Hi, ALL,
I never looked at this topic before, so please forgive for such stupid question...

How do I enable CD/DVD-ROM drive?
I need to burn some stuff on CD, but apparently the device is not mounted....

Thank you.

Hi, DONAHUE,
Using KDE 3.5.10 and GNOME 2.

Take you pick. ;-)

Thank you.

gnome app[lications->sound and video->brasero disc burner works great

if you have a cd and/or dvd line in /etc/fstab get rid of it

OK, I do have a line in /etc/fstab.
Under KDE I tried to run brasero.

I chose the "data project", add my files, and clkcked burn.
There was no burning. Instead it saved the files in to the brasero.0.<smth> file on the hd.

Do I need to remove the line and reboot into GNOME and try it?

Thank you.

DONAHUE,
I commented out the line in /etc/fstab, but it didn't help.

I tried to reboot, but it didn't help either.

Running "Brasero" and selecting "Burn Image" "Select a disk to write to" is disabled (greyed out).
And there is no mounting of the CD_ROM device. Checked with the "mount" command.

Code:

igor@LearningRight ~ $ mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on / type ext3 (rw,noatime,errors=continue,barrier=1,data=writeback)
devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,relatime,size=1007856k,nr_inodes=251964,mode=755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,mode=755)
rc-svcdir on /lib64/rc/init.d type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,size=1024k,mode=755)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
cgroup_root on /sys/fs/cgroup type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,size=10240k,mode=755)
cpuset on /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuset type cgroup (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,cpuset)
cpu on /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu type cgroup (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,cpu)
cpuacct on /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuacct type cgroup (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,cpuacct)
freezer on /sys/fs/cgroup/freezer type cgroup (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,freezer)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620)
shm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)


Any other idea?

Thank you.

gnome: if you insert a blank disk do you get a dialog, "Blank CD-R Disk", on the desktop? will not appear in mount.
If you insert a previously written cd do you get an icon on desktop? will appear in mount .

kernel config:
Quote:
File systems --->
CD-ROM/DVD Filesystems --->
<*> ISO 9660 CDROM file system support
[*] Microsoft Joliet CDROM extensions
[*] Transparent decompression extension
<*> UDF file system support


Does
Code:
emerge info
show: USE=dbus consolekit policykit udev udisks upower ?
Does
Code:
rc-update show
show dbus consolekit udev udev-mount?

DONAHUE,
I added necessary services to rc-update, but "Brasero" stiil does not see the drive.
Maybe I'm missing the writing capabilities USE-falg, if there is one?

Thank you.

gnome: if you insert a blank disk do you get a dialog, "Blank CD-R Disk", on the desktop? will not appear in mount.
If you insert a previously written cd do you get an icon on desktop? will appear in mount .
did any of this happen?
reboot or restart gnome
if you have a .iso file handy right click should offer to open with brasero.
if you are using a regular user what groups is he in? optical
My use flags are provided by the desktop/gnome profile -- plus USE="apache2 bindist gd mmx sse sse2 -pulseaudio" none of which should matter to cd writing

DONAHUE,
There is no reaction on the blank CD.
But inserting the Gentoo installation CD work fine.

Does this mean it's a hardware?

Thank you.

Code:
emerge brasero
reboot
responding to an existing written disk but not with brasero to a blank disk, suggests brasero may not have picked up some changes
have you been able to create an image of the files you want to record? brasero-0.iso by default my use flags
Code:
equery uses brasero
[ Legend : U - final flag setting for installation]
[        : I - package is installed with flag     ]
[ Colors : set, unset                             ]
 * Found these USE flags for app-cdr/brasero-2.32.1-r1:
 U I
 + + cdr           : Adds support for CD writer hardware
 + + css           : Enables reading of encrypted DVDs
 - - doc           : Adds extra documentation (API, Javadoc, etc). It is
                     recommended to enable per package instead of globally
 + + dvd           : Adds support for DVDs
 + + introspection : Adds support for GObject based introspection
 + + libburn       : Enable dev-libs/libburn backend
 + + nautilus      : Build the gnome-base/nautilus extension

 - - test          : Workaround to pull in packages needed to run with
                     FEATURES=test. Portage-2.1.2 handles this internally, so
                     don't set it in make.conf/package.use anymore
 - - vcd           : Video CD support

It looks like I have the same.

Maybe it's just hardware?

cdrdao scanbus

and put a blank disc in the drive and under places look for Blank CD-R Disc

if working as ordinary user you might login as root and / or add user to cdrom group which was legacy

DONAHUE,
OK, this becomes very interesting.

Code:

igor@LearningRight ~ $ groups
wheel audio cdrom video usb users igor


And still right clicking on the .iso file and selecting "Open with Brasero" gives a dialog with disabled "Select a disk to write to".

Anything else to check?

Thank you.
