Re: Optical Drive not being found

That tells you the group owning /dev/sr0 is "optical". You need to make your user part of the optical group if not already, then you should be able to see a disk in the drive and use it. The user running makemkv must have access to the drive before makemkv can use it, so this step is first. Using th...

Re: Application Failed to Initialize - finally fixed for me

The duplicate libraries were what hosed me up as well. Upgrading from 1.14.5 to 1.15.3 and got the same error. Found duplicates of libmakemkv.so.1, libdriveio.so.0 and libmmbd.so.0 in both /dev/lib and /dev/lib64. Guess that confused the linker. Manually removed all, reinstalled 1.15.3 and all was w...

Re: 1.15.2 Application Failed to Initialize

Don't need to uninstall. I had the same issue with 1.15.3 on Fedora after using this for the past 4 years. 1.14.5 worked fine from an install a year ago, but I recently installed 1.15.3 and it failed with the same error. Research revealed that I had duplicate library files in /usr/lib and /usr/lib64...

Re: external dvd drive (linux)

I have a slim blue ray RW that I bought for use with my laptop some time ago. It is an LG BP50NB40 Currently about 5 years old, but is powered entirely by USB and has worked like a champ for me. I just tested it with MakeMKV 1.15.3 on Fedora linux and it worked like a charm copying a BD. It is defin...

1.15.3 fails with "application failed to initialize"

The version that has been working was 1.14.5 and with the recent release of 1.15.3 I decided to try and upgrade to take advantage of updates in the software. After downloading and installing 1.15.3 every a...
