How can I burn cd's as a normal user (using cdrecord)? (Besides k3b)
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:2
Try adding user to the line in /etc/fstab that corresponds with your cd-writer.
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
suid cdrecord (and other tools you need)
The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
run visudo and give yourself permission.
then use something like :
sudo cdrecord dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 speed=99
driveropts=burnfree -eject $1
in a script with whatever you want to burn passed as a parameter.
That gives you control over access without pesky passwords.
Or change the permissions of /usr/bincdrecord to allow
execute by ordinary users.
