Why does K3B sometimes need root access, and sometimes not?

Novell Cool Solutions: Question & Answer

Posted: 10 Feb 2005

There are times I have used k3b to burn cd's and I can burn them fine as my user. There are other times that it requires root privileges. What's up?

In the default settings, K3B is not required to run as root, but sometimes after an upgrade, you will be asked for the root password when running K3B. As of now, the only way to fix this is to use a fresh installation.

This issue will be fixed in the next version of the software.
