k3b permissions issue

hi everyone, i've been having problems with k3b in terms of simply burning cds/dvds. when i attempt to burn a cd as a regular user i get an error message that pretty much says theres a permissions issue so i tried to burn a cd as root and it would i go about changing the permissions? im currently running slackware 12.0 and using k3b 1.0.2 thanks!

Have you tried running "k3bsetup"? This is an application that automatically corrects device and program permissions so that normal users can burn discs.

Thanks a lot, that fixed the problem. A bit on the same topic, I seem to also have permission problems using Amarok when I want to add songs to my iPod or safely remove. Its more or less the same deal that I have to run Amarok as root, can you also point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it!
