    Kaffeine and audioCDs


    Hello,

    I run Mandrake 10 on an emachines M5116 laptop.

    I can play audio CDs at the moment only through Konqueror (audioCD:/). I get no sound from them when I try other applications. In Kaffeine (0.4) I get the following error - "No CD, or wrong path to device." In Totem (0.99.9) I get - "Totem could not play this media (AudioCD) although a plugin is present to handle it.

    Any ideas what may be wrong?

    Do you have sufficient access to the cdrom? Does it work as root? Might be a longshot, and shouldn't affect the software, but is the cable between your cdrom and soundcard present?

    Good luck

    Kriss,

    It does not play as root. When I try to mount the CDRom through desktop device icon it tells me that it is the wrong medium type.

    As far as I know the cable is present - I did manage to get the sound working OK in a previous installation of Mandrake on the same laptop.

    It is possible that you would have to configure the application to use the method of playback that you are using you might have to tell it OSS, ALSA, or what you might be using for sound compatibility.
