 Your README file

 by angrykeyboarder on: Sep 1 2007

I note in your readme file you give nice instructions for Kubuntu users:

"Install for Kubuntu 7.04
Open the KDE terminal

1) Install package:
sudo apt-get install hal
sudo apt-get install hal-device-manager
sudo apt-get install hal-info
sudo apt-get install kde-hal-device-manager
sudo apt-get install libhal1
sudo apt-get install libhal-storage1
sudo apt-get install kommander
sudo apt-get install udftools
sudo apt-get install dvd+rw-tools"

But I could not help but notice you spent extra time typing it out the (needlessly) long way.

The end result? Users spend even more time installing than you spent typing.

Make it easy on yourself and everyone else.

Just one line:

"sudo apt-get install hal hal-device-manager hal-info kde-hal-device-manager libhal1 libhal-storage1 kommander udftools dvd+rw-tools"

Quicker for you to type and quicker for us to copy and paste! :)

Badda-bing Badda-boom!

I "fixed" it before installing the packages you suggested and the result? I was told I had everything but udftools as APT was downloading and installing for me. :)

 Got source code?

This isn't source code. It's the program itself.

I want to compile from source and create Debian package.

 Problems in debian

 by hifi25nl on: May 13 2008
Score 50%

I don't know how much time I have spent on packet writing in the last 2 years...so I have found your software the most interesting. However I would point out that:
1) The installer is not working in debian: "Please use the software installer of your distribution, then restart this installer."
So, after installing almost manually, I have these problems:
2) Disc-Format is not working, after about 1 second I receive a message that all is done...
3) Eject is not working: this, I think, is a problem of udftools, I had it before. If I select eject the disk will unmount but not eject. What is strange is that, after trying to mount another time and receiving a message that the disc cannot be mounted, if I press manually the button of the tray, the disk will come out!
4) In extended properties Medium Access Permission is greyed out. The same with Mount Point permissions.
5) It is not clear to me if the suggestions for kubuntu should be applied to debian (see readme about 40-permissions.rules etc...). In any case I have tried to apply the rules (file names are different in debian), but the result is the same as leaving the files untouched.
5) I think you should clarify how to install packet writing in Linux. For example, udftools was complaining about missing device at boot. At last my configuration is this:
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
# packet writing
/dev/scd0 /media/dvdram udf noatime,noauto,owner,user,rw 0 0
-----> I have also made a
pktsetup devpktcdvd0 /dev/scd0
Something wrong? All dvd writers must be registered manually with pktsetup?

For DVD-RAM support you don't need the packet writing, but you need Linux 2.6.22 or a newer kernel.

KDVD-RAM Tools 0.5 Requirements:
- Linux 2.6.22 or newer
- KDE 3.5.9 with kdialog and kommander (kmdr-executor)
- UDF Tools (mkudffs)
- dvd+rw-tools (dvd+rw-format, dvd+rw-mediainfo, dvd-ram-control)
- hal
- hdparm (ATA/IDE Device) or sdparm (SCSI/SATA Device)

Please check if the utilities works!

Uninstalled everything and installed another time. This is the message:
KDVD-RAM Tools 0.5 Beta installer

The hal package is required, but not yet installed.
cat: /etc/lsb-release: No such file or directory
Please use the software installer of your distribution, then restart this installer.
However, hal is installed....an also udftools and dvd+rw-tools

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
