How is writing or sending files to CD accomplished in Mandriva Linux


How do you send files, save or other wise write to CD using Mandriva Linux? On windows you get a helper menu. Linux does not offer this option in it's helper file and you can't click and drag a file in the CD folder. The dialog box reads "you do not have permission to write to this folder" when I try to drag it in and I can't change the permission signed in as Root.I don't have a clue. I wish Linux Questions would add a emotioncon that has the expression " what the hell buddy? are you on ten hits of acid? I mean seriously, the ones provided are not worth a dam.

What CD burner are you using?
Try K3B, Brasero or Infrarecorder.
First two recommended.
This may solve your problem entirely

Gnome has something like what you are describing but (a) I don't remember what/where it is. and (b) I don't like/use Gnome.

k3b does everything I need---and more:
  • Put a blank CD in the drive
  • Dialog appears offering the option to burn the CD
  • Drag the files to the Window
  • push the "burn" button

(If you want something to work "like Windows", then use Windows.)

The buzz is gone

After coming down off those ten hits of acid I was talking about I actually used the Mandriva help files and found a solution. You have to down load the files to the CD/DVD creator file and than supposedly you can burn them to CD from this particular file interface.This is located in the places menu. I'm on XP right now so I haven't tried it. I had some files on a CD that were put on there with it so I wanted to take them off because I was still getting flack from the dialog boxed about my disc being un writable. It would be nice if the distro creators just left the dialog boxes empty if they really don't mean anything.You would just be acknowledged that the process didn't work and that would be that. Thanks for the K what ever program advice. I had the non Gnome GUI on at one time but I'm at the age where they ran all the original Bat man shows after school so the K this or that is too much. I've already been introduced to the Bat car, Bat Gloves, Bat cuffs etc. I use windows as an example because most people are familiar with it.If CD burning goes the why the help files indicate, it's in line with XP.
Thanks for the replies!

My system uses Brasero; I believe nautilus also has a program bult-in.
And I could not agree with you more on KDE; although I will always give it (KDE) and it's programs (K---) a chance. Personally, I will use what the users say is best, because that what I am.
I actually have never tried K3b, but it receives amazingly high praises from it's users, and I am hard-pressed to try it. But for now I have never had a problem with Brasero or Infrarecorder.
As for "like Windows," pixellany is very correct. Linux isn't Windows; however if you're willing to adapt a little bit, you'll begin to use Windows and ask why it can't be "like Linux?"
And acid is not good for you, lol.
Hope you get your problem solved.

Is linux a Chevy or a Ford? Can't we all be right?

I realize that the Legacy O.S has enemies because of its status as the incumbent but I don't think it has much to do with GUIs. We are not obviously thinking as programmers as we point and click. The main problem I have with Micro$oft is that you don't get a recovery disc anymore which is a load of crap. Oh ya, the crashes and the security.That's right! The only virus I had with XP in four years is after a clean install. It was a buffer overload type because I couldnt get any of the Hotfixes from their site without having Firefox before getting a virus. I tried with IE but without the the hotfixes I couldn't get to their site without getting a virus first. I had a moron that thought that they knew about computers because they could load a operating system on build my computer and I had to fix the mess that they left. I purchased a legit copy of XP for two fifty which was cheaper because it didn't have a SP on it.That's where my alias comes from. the (Knowledgebase) Stockpiler is the technical term for hotfix which you have to be in love with if all you can do is point and click. I actually got XP to work okay after the original build with some crazy hotfixes I got from a hacker site. XP wouldn't shut down and had a plethora of other problems. So I have an extra affection for hot fixes. A sense of humor is the best thing that you can develop if you are a computer enthusiast. Do you know the reason why Linux is so secure and you don't need an anti virus program? It's because not even the root user can get a program to work so how is a hacker going to be able to do it? Maybe the hackers figure that you have it bad as it is so they leave us alone on a Linux disto? Linux is like a fortress and Windows is like a shack as far as I'm concerned but you do get a little twisted after you read some of the install files (a person?) expects someone else to be able to decipher.I'm not positive but I think you can only run a KDE program on a KDE desktop? For the record I'm not into Camaros or Mustangs.I'm rewarding you with a thumbs up just for the emotioncon.I wonder how many hours it will take to figure out how to copy it? Thanks for the input.

It says a lot that I don't even associate with the Bat Mobile anymore. Bat Car? If I'm not on acid I might as well be.I did realize my error ( a week later) which means that I'm partially competent though. But not completely by a margin of a week.

"Jingle Bells
Batman Smells
Robin Laid an Egg
The Batmobile Lost a Wheel
And Joker got away." In a way I'm not mature enough to use KDE because of the "K" thing. They must be poking fun at themselves. It has to be a challenge to think of that many acronyms that start with a K. I don't think I could do it! I think that besides for learning computers should not be taken seriously at this point. If you had to work for a call center wouldn't you by far choose to have printer customers contact you? " After it tried to print fifty sheets at the same instant and caught on fire, what happened after that? Did the low toner menu appear?" Some day I plan on using KDE again but I can't get three O.S on my computer. The installation always fails for real. I've searched on the net but there isn't much out there on the subject. I wish LQ could entice the community to write some needed tutorials. I figured out how to burn with Mandriva but I think you mean you can use K3B on Gnome.Thanks for the info.

Yeah. IMHO k3b runs faster on gnome than kde, but thats only my experience
