creating a new group for CDRW


Hello, many moons ago I installed a CDRW and have never had a problem with it. X-CD Roast always uses root to access the device. I now have need (or want) to play audo CD's (and/or rip audo CD's). I opened up /etc/group to add my user name to the CDRW group and lo and behold there is no CDRW group! I would like to add a new CDRW group and associate my /dev/CDRW to it, then I would like to add my user to the group. How do I add a new group and associate a device to it?


EDIT: scatch that. as a test I chmoded /dev/cdrw (which is a symlink) and /dev/scd1 both to 777 and I still get an error with kaudiocreator. It doesn't tell me what the error is, it just says "unknown error /dev/cdrw" I do get a track list from the cd, so that much is working. Why can't it rip?


Jim

the tool for creating groups (console) is groupadd, usually found in /usr/sbin/groupadd

check "man groupadd" (w/o quotes)

The cdrom group is exactly for that. Also, if you've configured the cdrecord binaries to allow non-root users to burn a cd, adding a user to the cdrom group will take care of that as well. Use 'dpkg-reconfigure cdrecord' if you want to change the settings.

I've not used kaudiocreator, so I can't really advise on that.
