Summary: KDE does not play audio cds in amarok or rhythmbox,
only in kaffeine
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.4
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: Linux
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE4 Workspace
AssignedTo: kde-maintainers@xxxxxxx

Blocker: ---

I did a fresh install of 11.4-x86_64 on a FSC Esprimo m9400 notebook to convert
some of my audio cds to flac files using rhythmbox.

At first I tried a KDE desktop.
Inserting the audio cd was recognized, and a popup offered to open it in either
amarok or kaffeine.
Choosing amarok did not show any audio cd content, only some webradio or
Choosing kaffeine finally played the audio cd.
Starting rhythmbox did not show the auiocd either.

Later I reinstalled the partition with GNOME.
Here the audio cd was recognized right away.
rhythmbox showed the cd and I was able to convert it to flac.

Today I tried the audio cd in an existing 11.4 KDE installation on a Dell
Optiplex desktop system.
Again neither rhythmbox nor amarok showed the audio cd, only kaffeine was able
to play it.

Appearently something is wrong with KDEs audio cd handling.

(I tried the 11.3 KDE partition on the Dell Optiplex and kscd, kaffeine and
amarok were able to play the audio cd).
