Re:[SOLVED] k3b: no optical device found

Running current Sid.
k3b always worked but since the last upgrade cannot find any optical device.
Hal and udisks are installed.
The device is /dev/sr0 and wodim runs and finds it just fine.
User is part of cdrom group.
/dev/sr0 lists cdrom as its group.
listdevmapper is installed.

Anyone have a clue what might cause this?

per http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=260&t=117063 you need to install udisks2. It used to be that k3b needed hal and udisks. Who knows why and how this changed in this upgrade. In any case installing udisks2 solves the problem.

I don't think it correct that udisks2 does not show up in the dependencies of k3b. I do not run KDE but only install k3b, konsole and kwrite.

Am I the only one that runs it this way? Submitting the bugreport is left as an exercise for the student ;-)
