I used to use Gnome as my desktop environment...all worked fine but now i installed kde and cant mount my cdrom anymore it doesnt even try to read from cd can anyone help me?
if i go to /mnt/cdrom nothing happens
Please help me!
well likely it has the default paths of /dev/cdrom or some such thing. in arch the path to your cdrom is /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 (the zero can cvary depending on how many optical drives you have)
I am not your friend
A couple of things come to mind to consider:
(a) Do you actually have a mount point for KDE?
mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom
(b) Have you "unhid" the CD-ROM in fstab (i.e., remove the reference to 'unhide' in the attributes)?
(c) If you've set up a KDE desktop icon, you'll need to edit its properties. Go to ~/Desktop and edit your "CDROM Device.desktop":
or other values as appropriate.
(d) While you're at it you might want to download the "eject" package.
