Autoplaying DVDs, Hal, kde, dbus etc

I've been trying to get a dvd to autoplay but nothing I've tried seems to work. I have a 'dvd' script that starts up mplayer with correct parameters, so I normally just use a link to it or type in console. Works fine.

But when I try to point kde to it as an action to do when inserting a DVD Video it complains that 'a folder was found when a file was expected'.

I've tried using full path, putting 'bash' in front of it but no go. I also tried playing withe the .desktop file with same results.

Has anyone found out how to do this yet?

Works great. Many thanks. A non gnome or kde dependent volume manager! Need more s/w like this imo.
