[x86_64] 32bit apps using gtk file dialog are missing floppy icon
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:32 EDT
Description of problem:
The only way to open a document from a floppy disk seems to be to navigate to
the floppy using nautilus first and right-click on it. File->Open from
OpenOffice.org only shows a dialog with:
Yes, yes, I could go to /media/floppy -- if it had already been mounted. But
I'm sure that in Fedora Core 3 it showed Floppy there too, and when
double-clicked it mounted it as you would expect.
Indeed, gedit's File->Open has this expected behaviour.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
There should be nothing special about the OOo file dialog, it's just the same
gnome one as gedit. Both run as the same logged in user ?
Yes, both as same user. I'm running them at the same time at the moment, and
the gedit dialog has four things that the OOo one does not: Floppy Drive, CD-ROM
Drive, CD-RW Drive, and 'backup' (a mounted external storage device).
Perhaps OOo is passing different flags.
hmm, 64bit eh ? how about on a 32bit machine, OOo is 32bit, is there another
32bit gnome-vfs and gtk file dialog using app to see if the problem is generic
for 32bit gtk on 64bit.
amusingly i have neither a 64bit machine or a floppy drive :-)
Okay, yes, it works on a 32-bit machine -- hadn't spotted that!
I have a 32-bit mozilla installed on this x86_64 machine, and sure enough, "Open
File..." from the menu gives the same symptom of missing the removable media.
righteo, so a generic "32bit apps using gtk file dialog are missing floppy icon"
rather than a specific OOo problem.
Is this still a problem?
No, seems to be fine on FC5 now.
