I changed K3b's language from French to English and restarted it. It
then strangely complained about cdrdao missing, even though it didn't do
that in French:
Unable to find cdrdao executable
K3b uses cdrdao to actually write CDs.
Solution: Install the cdrdao package.
It does that every time it's launched in English, and now even in French.
I tested that with another user and had the problem right away, in
French, but with dvd+rw-tools instead. The problem disappeared when I
forced the language to English.
k3b depends on both dvd+rw-tools and cdrdao
Setting severity as minor as I haven't determined that this message is a
symptom of any actual failure of K3b to use its dependencies. In fact,
if I go in the settings, K3b correctly shows cdrdao as installed. Oh
wait, now it doesn't show... very odd behavior. After going in the
configuration a few times, the issue for my main user changed to say
dvd+rw-tools was missing, too. After some 20 test, k3b never complained
about both dvd+rw-tools and cdrdao missing at the same time.
