Re: permissions denied when using k3b
I'm curious as to if anyone has found a reasonable solution to
problems with the various gui interfaces running as a non-root user
when cdrecord is the chosen tool?
A common approach is to make cdrecord setuid root, in a special group (I
use burners often), then add selected users to the burners group. Trying
to fake the permissions on the device doesn't address other issues like
being able to lock memory and use realtime scheduling.
I've tried setting permissions on the device, setuid bit and sudo, to
no avail. cdrecord always exists because of permissions.
I confess, on an unloaded system those optimizations are usually not
needed, although on a loaded system they certainly are!
