I'm using KDE 4.11 (4.11.2, if I remember correctly) build from
Fedora-KDE-SIG (thanks) for RHEL6. After a fresh installation, I am
finding that optical disks are not recognised by KDE.
When I insert a CD/DVD, it is not listed by Device Notifier (USB disks
work fine) and also not in 'Places' panel of Dolphin. There is no direct
way of accessing the disk from KDE.
I can manually mount the disk from a terminal without issues.
I tried the same in GNOME and it detects the disk automatically.
Any ideas on where the issue might be?
That should be handled by hal on rhel6, does
exist on your box?
Does this do the same for you?
$ echo $SOLID_HAL_LEGACY
Is the hal service running?
$ service haldaemon status
hald (pid XXX) is running...
