

KPackageKit cannot mount CDROM

Kubuntu 10.4 on HP Pavilion dv3 laptop. I bought 8 DVD software library because not on Internet at home, and cannot build the index to use this repo, because KPackageKit says Error, Cannot mount CD-ROM. KPackageKit is a tremendous disappointment all around, especially after Synaptics Package Manager was piercingly good, and has vanished.

The file managers and K3b are mounting DVDs. There is no /etc/fstab line for it.

I am VERY grateful to Linux Community.

Every once in a while I read a post that is nothing more than a google search url with the thread title entered as the query. That bothers me.

I know that there are several very experienced posters on these forums who are understandably irked when inane questions pop up. It is tempting to admonish the askers, or patronise their lack of resourcefulness. However, doing so demonstrates an attitude of, at best, carelessness regarding the thought behind the question being asked....
