Well I can go ahead and try all this, but what exactly am I doing??? What's this xhost stuff all about?
PS. This does result in NOT getting the message "Connection to ":0.0" refused", but I still can't run xcdroast w/out getting the message:
Failed to scan the SCSI-bus. Either no permission to access the generic scsi devices or no SCSI support enaled in the kernel. For ATAPI devices you have to install SCSI-emulation first. Please see the CD-Writing-HOWTO how to do that.
I have read through the cdwriting howto, but I get to a point where I am expected to get some kind of positive response from cdrecord -scanbus, in which I get the message that there is no target found.
Slowly but surely, I am on my way to burning!!
