Default LaCie 4L

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

History;
I installed the Application Software and followed with the 4L program
and of course it failed to find the drive. I found the lib file and
used apt-get install to put it in place.

Now;
I created a launcher for the 4L-gui and it pops right up, allows me to
import my disk design but it tells me I must have root privilege to
print a label. If I use the terminal and I use gksudo and the address,
no problem at all but I'm dealing with point and click women and what I
need to know is how to give root privilege to the launcher.

Is it possible?

Sure - check out 'man sudoers' (and then run the launcher vi sudo or
gksudo). Although it seems overkill to require root access to be able
to print - there might be some way to lower the access requirements.
I have not checked though...

Thanks Chris. I always do my best work in my sleep and when I woke up
my first thought was to add gksudo to the command line in hte launcher
and now I just type the password and go. I agree that it is extreme
over kill but then this entire Lightscribe issue, as I understand is a
H/P issue and we all know their love for MS. Perhaps they will grow up
someday. :-)
