Re: [SLE] Konqueror Audio CD Browser Not Working

My problem isn't ejecting CDs. It is getting Konqueror's Audio CD Browser working. I do not have 9.1, but I would love to get this working as it is my understanding that one can rip straight from this browswer. My Audio CD Browser ALWAYS (from the time I log in) gives the error "Protocol not supported" "audiocd". Any help in fixing this would be appreciated.

I am sorry about the confusion I caused in talking about mounting CDs. However, I cannot even play a CD from any application whatsoever. This used to work before I installed KDE3.2.2. This seems to be the only thing that does not work.

First off, you don't mount audio cd's. You just stick them in and play them,
so it is normal that you can't mount an audio cd.

Second, the error you get when you eject a cd is likely because a process
still has control of the cdrom. You can only eject devices that aren't in
use. This happened to me last month, and it took me awhile to debug it.

Konqi has a habit of holding on the cdroms even after you are done with it, so
as far as eject is concerned, it is still being used. KDE also has some
problems with dead kio_auio slaves being left around. There are already bug
reports for these, but please feel free to go vote for them. :-)

I have attached two scripts to solve the eject problem. Install instructions
are inside each script.

As far as copying audio cd's goes, I haven't tried it, but you generally need
to use ripping software (gRip?). Also, FWIW, on KDE cvs-digest, K3B seems to
have some problems with faulty cdroms when it comes to audio cd's.

Hope this helps.
