K3b operation prorblem user

fedora 38… the use of k3b is restricted in this user’s behavior for buring DVD or CD.
but operation is normal on the root account.

The bug is reported here: 2075418 – kernel 5.16 prevents k3b access to /dev/cdrom

As an alternative, you can try using brasero.

Make sure your user is a member of the cdrom group with groups.
If not then the user can be added to that group with sudo usermod -a -G cdrom <USERNAME> then log out and back in and repeat the groups command to verify.

After that the user should be able to use brasero or k3b to burn a CD or DVD.

# ls -l /dev/cdrom /dev/sr0
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root      3 Apr 30 22:22 /dev/cdrom -> sr0
brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 Apr 30 22:22 /dev/sr0
