Red face XcdRoast: connection to ":0.0" refused AND cdrecord -scanbus returns no target


Aloha!

I want to burn CD's but when I try to run xcdroast as root, i get this message:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

What the heck does that mean, and how do I fix it!?
Thanks!

PS: when I try cdrecord -scanbus I get:

Cdrecord 1.11a19 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
Using libscg version 'schily-0.6'
cdrecord: No target found.

Are you doing this on your own home secure network? If so, try "xhost +" and try it again. When you are done, "xhost -"

To solve this in my suse, I had to:

as normal user: xhost + localhost
as root: export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0

Well I can go ahead and try all this, but what exactly am I doing??? What's this xhost stuff all about?

PS. This does result in NOT getting the message "Connection to ":0.0" refused", but I still can't run xcdroast w/out getting the message:

Failed to scan the SCSI-bus. Either no permission to access the generic scsi devices or no SCSI support enaled in the kernel. For ATAPI devices you have to install SCSI-emulation first. Please see the CD-Writing-HOWTO how to do that.

I have read through the cdwriting howto, but I get to a point where I am expected to get some kind of positive response from cdrecord -scanbus, in which I get the message that there is no target found.


Slowly but surely, I am on my way to burning!!

The xhost thing is about the normal user allowing the root user to use his display. The root can't use by default, it has to be allowed.

The other errors, I guess, are because you don't have scsi emulation installed. A cd burner in linux has to be scsi emulated in order to work (kernel 2.6 doesn't need anymore, I guess).
Can't you use k3b to burn cd's? Try it.

welp,

I just tried to install k3b and it said that kde-config was not found!

What's kde-config, and in what directory should it be???

And how do i know if i have the QT3 library and the KDE3 libraries installed??

kde-config is a binary in this path (on my suse 9.1): file:/opt/kde3/bin

To query your rpm database, just do a
rpm -q qt3
This asks rpm if the package is installed in the system. You can do it with any package you wish to know.

Mine outputs "qt3-3.3.1-36.5"
