A KDE ioslave and sidebar that lets you create and burn CDs or DVDs from Konqueror.

This software depends on K3b 0.12.x. I recommend you use 0.12.14 or greater if possible.

the ./configure was correct
but after make, it returned this error any idea ? :
/usr/include/c++/3.3/bits/stl_map.h: At top level:

This project and similar are a great way to extend konqueror. However, I would like to see symbolic names for protocol type URLs e.g. burn:/ such as

"My Home Folder" -- file:/ or home:/
"Windows Network" -- smb:/ or lan:/
...
I wonder if this can be implemented within konqueror, so that when I drop down the location bar, it shows me these symbolic names rather than the URLs.

It would, I think, make the job of newbies easier.

A good example is what Xandros has done with their XFM file manager. It is clearly konqueror with some great improvements!

I'm afraid not.

I don't have time to make one at the moment - maybe if someone contributes one there will be.

A really great idea!!
But, why not asking Sebastian Trueg, the developer of K3B to support this?
Maybe it would possible to do this all by using kparts (if K3B supports this) or at least other parts of K3B, so you had a consistent usage and won't have to rewrite all this code from scratch.

Interesting thought. I haven't used K3B, but it might be a good idea to see if it could be turned into a KPart plugin for konq (maybe it already can, I don't know).

I wasn't really intending to make a replacement for the full-blown CD burning apps, just make a simple add in for konqueror to make it easy to make a basic data cd. I think people will always want / need this bigger programs for doing the complex jobs.

Thanks for the idea though. I'll have a look at k3b when I get some time.

That's great! I'd really like to see this done almost exactly as in GNOME, actually.

In other words, rather than having the "burn" and "settings" icons within the folder (which is rather unintuitive... are they files on the CD or buttons?) they ought to be on the toolbar and in the menu. You drag files onto the "CD" then hit the burn button; a small dialogue pops up, asking you to select the CD device, the burning speed, if it should blank the CDRW, if it should eject when done, and, if they're audio files, should it be an audio CD.

I'm working on a konqueror plugin to provide a toolbar button for burning that should be in the next version. Thanks for the suggestions.

Another long awaited io-slave!!!!


Many thanks!

I think it would be very cool to have commands to build cdda/vcd/svcd/dvd file/menusystems supporting Drag&Drop with title support and automated splitting, if cd is to small!
