       by your CDROM environment variable.  Print the current xcd

 Manager's Customize Window dialog box.  Specifies the

       screen specified by  your  DISPLAY  environment  variable.
       The  display option has the format hostname:number.  Using

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  xcd  command displays a graphical representation of a
       compact disk player's control panel  using  X-based  Motif
       windows.   The  display  includes a main key pad with keys
       status window displays track and time information.  A  set
       of  selection  buttons,  one for each track of an inserted
       CD, allow you to directly select a  track  to  be  played.
       The  selection  buttons  double  as  a display of the play
       sequence with track now  playing  highlighted.   A  volume
       slider adjusts output volume across a scale of 0-100.  The
       volume control on the CD drive itself  should  be  set  to

       To  use this program you need a workstation with a Compact
       Disk drive.  The xcd program is not supported.

       Most of the buttons on the control panel are self-explanatory.
  One, however, may not be obvious.  The padlock button
 may be used to disable the eject button on  the  front
       of  the  CD drive.  This can be used to discourage someone
       from ripping off your CD.

       You can customize some  aspects  of  xcd's  appearance  by
       specifying  xcd  resources in your ~/.Xdefaults file.  Use
       the Xcd file as a template.  This file  is  found  in  the
       /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/ directory.

       xcd  will  attempt  to find the cd player on your machine.
       If you have multiple CD-ROM players on  your  machine,  it
       will  use  the  first  one found. The method it uses is to
       start scanning the bus using CAM from low to high, so  the
       lowest  numbered CD-ROM on the lowest numbered bus will be
       the selected device. To override this selection,  set  the
       environment  variable  CDROM  or the -cd option which will
       override this mechanism.  For the  automatic  location  of
       the CD device to work you must have read permission on the
       /dev/cam device.  As superuser you  should:  #  chmod  644

       You  will  need  to  have  the  permissions of your CD-ROM
       device changed to allow proper operation. In  our  example
       we  will use /dev/rrz4c.  As superuser you should: # chmod
       666 /dev/rdisk/dsk4c

       You can tell xcd where the CD-ROM drive is.   You  can  do
       this  by  either setting the environment variable CDROM to
       the device, or by starting xcd with the  -cd  option.  For

            #  using the environment variable (csh)      % setenv
       CDROM /dev/rdisk/dsk4c      % xcd

            #   using   the   '-cd'   option        %   xcd   -cd

       Or you can let xcd figure out where the CD-ROM is.
