Unhappy K3b

This is the error I get when I start K3B. I downloaded the package and saved it to my folder in home. how do I insall it.

Unable to find cdrdao executable
K3b uses cdrdao to actually write CDs.
Solution: Install the cdrdao package.

This what I get run I run apt get.

root@ubuntu:/ # apt-get cdrdao-1.2.0.tar.gz
E: Invalid operation cdrdao-1.2.0.tar.gz
root@ubuntu:/ #

This is what I get with RPM

root@ubuntu:/ # < rpm install cdrdao-1.2.0.tar.gz
bash: rpm: No such file or directory
root@ubuntu:/ #

What am doning wrong

If using Ubuntu, then do
#apt-get install k3b

You have to tell apt-get what you want to do with the package.

apt-get cdrdao
Will not work, you have to tell it to INSTALL.
apt-get install cdrdao
Or do as the above post said, and do
apt-get install k3b
And that will install k3b along with any dependencies.


If you are using UBUNTU and not KUBUNTU, I've found that when you install k3b it doesn't automatically install cdrdao - I had to install it seperately (I use Synaptic).
