K3b fout geen permissie om apparaat te gebruiken

K3B says that there's no Burning Devices or no permission

A common cause of this is the current user have no privileges for that. You can try to:

  • Add the user to the group optical (remember to re-login after this) The las thing cost me a lot of hassle because I forgot to do that...
# gpasswd -a  optical
  • Set permissions to devices
# chmod 777 /dev/dvd*
# chmod 777 /dev/cd*
  • Make sure HAL is running, because recent k3b is HAL-based. Kindly reported by arnuld@ #archlinux.
# /etc/rc.d/hal status

Or perhaps consider adding a hal entry in your /etc/rc.conf so that it automatically loads upon boot.

# /etc/rc.d/hal start
