Description of problem:
I have a bunch of symlinked folders that are on my desktop.
In f11, they are all lined up across the top of the window.
In rawhide, they appear lined up on blank desktop to the left of the screen.
If I got to f11, they appear where I put them (either in rawhide or f11), but when I return to rawhide, they have moved back to left again. Go back to f11 (without moving them) and they appear back where they should.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current versions of nautilus in f11 and rawhide. (This has been an issue for some time, but I've only just got my desktop stable enough to take the time to report this, sorry)
Very. Every time I return to rawhide, they are back on blank desktop to the left, instead of where I want them.
Same here, x64 Current Rawhide.
Symbolic link icons/folders do not stay where they are put. A logout/reboot will reorganize them to the left of the desktop screen.
Other local files/folders stay put!
Hmm. I believe that this was supposed to be fixed with
in glib 2.22.1.
What version of glib2 do you have ?
I can confirm this is not fixed.
Bug ping. Still an issue with glib2-2.22.2-2.fc12.x86_64.
Confirming, placing symlink to desktop, moving the icon somewhere else and pressing F5 (refresh) would line up it back to a default position. Doesn't happen with other files or folders, just symlinks to a directory (symlinked files are fine).
Looks like a gvfs metadata bug, happens also with clean ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata.
I believe that the fix commited for the bug 593809:
Always report metadata on the path, not symlink target
forgot to handle device id. As a result, gvfs does not report correct
metadata when the symlink's target is on a different device.
Please see bug 593809:
I posted some comments there.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
glib2-2.22.2-3.fc12 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 12.
I can confirm this fixes the issue. Thanks!
Yeah, I can confirm that this is fixed too.
It turns out that you need to move the icons back where you want them and then it's all good.
I was switching between f11 and f12 and in f11 they were in the right place, in f12 they weren't, so I assumed (wrongly???) that once this was fixed, this would see the icons in the 'Right Place' in f12 without having to redo the layout. Turns out I was wrong.
glib2-2.22.2-3.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
