Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 440029
Disk Management tool
Last modified: 2008-11-06 04:43:47 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
When you log in as a normal user
And click Gnome --> Application --> System Tools --> Disk Management
Up comes a msg box
[ User mount Tool ]
There are no filesystem which you
are allowed to mount or unmount.
Contact your administrator.
Even with system wide root privileges it asks you
to contact your administration.
When logged in as root you apparently have the
missing "administrator" privileges.
Steps to Reproduce:
Being asked for root password instead of being
asked to contact the administrator..
or this menu item being hidden from the normal user account.
This belongs to usermode, not gnome.
Can we please add a
NoDisplay = true
line to the desktop file ?
Matthias, does this mean the correct way to do this has changed since #132559?
(what about KDE?) be acceptable?
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
Me ? mclasen ( which set the bug to needinfo in the first place ) or mitr?
What I suggest is.
A) Replace "Administrator" with root.
B) Hide the application from the desktop.
C) Remove it altogether from the default install.
BTW is this application not obsolete?
Matthias? Please see comment #2.
Given that neither GNOME nor KDE works in this manner (editing fstab, etc), I think we should probably just remove this.
(Or, if nothing else, just remove the desktop file.)
Yo just did a fresh F10Preview installation
Final is around the corner!....
Make a decision either this is removed/hidden or stays like this..
and this bug is closed..
Matthias? See comment #2, please.
Nothing has changed.
That bug was already asking to add NoDisplay=true to the desktop file 4 years ago...
I'm sorry, I have no idea why I referred to that bug.
Let me try again: Why are you suggesting NoDisplay=true? AFAICS a redhat-usermount.desktop with NoDisplay=true does not serve any purpose. Why is NoDisplay=true better than OnlyShowIn=GNOME ?
Presumably, kde doesn't want it in the menus either...
Anyway, in F11, I hope DeviceKit will make this discussion moot.

We don't want it in GNOME as we have things run through HAL and gnome-mount.
Under what situations does this program actually work? It may be best to just not build/ship it.
Rawhide usermode-1.98.1-2 uses NotShowIn=GNOME;KDE; .
