This plugin puts a button in the panel to open or close a CD-ROM drive tray.
Additionally, the button icon reports the content of the drive. The icon indicates if there is a disc in the drive, if it is mounted, and the type of the disc (regular CD-ROM, audio, DVD…).
You can also mount or unmount the disc via the plugin menu (the action appears when a mountable disc is in the drive).
Place it in your panel and open the configuration dialog to select a CD-ROM drive to associate with the plugin.
Note: The plugin picks the icons from the theme in use. In the screenshots below, i set mine to “Gorilla” because it has different icons for audio and regular CD.
