Version: 1.0Konqueror Burning Sidebar is a KDE ioslave and sidebar that lets you create and burn CDs or DVDs from Konqueror. K3b provides most of the backend.
Operating System: Linux
(Used to be called kio_burn)
The sidebar currently supports burning data and audio CDs.
Quick start guide:
The interface for version 0.8 is very different to previous versions. This page explains how to use the new interface.
Firstly, install the package. If you are using the source package this is done with something like
$ configure --prefix=/usr
$ su -c "make install"
Note that you need to set the "prefix" directory to be the one where KDE is installed.
Close all Konqueror windows you have open, hit Alt-F2, type "killall konqueror" and click "run".
Now open up a new Konqueror window. If it is not already visible, hit F9 to show the sidebar. Hopefully you will now see a yellow CD icon in one of the sidebar buttons on the left. If not, left click below the buttons and select Add New -> CD Writer. If this does not work, you may need to use "Rollback to system default".
· KDE 3.x. The author used 3.4, meaning it should work in 3.5, but I'm not sure about 3.3 and earlier
· TagLib, including development files
· K3b libraries
· cdrecord and mkisofs
What's New in This Release:
· Notifications of file changes in the burn:/ folder are now correctly sent to KDE applications, so changes appear instantly when browsing burn:/.
· This release also fixes numerous behavioural issues and some crash-causing bugs.
