 +====== CDDrive ======
  
 +===== About =====
 +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).
 +
 +===== Usage =====
 +
 +Place it in your panel and open the configuration dialog to select a CD-ROM drive to associate with the plugin.
 +
 +===== Screenshots =====
 +
 +**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.

 +
 +[[http://​goodies.xfce.org/​releases/​xfce4-cddrive-plugin/​xfce4-cddrive-plugin-0.0.1.tar.bz2|xfce4-cddrive-plugin-0.0.1.tar.bz2]]
 +
 +===== Dependencies =====
 +  * Works correctly on Linux only.
 +
 +  * This plugin is based on HAL. It will not work if '​hald'​ is not running.
 +
 +  * The plugin can query the freedb.org servers for audio CD titles. To compile with this feature enabled, you need libcdio and libcddb. The gthread-2.0 library is also recommanded in this case to prevent the plugin from hanging while waiting for freedb.org response, but is not mandatory.
 +
 +===== Reporting Bugs =====
 +
 +Bugs should be reported to the [[http://​bugzilla.xfce.org|Xfce bug tracking system]] (product ''​Xfce Panel Plugins'',​ component ''​xfce4-cddrive-plugin''​).
