Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 444070
gvfs mount points don't mount at the right directory
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:32:27 EST
Description of problem:
With the old gnome-vfs mount points would point to /home/whoever/ if that was
what was setup. Now, the bookmark does, but the mount (on the desktop) does not.
This is a serious bug. It should be consistent with the old behavior. More
importantly, it should be consistent between the bookmark and mount point on the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount a point (sftp/ssh is what I am doing) on a remote system
2. Use the mount point on the desktop
3. See that it takes you to the root directory and not /whatever/whatever
not 100% clear what you mean. To double-check: you are complaining that if you have
in your bookmarks, it mounts / on foo.org, not /home/trever ?
Yes, and in the directory section of it, I even have it set to /home/trever. The
bookmark always opens the correct place. The icon on the desktop always opens /.
Is that clearer?
Sorry, that would be in server/port/folder I have folder set to /home/trever.
Ok, so this bug is about "Location" launchers on the desktop.
And there are at least 2 problems as far as I can see:
- a launcher for a local location opens a nautilus window, a launcher for a
unmounted location (e.g. sftp) just mounts it, but doesn't open a window
- the mount ignores the directory part, as outlined above
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I do not know if this is launchers or not. It is "Book marks" and "connect to
server" under places. The first opening of a window (on connect to or clicking
the book mark) takes you to the right place. If you then use the folder icon it
creates on the desktop, it takes you to / on that server.
This bug still exists. It is highly annoying.
This appears to only affect ssh at this point.
This appears to possibly be fixed in F10-Rawhide.
I was wrong. It is still broken on ssh in rawhide.
This now works for everything but reopened connections. It doesn't bug me anymore and no one cared. Marking fixed in rawhide since it mostly is.
