Default K3B not working for me
I have a CD/DVD RW drive, which they system recognizes and is visible in the file system. I installed K3B. In K3B I tried to erase my CD. It gave no option for a CD drive to erase. I tried mounting/unmounting loading and ejecting. Nothing helped. It is a R/W CD.

I tried plugging in an LG USB external CD-DVD R/w drive. It was recognized, and visible in the file system. It still wouldn't let me erase the drive. It did try to do something there in K3B. It seemed to try to start copying music straight away on top of it without asking if I want to erase it or warning that I need to erase it. (it had an ISO image on it)

It seems like K3B is lacking some rights that it needs. I tried checking the settings, but everything seemed to be in order there.

Any advice?

Read the handbook http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/han ... g-cds.html
and in particular read the man pages for cdrtools.

Thanks. I will read the pages when I have some time. They had a lot of useful information.

I am kind of new here, but I had understood that the PBI package system was supposed to install a working piece of software and take care of the dependencies. At least that's what it seemed to do when I installed some other PBIs.

I wonder how K3B works in Fibonacci.

I ran it in Edison and run it now in Fibonacci and it works fine for me. In fact I just successfully erased a CDRW on my internal drive with it. Have you tried removing and reinstalling K3b?
