problems with xcdroast

Okay, I was hoping to get cd burning without making a post, but I've run into a problem that I can't seem to fix. I've read some posts on it, but nothing really makes sense to me...

I have xcdroast installed, so I tried to run it, and I got

No root configuration file found or not readable!
The superuser must start and configure X-CD-Roast
first, before other users can use it

Okay, fair enough... I'm sure everyone gets the same when they try to run it the first time with a user account...

Open up a console, type "kdesu xcdroast"

A window opens up and asks for my root password... I type her in and the window closes... Nothing else happens.

I su to root, and type "xcdroast", hoping for some information...

I get

** WARNING **: No /usr/local/bin/cdrecord installed
** WARNING **: (Invalid lib-directory? Check -l option)

Okay I think... I'm pretty sure I have cdrecord installed, but I download the latest version and install it anyways (because I'm not sure how to check what I have installed)

Now what? And be gentle...

okay, i did a bit more reading, and tried to copy my cdrecord binaries into /ust/local/lib/xcdroast-0.98/bin

So I think thats done...

Now, when i'm in the console as root and type "xcdroast' i get

** WARNING **: Failed to access cdrecord. Please check the permissions and ownership of /usr/local/lib/xcdroast-0.98/bin/cdrecord

I did type

chown root xcdrwrap
chmod 4755 xcdrwrap

Doesn't that chage the permissions?

Okay, I figured it out...
I had cdrecord in a folder /bin/cdrecord instead of just /bin...
once i figured that out the rest was fairly easy
damn i'm stupid

do i still get credit for fixcing my own problem if no one responded to the post?

Good work!

I guess you got all the credit you need ... you know you did it on your own(grin).
