I am having trouble with audio CDs in both 12.3 and 13.1 on 3 different computers. The two 13.1 installs are from scratch and the 12.3 was reinstalled with the /home directory from a previous installation.
I was trying to rip a audio CD using K3b. From the KDE notification menu it opens K3b. I click on start ripping and get the pop up, and again click start ripping. At this point K3b crashes with “segmentation error”. I tried installing k3b debug-info, but the information doesn’t change.
In the KDE notifications the CD does not get a eject icon so it cannot be ejected like a DVD from the notifications menu, but I must click on the button on the computer drive to eject the Audio CD.
Also when I open an audio CD the location bar shows
If I click on Ogg Vorbis sub folder, for example, dolphin just spins away with a “loading folder” message in the bottom right corner. Then if I click the “go up” arrow for navigating up a level to go back I get the same “loading folder” message. The back button works fine.
In the notification menu it has a listing for “play CD with Amarok”, but this just has the white generic icon, not the Amarok icon and when click nothing happens. If I go into Amarok and Local Music, the CD is listed, but always shows zero tracks.
The users are both part of the cdrom group. I am using the Packman repository with all of the installs. The only thing that I can think that would be unusual in the installs is that they include the Japanese language packages. The main language is still English.
I have search, but seem to find anything about this issue. I’m not sure what further information is necessary. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
