vl 6 mounting cdrom as a user
« on: March 30, 2009, 05:48:08 pm »
Hi, thanks so much for vl6 - brilliant.

When i insert a cd as a user, and I navigate to /media/cdrom or /media/cdrom0 i see no contents displayed in dolphin or terminal.

When I switch to root and insert the cd I can read the CD, then switch back to user and I can then access the CD rom. How can Iset up the user to be able to auto mount the cd's?

Also, under kde 4.2 when i run gslapt as a user, the hourglass appears and then disappears - no program.  I can sudo gslapt from terminal and it works OK. I thought that it used to ask for authentication when being run directly from a user.

Wph,

I don't have that problem.  I have not tried accessing the cdrom in root.  However, as user, I just click on the silver "Devices" icon near the battery icon in the bottom panel of the screen, which opens a window, then I click on the cdrom icon and the CDROM content pops up.

I don't use kde so can't comment on the other question.

you're right - under xfce it works properly - the cd icon appears and the file manager navigates to it.

Also, when starting gslapt as a user from the gui  i get the authetication dialog box

I was running kde 4.2 when i wrote about the above issues.
