       cdde.xml - Configuration file for cdde


       When  cdde  is  run for the first time, an example xml configuration file (~/.cdde.xml) is
       created for you:

       <?xml version="1.0"?>
       <cdde delay="5000000">
         <drive path="/dev/cdrom">
           <audio command="echo An audio cd was inserted."/>
           <data command="echo A data cd was inserted."/>
           <dvd command="echo A dvd was inserted."/>
           <vcd command="echo A vcd was inserted."/>
           <svcd command="echo A svcd was inserted."/>
           <blank command="echo A blank cdr/dvdr was inserted."/>
           <mixed command="echo A mixed (audio/data) cd was inserted."/>

       This default file is not very useful, and so I suggest you to edit it to your needs before
       running  cdde  again.   You  may  add  as many drive entries, or commands as you like.  If
       multiple entries are found for a type of disc then all entries will be run  in  the  order
       they are found.

       The  specific device in use can be passed to the command with one of the following special

         %dev%  -  is replaced with the device name of the cdrom that
                   just had a disc inserted

         %mnt%  -  is replaced with the listed mount point for the
                   cdrom that just had a disc inserted

       Note:   %mnt% is determined through your fstab (usually located in /etc) file. If  you  do
       not have a listing for each <drive> in the fstab this will cause problems.

       This  way,  you  can  tell  your  video player which device to use when playing a VCD, for


       This is an example of ~/.cdde.xml file:

       <?xml version="1.0"?>
       <cdde delay="5000000">
         <drive path="/dev/cdroms/cdrom0"/>
           <audio command="xmms %mnt%"/>
           <data command="mount %mnt%"/>
            command="xterm -iconic -e mplayer -fs -xineramascreen 1 -dvd 1"/>
            command="xterm -iconic -e mplayer -fs -xineramascreen 1 -vcd 1"/>
            command="xterm -iconic -e mplayer -fs -xineramascreen 1 -vcd 1"/>
           <blank command="gcombust"/>
           <mixed command="mount %mnt%"/>
