Hi, I just moved over from Arch and still trying to get my first install real smooth, I have 2 things that I am sure are related. My printer is installed and works great from cups, but doesn't show as default or any printer in application print dialogs. Also at the same time my DVD doesn't get recognized by applications (like Brasero) and will only mount after I use windows in a VM to connect to the drive, I thought I had followed all instructions but it seems I must have missed something but I can't tell what it is. Hopefully it is something that somebody recognizes right off.

thanks in advance for any help you can give.

if the cd/dvd/bd is in fstab take it out
Code:
emerge --info
look for consolekit udisks upower policykit udev dbus use flags. if missing add them
Code:
emerge  consolekit udisks upower polkit udev dbus

Code:
emerge -uND world

Code:
rc-update add consolekit default
rc-update add dbus default
rc-update add udev sysinit
rc-update add udev-mount sysinit
udev should be already installed

Ok I did everything and still no go, here is my rc-update show
Code:

           alsasound | boot                         
             bootmisc | boot                         
           consolekit |      default                 
         cups-browsed |      default                 
                cupsd |      default                 
                 dbus |      default                 
                devfs |                       sysinit
                dmesg |                       sysinit
                fcron |      default                 
                 fsck | boot                         
             hostname | boot                         
              hwclock | boot

           localmount | boot                         
              modules | boot                         
             mount-ro |              shutdown       
                 mtab | boot                         
               net.lo | boot                         
             netmount |      default                 
               procfs | boot                         
                 root | boot                         
            savecache |              shutdown       
                 swap | boot                         
            swapfiles | boot                         
               sysctl | boot                         
                sysfs |                       sysinit
            syslog-ng |      default                 
         termencoding | boot                         
       tmpfiles.setup | boot                         
                 udev |                       sysinit
           udev-mount |                       sysinit
              urandom | boot                         
               vmware |      default                 


The only thing that was not in here was the consolekit, but still nothing in the print dialogs or brasero for the dvd.

In gnome disks utility it does show dvd that is in the player

Is there anything else I can pull off here that might help?

thanks again for all your help

reboot, login as root, test -- if it works there is a group or two your user is not in
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-858965.html may help

Hi, I went through and did what was in the referenced document and nothing, I have not run into this problem before. I have other installs on other partitions and they are fine. Gnome disk utility sees the dvd and states what is on the dvd. The DVD is not automatically mounted but it knows it is there and what it is. Now what I have noticed is that the printer does show up in some applications, evince and firefox but it shows up as 'LPR', instead of the HP 8600 whatever which is fine, but still not showing up in all.

I appreciate any help advice, if some output is needed please lket me know.

thanks again

OK we got it and it was so simple I liked to apologize, I don't remember ever having to do this, but I ran across a post hunting here and there. This guy had the same problem, and "wait for it" added it to fstab, Sh!@#.

I just added what was below and immediately brasero saw the blank disk as far as the printing, it is odd everything sees it but "chromium" but they see it as "LPR" not the assigned designation. So I am guessing "Chromium" has some of the problem, but I can't figure out the "LPR" at this point I just know it works.

Code:

/dev/sr0        /media/dvd  auto    ro,user,noauto,unhide   0



I apologize for not thinking of that.
