I am only reporting what the author says. I installed K3b from apt-get. When I
tried to use it, I got this message. After being told that I should run K3b
as user, I switched to user, but as soon as I tried to run it as user, I got
the author's admonition again. So, to be on the safe side, I'm going to stick
with his recommendation.
