I have a strange problem with ejecting CDs from my CD drive.
eject and eject -t work flawlessly eject -T gives
ioctl: Input/output error
As non-root user:
eject -t closes the tray as expected eject gives
eject: unable to eject, last error: Inappropriate ioctl for device
eject -T gives the same result as for root
It doesn't matter whether I do or do not specify sr0 as the device to eject. The non-root user that I try to execute this command as is in the optical group.
Does anybody else experience this type of problem? Does anybody have any pointers what may be wrong with my setup?
Eject only works for root. So you have to use sudo to be able to ejecting the CDs.
Not sure if anyone already pointed to this bug report https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/25405 It deals with eject not working properly.
Aah, this seems to mirror exactly what I'm experiencing. So at least it's a known issue, and the good thing is that the status says "Assigned". It says nothing about "eject -T" not working, and on my machines eject -T does not work as either root or non-root, but I would suspect that these two issues are closely related.
