Running xcdroast as non-root user


Hi all, first of all thanks to all of u who write here because this is my first post, but not my first problem solved here =)

The problem I can't solve now is that everytime I launch X CD Roast I'm prompted to introduce root password to continue.

I've tried to give access to the rest of the users in the configuration window of the program, and also give permision to write in the temp folder I always use, the only folder that appears in the 'Hard disk configuration' tab

I don't know what else to try, any suggestions?

thanks a lot

Ok if you go to http://www.xcdroast.org and grab the rpm for RH7.2 when you install it instead of RH default package the problem disapears. What happens the permissions on xcdrast wrapper, cdrecord, mkisofs and other packages are not set to allow non-root users to run xcdroast. First xcdroast run must be performed as root to setup general configuration (there you can allow non-root accounts to access and use xcdroast).
