Recent K3b update

The most recent update (to 1.7 something, I think) renders the application useless - it opens in a sleeping state and cannot be used. I have uninstalled it and installed the earlier kde3 version, which works fine.

thanks for that I was just about to d/l the update

After having several recording failures with the KDE-4 Version of K3B I gave up on it and out of desperation downloaded Brasero. Though it’s for Gnome it works just fine with KDE and will finalize DVD’s properly unlike K3B. However sometimes you will need to input your root password to mount some recordable media’s. So you might wish to try it instead.
