Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Welcome to part 5, the final article in our little series on the KDE 4.3 System Settings control panel. I first off want to thank the KDE devs for creating such a great desktop environment (DE) and for simplifying the control panel (now known as "System Settings"). The last time I had to do an article series like this, it took me 10 articles and nearly a month to pull it off.

"But don't let the fact that it has a more compact control panel fool you. It's just as powerful as ever. But you don't have to work quite as hard to administrate your KDE 4.x desktop. But that aside, let's have a look at the last section in the System Settings control panel and what it has to offer.

"The K3b Setup section is a stand alone configuration window that allows you to setup and configure permissions, the device to use, and any external programs to use along with it. This includes things like CDRDAO, CDrecord, Growisofs, and others. For the vast majority of users, you shouldn't need to touch this section. This is more or less for fixing minor problems, or tweaking your setup whenever you chose to use something other than the standard configuration. IE, this is power user territory."
