How to remove CD Player auto startup


When I put in a CD, the CD Player program starts. I don't want that, but cannot find how to switch it off. In the tools options there are only a checkbox about autostarting to play when the program starts, and that is not checked. But I don't want the program to start.

Any tips?

it depends on which window manager you use.
in gnome, if you go to Desktop Preferences, there is an entry there for
removable drives and media, you can select if you want a program to automatically start when you put in a cd there.

In KDE:

Go to control center.

Peripherals --> Storage media --> Advanced --> uncheck Enable medium application autostart after mount

Thanks - I use KDE and I have peripherals, but not an entry named Storage media?

In KDE 3.3:
(Start)Menu> System> Configuration> Hardware> Removeable Storage

and you can disable autorun from there.

Works in Mandriva2005LE anyway...

Thanks - this was just what I needed - in the meanwhile I found out that it was the gnome cd-player that popped up, so I uninstalled that one. But this configuration applet also lets you see what scripts are run - so you can modify t hem if you want that - that's great (unless mandriva overwrites them again)
