change k3b settings to associate the accumulation of info to somewhere else


Dear all,
long story short: I am using Deb.6 with k3b in question. When copying cd's/dvd's it directs the temporary place (one drive) to /dev/sda8 mounted on /temp but it is a partition and too small (otherwise o.k.), I want to redirect k3b to a directory in /home where there is space; howto, please.

Fred.

Hi,

Have a look here:

Code:
Settings -> Configure k3b -> Misc -> Default Temporary Directory
Hope this helps.

k3b auto temp file

Thanks, I did this but had to reboot to effect changes then ,on trying again, k3b complained that cdrecord did not have the right permissions, rebooting after shutdown still did not reproduce the desired copy; it gave a copy of parted magic that would only boot to the cli.

Hi,

Have a look at the k3b section that deals with permissions. I cannot point you to the specific location (no box with k3b installed present) but I do believe it is part of the Settings menu.

Hope this helps.

k3b auto temp file

Thanks. I have looked at the permissions section on k3b settings. K3b seems to depend on cdrecord that is owned by root and I don't want to mess with root. Would I be better off changing associations in my user profile or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Fred.

Hi,

Out of the box all this should work (assuming Debian 6 and K3b 2).

If I look at the permissions I see the following:

- cdrecord (wodim to be precise):
Code:
$ ls -l /usr/bin/wodim
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 392360 Oct 18  2010 /usr/bin/wodim

I'm not sure what you are trying to do, my first reaction would be "wrong tree".

k3b problems

Thanks, it does semm to be working now and everything appears to refer to the right places. The remaining issue is that it will only launch from the cli, which is a little annoying.

You're welcome. Nice to read that the permission problem is fixed.

Are you using Gnome or KDE?

k3b launch

As you might have guessed I'm using Gnome. K3b was installed using apt-get which, in theory, should pull in dependancies. Is it missing depenancies or something not configured correctly. Thanks.

Fred.

Hi again,

I've got access to a Debian box and did some checking on this.

After completely removing k3b and associated files I reinstalled using apt-get and synaptic package manager. Both had the same result: k3b was installed and worked as it should. The k3b icon wasn't present in both cases.

There's a chance that the k3b icon is present in the Application -> Sound & Video section, it might not be activated (it is in my case).

To check and activate: System -> Preferences -> Main Menu in the Menu's section select Sound & Video and then search for k3b in the items section: activate if it isn't.

Hope this helps.

k3b icon

Thanks for your efforts. Yes, activation from the 'main menu' worked. I can't think this is normal if you install a GUI compliant program from the CLI and why did I not think of what you suggested, numpty!

Fred.
