help with gtoaster


I've been working with this for about a week and I just can't get it. I have gtoaster 1.0beta6 running on RH9/gnome.
I have the "run program" on my toolbar and when I launch gtoaster from there the "clear disk" and "record" buttons are sending commands to my drive because it opens and the output window shows activity.
The on-line tutorial I read said to use the drop-and -drag feature to test audio files but when I try I get "filter program for .mp3 could not be found..." and has a link. This message also comes up if I try to record.
If I open gtoaster from usr/bin/gtoaster-root it allows the drop-n-play to work but the "clear disk" and "record" buttons are not sending commands to the drive.
I have mpg123 installed in usr/local/bin and it works with xmms and with gtoaster only if I open it from usr/bin/gtoaster-root. (there is also gtoaster there but I think that's the shortcut for the launcher)
I'm thinking that gtoast needs mpg123 installed in another place but where? I tried to copy/paste but it dosen't work so I guess I'll read up on how to move it via command line.

I'm really just interested in burning audio at this time. I also removed gtoaster and re-installed it but I get the same thing.

sorry so long...

This is what I get:
[root@BLACKCODE hoffman]# cdrecord -scanbus

I'll read up and try it at the command line but I'd really like to get a gui burner working.
Thanks for the help.

If you run your clicky-clicky app from an x terminal, you can see all the error messages. When you get the app configured correctly, you can run it from the icon/menu.
