Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I start KsCD it appears to not start, or start and close VERY quickly. During the entire session, it will display nothing. Then when the computer is restarted and KDE restarts you can read the message of cdrom permsission error. It asks to make sure that I have read permissions for /mnt/cdrom. Fairly certain I do...
There is a config file which needs tweaking...
I used kwrite to change things in the General section.
After you make these changes, and if you have kscd already running, you need to use the command: ps -ax to find it and kill it. Then put a cd in and see if it starts ok.
At this time I have read Tinksters new post, and lo and behold! My fear was confirmed, running KsCD from the command line tells me that it is in fact running, I just cannot see it in the GUI.
Continueing to investigate Homey's post...
Homey's post helped, KsCD now opens and attempts to play the CD. One last problem I can't figure out. In ~/.kde/share/config/kscdrc the volume field is 40, like in your example. I still have no volume and cannot find the adjustment in KsCD.
