audiocd:/ in Konqueror
Using Suse 8.1.
When I'm logged in as root, viewing audio cds through Konqueror using audiocd:/ works fine. When logged in as a user it just won't show them. I've added the user to group 'disk' as instructed; I've tried audiocd:/?device=/dev/sr0 (it's a CDRW using SCSI emulation) but it won't recognise it:
"An error occured while loading audiocd:/?device=/dev/sr0::

The file or directory / does not exist."

I can play them fine using KsCD as a user. I'm guessing it's a security problem but I don't know what.

Has anyone got any ideas? Thanks

I have the same problem, except it doesn't work in root or user.

Ok, managed to resolve it myself. Here's the solution for snocked, twan and anyone else who might be interested.

Given that it would work with root but not <user> I figured it had to be a permissions problem or some other security thing.

Opened a shell and in /dev/ ls -l sr0 to see what the permissions where. These where fine - owned by <user> group disk with appropriate permissions.

ls -l sg0 gave owned by root group disk with appropriate permissions. This seemed ok - <user> was a member of group disk.

Stumped I turned to the net: someone has posted about changing owner to <user> so I tried that. now sg0 is owned by <user> with appropriate permissions (rw).

Bingo!! It works now.

Not sure why it wouldn't work with the group disk (it had r permission only set)?
Not sure why need to modify device sg0? The guy who posted the answer (Patrick - kudos) merely states that sgx are to do with audio cd things.

Anyway it works - I'll worry about why later on.
