I am on FC5 with all latest updates and when I wanted to burn the new FC6 dvd iso K3B got an error saying: Could not find growisofs executable. locate on growisofs revealed:

/bin/growisofs
/sbin/growisofs
/usr/bin/growisofs

They were all identical so I figured that at least one of should be found. Running as root went fine, so at least I have the FC6 CD now, but why won't K3B run in my user environment? Even sudo k3b won't run.

Regards,
Much better to fix your path.

This is what I find so strange, my path is OK.


The problem with running ANY KDE based application as root while you are logged in is that the application will modify permissions on .ICEauthority (and possibly others) to be owned by root.

This will break your next login attempt. :(
