    k3b keeps causing a notification for "Extra packages"

    I just loaded up Kubuntu from the 12.04 LTS desktop DVD media in order to use k3b for Blu-ray data burns with cdrtools.

    k3b keeps causing a notification for "Extra packages" -- even though the packages in the notificaiton have already been installed.
    I burned one disk successfully and k3b can no longer detect media in the burn menu.
    If I use the media info menu item it sees a blank disk just fine.


    It would really be great if I could get some of this to work :/

    Install kubuntu-restricted-extras and the notifications will disappear. Note that this package includes some things like add-ons for K3b that are not contained in ubuntu-restricted-extras.

    For me, I installed the extras and I still got hassled, so I just right clicked the notification and told it not to warn me anymore... solved the issue.

    I installed the extra-restricted packages, and never had an option to not remind me. Went back to MATE and am using something else.
