K3b


I installed the latest version of K3B and everything looked like it went correctly. However i don't know how to start the program. I tried typing "k3b" in the "run application" window, but now luck. I also tried the "locate k3b" command and it found some stuff but i don't know what i need to run.

most likely (I'm using mandrake 9.1), you'll want to use the k3b in /usr/bin

Sometimes it helps to run the menu setup stuff in control center, because mandrake doesn't always insert a link on it's own in your taskbar menu.

you can also try whereis k3b.

bash-2.05b# whereis k3b
k3b: /opt/kde/bin/k3b

I compiled it from source and that's where it put it. Just another place you can look.

Ok cool, i found it in /usr/local/kde/bin, however when i open it, it gives me a message saying "cdrdao does not run with root privileges, It is highly recommended to configure cdrdao to run with root privileges to increase the overall stability of the burning process.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem". I tried to run this K3bsetup thing but you can either open it with gedit, run it in the terminal (which just pops the terminal up real quick and closes it out) or cancel. How can i get this to run with root privileges?

Hit OK to clear the error. Then in K3B, click settings...K3B setup. Type in your root password and hit enter. It opens up a window...just click Apply then OK. Close K3B and reopen it and you shouldn't get any errors.

Thanks for the help guys. I got it working, though I took a slightly different route. I reinstalled the app while logged in as me (i think i was in as root before). that seem to do the trick. I'm getting this linux stuff slowly but surely!
