Device notifier refuses to open encrypted device in dolphin
Last modified: 2016-12-20 13:57:40 EST
Description of problem:
Device notifier won't open an external USB drive in file manager, because it keeps trying to mount the drive first, when it's already mounted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect encrypted USB drive.
2. Click "Open in File Manager" on device notifier.
3. Enter passphrase for device.
The drive mounts OK, but the device notifier shows an error:
> Could not mount the following device: 465.7 GiB encrypted drive. The device is already mounted: Device /dev/dm-4 is already mounted at '/run/media/jwakely/extdisk'.
The drive shows as mounted (I can click the Eject icon to unmount it) but clicking "Open in File Manager" keeps trying to remount it, and giving that error.
If I run Dolphin manually and navigate to the drive it's working fine, but the "Open File Manager" widget in the device notifier doesn't work.
The drive is mounted already, just open the file manager.
Plasmashell also crashes sometimes I do this, although not every time. Abrt logged that as a dup of Bug 1259472.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
This seems to work OK in F24
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
