Congrats. :D

Any case, libk3b7-extracodecs is one of the recommend packages, so configuring Synaptic as per link provided , k3b would be installed w/o that problem (as it is in LM 17.X and 18.X).
Now please, to help someone with the same problem edit your first post (click on the pencil icon) and add [Solved] to the subject . Ouch! it is not your thread and beckwith had solved it before...:roll:

Hi beckwith,

I have been using Linux Mint KDE since 2013 and testing various other Linux Mint editions and versions. When using or testing Linux Mint Cinnamon, Mate, or Xfce, I always install "K3b" from the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" with all of its recommended and suggested packages and it has always worked well for me. A lot of people install "K3b" in any edition and version of Linux Mint because it is the best DVD/CD application. "xfburn" works well too.

- In my humble opinion (IMHO), it is not necessary or advisable to manually change the "aptconf" file when you can use "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" to install recommended and or suggested packages.

- I have never had to change permissions like " 'chmod 4755' on /usr/bin/wodim & cdrdao" before, but there are numerous posts for Linux Mint 19 (Ubuntu 18.04) regarding this. "K3b" used to have an option to change the permissions built-in, but I guess they forgot to include this feature when they compiled it for this new version.

Problem with k3b in 18.04 releases " cdrecord has no permission to open the device"

If rebooting after installing K3b did not work,
Then as you found out, it is easy to correct this issue using the command below:

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/wodim; sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/cdrdao
Anyone can check "K3b" using its Settings-> Configure K3b

As for asking what you are trying to do with K3b, that is because not everyone installs all the recommended and suggested packages, and or they forgot to install the 3rd party software (mint-meta-codecs) during the original Linux Mint installation.

You received an audio codec error message while trying to burn "Clonezilla Live" ".iso" file which is a hard drive and partition image back up application. I was not aware that "Clonezilla Live" would include audio codecs in their application?

Update: I just burned a CD and a DVD of the newest Clonezilla Live (CL) versions with K3b in Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon, and they work fine. I did notice that CL now has a new speech synthesis option, what is that? Perhaps that is why you got the audio codec error message?

Hope this helps ...

Excellent tip, problem solved about mp3 issue.
