<quote>K3b did not find an optical writing device in your system. Thus, you will not be able to burn CDs or DVDs. However, you can still use other K3b features ...

No CD/DVD writer found.
What is missing from my permissions?
<quote># ls -l /dev/sr0

Interesting. The permissions morphed:
<quote># egrep '^disk' /etc/group
but it should be okay. Why is this made so difficult to use? Sure, if I were installing a departmental server, but we're talking about my personal work station. It should not take hours and hours and hours and hours to set up.
By the way, SuSE won't let you add the "disk" group via the GUI interface.
It is not listed in the groups you can use. "vi /etc/group" worked fine, but
still, K3b absolutely refuses to allow me to burn a CD on my work station.

What version of suse are you using? After you add yourself to a group you have to log out and log back in in order for the changes to take effect.
