I wish to run K3b from the command line. I do not mind if it opens windows, as long as I do not have to click in them and they ultimately close.
Specifically, I wish to run
k3b --copy /dev/cdrom.
This works, of course, but I have to click a window to actually start the processing, which is annoying in my context.
The reason I want to do everything from the command line is to embed it all in a simple script, and forget it as soon as it is started (Yes, I know I cannot fill the drive from the command line ... not yet :-) )
I know that many of the K3b processing features are just MMI embedding of independent applications, which could be called independently of K3b (K3b explicitely lists them). But this apparently not the case for
I am running Mageia Linux with Kde.

I do not want to burn new copies. This is exclusively to have ISO images of the CDs/DVDs, for processing on hard disk. My archive is fairly large and unwieldy on optical media.
I realize K3b is bloated. But it has been doing a good job for me so far, and I tend to trust it. Suggestions of other applications are certainly useful, still.
This said, I like command line, and I am interested in an answer to my original question if there is one.
