cdrom permissions


Hi, I just installed fedora core 2 and i am unable to burn cds as user (I can do it as root). I belive this is because I dont have write permission to my cdrom but how can i change that? I tried just changing the permissions of the mount point with chmod but that didnt work and i tried setting umask=0 for the cdrom in fstab but no dice there either. please help!

Which CD burning program are you using? K3b, for instance, lets you burn CDs without you having to manually change to root. Its setup program takes care of all the permission issues for you.

Did you run k3bsetup? That should change all the permissions necessary to get the program working correctly.

Are you sure you didn't see any screen like this?

Oh no sorry i thought you ment "configure k3b" in the program. How did you get there? I tried a "locate k3bsetup" but it didnt turn anything up and it dosnt seem to be in the main program.

There should be "K3b setup" under the "Settings" menu. At least that's the case with the version of K3b I use (0.11.9). Alternatively you should be able to invoke "k3bsetup" independently. On my machine, it's found under /usr/bin. (My KDEDIR is /usr)

Nope its not there anywhere :-( But when looking around on google i found this in fedora core 2 relese notes:

k3b

Past users of the CD/DVD burning application k3b may notice that the program k3bsetup is missing. This is because k3bsetup is not necessary under Fedora Core 2.

gah..i cant seem to find anywhere to download it either, not even the k3b site

DOH!!!

You may want to take your problem to one of the Fedora forums. I know this is an excellent Linux forum, but you may get more effective help at a Fedora-specific place.
