CD Detect & Execute (CDDE) is an utility for Linux that detects when a CD/DVD-ROM drive has a disc inserted. When it finds a disc inserted in the drive it will attempt to determine the type of the disc, and execute a specified command. This means a DVD can be inserted and your favorite DVD software will start, or a data CD can be automatically mounted, etc. The commands are defined in a configuration file that has simple XML syntax.
CDDE was written by Eric Lathrop. Since August 2008 the maintenance and packaging of CDDE is done at SourceForge. If you are interested in this project and willing to contribute please contact the current project admin Stanislav . Maslovski at gmail . com.
svn co https://cdde.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/cdde/trunk cdde
./autogen.sh to generate scripts used by
./configure (you will need
autotools for this step);
please note that
autogen.sh will run
./configure by itself, if you
need to supply arguments to it, add them to
autogen.sh command line.
./autogen.sh --help will create the scripts and list the avaliable
configure arguments. To configure (or reconfigure) the package later simply run
./configure with the necessary arguments.
To compile and install the program do
make install, as usual.
We periodically release source tarballs. You can either get the latest release directly using the link below:
or check it out of the SVN repository. Every release is given a tag which is the same as the release version number. You can use this command to check out a particular release:
svn co https://cdde.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/cdde/tags/x.z.y cdde-x.y.z
x.z.y is 0.3.1 (for the latest release).
The release tarballs include files generated by autotools therefore to
compile the program it is enough to do
./configure && make.
