The "Generic SCSI Device" is a simple tex field with no
hint as to what it may be expecting. The documentation
"Generic SCSI device If you are using a SCSI drive,
or an IDE drive under SCSI emulation, you need to
specify the generic SCSI device to be used. Make sure
that your user account has access to this device, or
Grip will not be able to rip."
I'm not a new Linux user, but I have no idea what the
above means, so genuine new users certainly aren't
going to have a clue without guidence.
Might I suggest a tooltip when hovering over the
description and text input box, such as "Example: 'sg',
'/dev/scd'" or whatever you are expecting, with a list
of common entries in the documentation?
I'm not sure whether you mean the device driver,
something in /dev, the full path, or what...
eroaster has a button to auto-detect the SCSI device,
you may wish to see if the code can be ported across.
I shall keep trying until I work out what you think I
know. I hope my suggestion is a constructive one.
