  You may want to give k3b on TDE a try. I just finished building the package
tonight. See:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Trinity#Complete_packages_.28current.29 for
the list of current packages for TDE. It provides k3b (tQt3 version), along with
k9copy. k3b behaves the same way it did in KDE3 in Trinity. Testing is underway,
the final R14 release of Trinity (without hal) should be complete in the next 10
days or so. I have all packages building. So I have x86_64 binaries available
for testing. I just need server space to host them...
