ever since i upgraded to Kubuntu 10.04 the ONLY way to mount a cd or dvd is to use the Device Notifier widget. Dolphin will detect that there is a CD and will also detect the title of the CD but will not show its contents. The drive will not be listed in the mtab unless i access it with the device notifier first. I added a line to my fstab for the drive and now i can manually mount it
in the terminal if i do
then i can access the file with dolphin
sudo mount /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom
I need to at least be able to mount the drive as a user, not as root. It also be nice if the drive automounted when media is attached, as it is supposed to.
