Since I built my new computer a few months back, and installed Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft, I have only been able to burn using sudo. My old machine burned fine without sudo, so I was guessing it was because I’m using a SATA DVD-RW drive.
I found this tip on the Ubuntu forums and it fixed my burning problem – Gnomebaker has no problem working as a normal user after applying this fix.
As root (or in a terminal type:
sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/15-local.rules This will create a new file called 15-local.rules. Add a new rule in the file:
# SCSI devices<br />
BUS=="scsi", KERNEL=="sg[0-9]", NAME="%k", GROUP="cdrom"
In a terminal type the following (hit enter after each):
sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/cdrecord<br />
sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/cdrecord.mmap<br />
sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/X11/cdrecord.mmap<br />
sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/cdrdao<br />
sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/X11/cdrdao
That should fix it, especially if you’re running Gnomebaker. If you’re running K3B, run K3Bsetup and hit the above link for more if you’re a KDE user.
Thanks to wilko on the Ubuntu Forums for posting this fix.
