cdrom permissions

Bug #341174 reported by Kim d'Audretsch
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
k3b (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

If a user isn't in the cdrom group K3b says there is no dvdrom player present! Also Brasero fails to see the player and burns an image instead. A better and more useful error would be "Permissions denied to access dvd/cdrom burner - please add user to the cdrom group". Or start a dialog screen to add the user to the cdrom group. This error is misleading since the dvd burner works fine.

No LSB modules are available.
