I've just spent the weekend upgrading FC4 to FC5 (clean install but kept /home on its own partition)and now gnome-cd player won't work.
When I try to launch it, it crashes with the following message:
The CD player is unable to run correctly.
/media/cdrecorder does not appear to point to a valid CD device. This may be because:
a) CD support is not present in your machine
b) You do not have the correct permissions to access the CD drive
c) /media/cdrecorder is not the CD drive.
Press 'Set device' to go to a dialog where you can set the device, or press 'Quit' to quit the CD player
and any attempt to use the "set device" button causes it to crash completely.
Now. Here's the funny thing. I created a new test user (TestFC5) and when I log in as him (her?) it works just fine. So clearly there is a problem in my .gnome settings for my real user (even though it worked - and still works - from the same /home partition under FC4).
I have no clue as to where to start looking for a solution.
Thanks in advance.
