hello i have recently installed fedora core 2 and i am impressed with it because for once there is a distro that has apps that work out of the box, like kdevelop, qtdesigner and others. every distro i tried had unstable apps or incomplete environments causing apps not to work properly. however, i have noticed a couple a quirks that have me stumped. the main problem i'm trying to solve right now is with gnome-cd-properties (i.e. main menu ->Preferences->CD And DVD). if i check the DVD (Video) check box and enter:
when a dvd is placed in the cdrom nothing happens other than gnome mounting the media and placing a cdrom icon on the desktop labeled as the movie title. if the dvd is mounted and i execute gmplayer dvd://1 from the command prompt it launches and plays the dvd as expected, so i have to come to the conclusion that for some reason the same command isn't even being executed by the gnome-cd-proerties utility. i'm trying to think logically about what's going on so i thought that maybe the automount service was running and interfering. when i launched the services utility i only noticed an entry for the autofs service that mounts file systems automatically. i stopped the service and saved my changes. i went through the whole thing again trying to see if gmplayer would start when i put a movie in the drive and it was the same result. just the mounted icon. this is strange because this didn't happen when i was using other distros, even red hat 9. has anyone else noticed this? could it be a bug with gnome 2.6?
