It works fine on my standard 9.04 Kubuntu.
When I put a commercial audio cd in the drive, the device notifier pops 
up, showing an icon with a note in front of a cd, and the device name 
When i cklick that device entry, a new window opens where I can choose 
between ripping with K3b or open with Dolphin.

I choose Dolphin to rip with drag and drop, just like I used to do in 

Hope this helps.

Best regards :o)
