I was burning a DVD last night, started before midnight, then finished sometime after midnight.
The elapsed time was miscalculated by a day once midnight was reached. The displayed
time went from 7 minutes to 1 day 7 minutes. This is a very minor bug, but I thought I would
mention it. Apologies if this is not the right place to post this, and please tell me where
I should post bug reports. Thanks for K3B ...

Personally I do not see any problems. At me the program is started without mistakes. Hm... Very strange!

Gnome + K3b + K3bsetup2 Fix
Like many here I was having a problem with k3bsetup not working right under Gnome (they should fix this btw). Here is how to set the premissions manually (ripped from somewhere):

The output of

Code:

ls -l /usr/bin/cdr*

should look like that :

Quote:

-rwsr-xr-- 1 root cdrom 564332 2006-08-15 20:45 /usr/bin/cdrdao

-rwsr-xr-- 1 root cdrom 133 2006-01-07 13:43 /usr/bin/cdrecord

-rwsr-xr-- 1 root cdrom 323540 2006-01-07 13:44 /usr/bin/cdrecord.mmap

-rwsr-xr-- 1 root cdrom 323540 2006-01-07 13:44 /usr/bin/cdrecord.shm

So all of those for must be owned by root and member of "cdrom" group. Plus they must be set as "SUID" (the "s" in the permissions).

If it doesn't look like that, you can fix it in 2 steps (in that order).

Run both commands as root :

1) Ownership

Code:

chown root:cdrom /usr/bin/cdr*

2) Permissions

Code:

chmod 4754 /usr/bin/cdr*

3) Verify with

Code:

ls -l /usr/bin/cdr*

4) Don't forget to add your user to the cdrom group, and remember that you have to log out and back in for group additions to take place.

that everything has been setup right.

Now it should work.

Ripping MP3's
I'm ripping my Cd's into Mp3s, and for some reason it's taking a really long time. I'm not sure how to change it.
Thanks for the help.

K3b Setup
- I copy the file as instructed:

cp /usr/share/applnk/Settings/System/k3bsetup2.desktop

"/usr/share/applnk-mdk/Applications/Archiving/Cd burning"

Run the command for k3bsetup:

kcmshell k3bsetup2 k3bsetup

- And get errors:

kcontrol: ERROR: Module k3bsetup2 not found!

kcmshell: WARNING: Module Applications/Archiving/Cd

burning/k3bsetup.desktop doesn't specify a library!

- A messagebox appears:

There was an error loading module:

Applications/Archiving/Cd burning/k3bsetup.desktop

The dignostic is: (n/a)

- I press ok and Settings - KDE control module window appars

with a k3bsetup tab but i can only press ok or cancel and

nothing appears.

Help :(

Re: K3b Setup?
silly solution, but I copied the k3bsetup2.desktop to
another place in the KDE-menu and the it worked.

in my case (Mandrake 9.1, KDE3.1.0):

cp /usr/share/applnk/Settings/System/k3bsetup2.desktop
"/usr/share/applnk-mdk/Applications/Archiving/Cd
burning"

now I can launch it from the menu under
Applications/Archiving/Cd burning

Hi, I'm also having some difficulties running k3bsetup. Opening k3bsetup from the settings menu doesn't work, and when i run "kcmshell k3bsetup2" as root it utputs the following:

$kcmshell k3bsetup2
kbuildsycoca running...
kcontrol: ERROR: Module k3bsetup2 not found!
QMutex::unlock: unlock from different thread than locker
was locked by 0, unlock attempt from 16384
$Mutex destroy failure: Device or resource busy

I compiled k3b 0.10.3 from source using --prefix=/usr on a Mandrake 9.1 system. The configure script had "Compile K3bSetup 2: yes", yet I can't seem to run it. Any ideas where my problem could lie?

Re: K3b Setup?
no, it won't increase performance, but increases the
stability of the burn process. On many systems burning
fails if cdrecord does not run with root privs. But if it works
for you.... great. :)
