Angry Running Xine


Hi

I have slack9.1 installed. I can run Xine in root. I can play DVD and CD.

I can't use Xine when I am logged in as regular user.

What do I need to do to use Xine as a normal user?

Simply include yourself (as normal user into the disks group).
If you're running KDE,from K menu
system -> Kuser -> group -> add user .........and so on.
Ciao
