    Default K3b doesn't recognize cdrom drive


    I have 2 drives: reader and burner. Since new installation of 11.1, K3b
    doesn't recognise the reader. Any ideas?

    It's an old issue. in YaST-->>User and Group management add yourself to
    cdrom and disk group.
    Logout and login back.

    Thank you! It's ok now.
    Being a newbie, that issue was so old that I didn't know it!

    Here is 'the relevant bug report'
    (https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=408252#c68). The linked
    comment contains a patch that will be released via online update
    shortly.

    Adding yourself to the disk group is a workaround but is unsafe as it
    bypasses security - you should revert that change if you manually apply
    the patch from the BR or when the online update comes out.

    Another way around this problem is to logout, login as root, open K3b
    (which will then probe the second drive) and then logout as root, log
    back in as user and see if it remembers the drive (it did for me)

    Indeed you have to be a member of the disk-group. But there's also this:
    In your advanced systemsettings you find k3bSetup. Run it once and
    permissions will be set as required.

    Spoke too soon, it reverts back after a restart.

    How do I change permissions for the drive in K3B in 10.3? I open up K3B
    configuration and don't see a way of doing so.

    Thank you..
