rhythmbox 3.4.1 does not recognize audio-cd and no ripping possible

Bug Description

Insert a audio cd. Nothing happens in rhythmbox.
But: in nautilus the audio-cd appears in the right panel and a button on the right for opening in rhythmbox.
Pressing this button opens the audio-cd in rhythmbox with tagging.
But no ripping is possible ?
In older versions the audio-cd was opened directly in rhythmbox and there where options
for ripping.

report on 17.10 and rhythmbox 3.4.1

Audio CD should appear under "Other Sources" in the left pane.

Enable "Preferences -> View -> Show Source Toolbar" to see ripping options. ( This option is not persistent across rhythmbox restarts, which it should be )

Thanks !
it is working now.
IMHO: from an end-user point of view, this option is very very hidden
and should be enabled by default.

That this option is not persistent is a bug (open ?)

This is not a bug in rhythmbox code. It is in "alternative-toolbar" plugin which was included by default and enabled in Ubuntu. You can file a bug for the plugin at

Added a more discoverable button to the headerbar - this should resolve this.
