Another problem...

...with my brain, I'm quite sure.

I have serious problems with devices permissions : I can read a DVD with
MPlayer being root, but not being me. Same thing with gphoto2 : I can
download the photos from my camera being root, but not as a normal user.

My normal user belongs to disk, usb, video, haldaemon... I don't know
what to add ! Some of the devices created by udev in the dev directory do
seem to be owned by root, so this may be the problem.

I'm quite sure there is something in the book about this, but I can't
remember where :-(

Can you help me please ?
