running k3b from a regular user


I am running a Slackware 9.1 system and recently installed k3b 0.10.2 but if I run it from a different user than root I have problems because cdrecord and other programs should be run by root, not by a regular user. How can I run cdrecord or any other program that is usually run by root from a regular user?

Thanks!

Run the program k3bsetup. It will make your cdwriters accessible to everyone in the group that you specify (burning). Then add yourself to that group. You can do that with
Code:
usermod -G burning USERNAME
Login again and then you should be able to burn cds.
