Just thinking (since I had the same trouble after upgrading) ... are you
a member of the audio group?
looks like I'm about to be... I can't seem to find a satisfactory
solution and have seen two recommendations to join that group since this
problem will get addressed at some point and I'm willing to help in
whatever way I can...
Whoops! He meant is your user in the audio group in /etc/group
That is the easy way to check: more /etc/group and see if your user is a
member of the group named "audio"
...or crank up your personal user account editor in preferences and do
that with a gui. I don't know the name of that KDE application but I'm
sure you can easily find it. You user should also be a member of the
group "cdrom" as well, if you want to use your cdrom or dvd. Ric
