Re: What configuration files/scripts control permissions for cd/dvd drive
Start by examining /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules
It may be as easy as adding a MODE= to the line
SUBSYSTEM=="block", KERNEL=="sr[0-9]*", GROUP="cdrom"/home/stevea/.kde/share/config/kded_device_automounterrc
Or perhaps OWNER=..., GROUP=...
That may vary from release to release but addresses the device permissions issue.
WRT to the automount permissions, thats a desktop matter.
