Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219092
Extra DVD icon on desktop
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
I have a phantom zombie DVD+R icon on my desktop. There is no DVD+R in the
drive. I don't know where to get rid of the icon -- obvious GUI gestures don't
do anything. the /media directory is empty. If I put that same DVD+R back into
the drive, a second icon appears which acts normally and which seems to be
totally independent of the broken duplicate icon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm not sure how this happened.
Though I'd appreciate advice on how to get rid of the icon, I'm also willing to
run any tests or post any useful configuration information while it's still there.
Just deleting it doesn't work? (I.E. maybe you accidentally copied the icon from
a mounted cdrom and got a desktop file.)
I remember trying to delete the icon (with the delete key, I believe). A dialog
box popped up with something along the lines of "if you want to eject this disk,
then . . ." I stopped reading around this point because the icon was still there.
I remember also looking in $HOME/Desktop/ with the -a option of ls for a file
corresponding to that icon. There weren't any.
Unfortunately, my power has gone out since reporting the bug. The first time
the power went out after I reported this, I turned the computer, logged in, and
the zombie icon was no longer there.
The best bugs are those that fix themselves.
Hard to do anything without a reproducer. Reopen if you see it again.
