Question K3b Audio CD Burning error?

Ive been trying to burn an audio disk using a CD-R with K3b and keep getting an error message.

Here is my Debug:
HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH82N KU02 (/dev/sr0, CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL) [DVD-ROM, DVD-R Sequential, DVD-R Dual Layer Sequential, DVD-R Dual Layer Jump, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW Restricted Overwrite, DVD-RW Sequential, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R Dual Layer, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW] [SAO, TAO, RAW, SAO/R96P, SAO/R96R, RAW/R16, RAW/R96P, RAW/R96R, Restricted Overwrite, Layer Jump] [%7]

K3b Version: 17.12.3
KDE Version: 5.44.0
Qt Version: 5.9.5
Kernel: 4.18.0-21-generic

Used versions
cdrecord: 1.1.11

/usr/bin/wodim: Operation not permitted. Warning: Cannot raise RLIMIT_MEMLOCK limits.
/usr/bin/wodim: Resource temporarily unavailable. Cannot get mmap for 12587008 Bytes on /dev/zero.
Text len: 738
TOC Type: 0 = CD-DA

cdrecord command:
/usr/bin/wodim -v gracetime=2 dev=/dev/sr0 speed=40 -sao driveropts=burnfree textfile=/tmp/k3b.nS2504 -useinfo -audio /tmp/k3b_audio_0_01.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_02.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_03.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_04.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_05.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_06.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_07.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_08.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_09.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_10.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_11.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_12.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_13.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_14.inf /tmp/k3b_audio_0_15.inf
What am I missing?

Also not to sound like a total newbie but this is the first time I have posted to a forum for linux so any pointers are appreciated.

I haven't used K3B for a decade or so.
Ive been trying to burn an audio disk using a CD-R with K3b
/usr/bin/wodim -v gracetime=2 dev=/dev/sr0 speed=40 -sao driveropts=burnfree textfile=/tmp/k3b.nS2504 -useinfo -audio
Are you sure that you can burn at speed=40?

From my notes I have, for a dir of .wav files.
cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 speed=8 -audio -pad *.wav
I think that you can dry run that to test. So that you don't waste a bunch of optical media. -dummy

Something like
cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 speed=8 -audio -pad -dummy <files>
As far as I know, you can't make an .iso out of files to burn to an audio CD later. It's tracks, not a file system.

I think that cdparanoia will copy tracks. Then you can use those tracks to make a audio CD.
pacman -Si cdparanoia
Name            : cdparanoia
Version         : 10.2-7
Description     : Compact Disc Digital Audio extraction tool

URL             :

Depends On      : glibc

Download Size   : 68.48 KiB
Installed Size  : 175.00 KiB
I think that cdrdao can do that too.
pacman -Si cdrdao
Name            : cdrdao
Version         : 1.2.4-1
Description     : Records audio/data CD-Rs in disk-at-once (DAO) mode

URL             :

Depends On      : gcc-libs  lame  libmad  libvorbis  libao

Thanks for the reply teckk!

I used your suggestions to do some more research, turns out its a bug with Ubuntu 18.04 but I did find a work around for it.
Here it is:

sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/cdrdao
sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/wodim
sudo chmod 0755 /usr/bin/growisofs
