cd recording problem

Because I use Kubuntu and not Ubuntu I use K3b  instead of Serpentine. For a while K3b in 7.10 behaved the same. I first moved copies from my desktop to my laptop and burnt them  there. Then I found that by opening K3b through the terminal it behaved. Try opening a terminal and inputing: sudo serpentine
