KDE CDEmu Manager
System Software
Description:

KDE CDEmu Manager is a simple frontend for CDEmu.

It provides a small manager window that gives you an overview of your virtual drives and allows you to mount and unmount images.

It also includes a service menu for mounting images directly from Dolphin/Konqueror.

Images can be unmounted like any other media through Dolphin or the Device Notifier.

How to install:
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kf5-config --prefix` ..
make
make install (as root)

Translations and feedback are welcome.

Enjoy!

Currently following translations are available:
Chinese (Taiwan), French, German, Polish, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish

Hi,

I notice that the mimetypes for the dolphin service menu in kde_cdemu_mount.desktop are not quite right, at least with libmirage 3.3

For example, libmirage-b6t is the name of the file in /usr/share/mime/packages which is used to generate the mimetype, but the mimetype itself is
application/x-b6t. So I think that the MimeType line in kde_cdemu_mount.desktop should read:

MimeType=application/x-cd-image;application/x-cue;application/x-cdrao-toc;application/x-b6t;application/x-c2d;application/x-ccd;application/x-cdi;application/x-cif;application/x-daa;application/x-mds;application/x-nrg;application/x-xmd;

ie, remove libmirage-* and replace with application/x-*. When I do this the "mount image" service menu for dolphin starts to work for *.nrg images.

Thanks for your useful utility
Simeon

Cdemu-client-1.4.0 and kcdemu-0.3.1 are different pieces of software, written by different people. The instructions above are for compiling kcdemu; they do not apply to cdemu-client.

(FYI, to build cdemu-client, you use the usual Linux ./configure, make, make install commands. If you don't know what that means, google for it.)

Yeah I see the difference now. I mess up with the other sources. Similar names and it made me confused.
Now its up and working.
thanks for Your help
great peace of code :D

Yes, it does work. But could you rename the file to kde-cdemu-0.4.tar.gz. It would be easier to make a gentoo ebuild and besides the inner folder is named kde-cdemu-0.4 anyway.

And are you planning to maintain it further? If so, would be great if you upload it as a new app coz marcel doesn't seem to be updating this anymore.

I'm on gentoo and I cant mount an image with cdemu v1.4.0 using kcdemu since a dbus session doesn't exist. From konsole though, it works fine. And once an image is mounted (from konsole), kcdemu works fine with next images.

Hi, your way of probing for presence of cdemud via QDBusConnectionInterface::isServiceRegistered(...) does not work with D-Bus service autostarting, which is default in upcoming cdemu 1.3.1

Sorry, but I found out that everything was not about KDE CDEmu Manager, but my Removable Devices Manager. Somehow I uninstalled it from my system and every device needed to be mounted manually. Today I reinstalled it and everything is fine now. Thanks for great program.
PS: sorry for spam, I posted the first message and then I was just pressing F5 in my browser to reload page so I can see if there any replies to my message. That happened twice and my first message was posted two more times. A little security breach in site ;)

I installed CDEmu 1.2.0 and KDE CDemu 0.3
from repositories of my Mandriva 2010.1
everything was fine except of that after mounting image through your utility image is mounted only in device but not to file system and I also needed to use "mount /dev/sr1 /media/cdrom" to get access to the content of my MDF image.
I read somewhere that this issue is fixed in version 0.3.1 of KDE CDEmu. I came here downloaded sources, removed previous version 0.3 and installed 0.3.1 from sources, and.... nothing changed. I still have to mount device from console using "mount". I have KDE 4.4.3. How can I fix this problem?

While making for myself a Fedora RPM, I also translated the application to European Portuguese. It is available in http://rapidshare.com/files/439710234/kde_cdemu_portuguese_translation. I, hereby, submit it to you.

Thanks, it works with KDE 4.5 and cdemu 0.3.

I've noticed a small bug: when you mount an image via the context menu, KDE seems to be waiting for something but it times out after some time (cursor jumps up and down, a stub entry in the task manager).

Also, I would prefer if the program lauched cdemud itself if it's not running yet. This way I wouldn't have to launch it by hand or add an autostart entry in KDE.
