Description of problem:
In both skipjack betas (1 and 2) the default KDE desktop no longer has icons for
the system's removable storage devices. Previous versions of RHL (i.e 7.2) had
default icons on the desktop that represented the removable storage devices such
as the floppy and optical drives. Where'd they go?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install skipjack with KDE as the default windowing system
2.Launch KDE, choosing the defaults for each selection in the wizard.
Actual Results: Icons for trash, control panel, home, www.redhat.com appear but
no icons for floppy or cdrom.
Expected Results: Icons for the removable storage devices appear.
When this bug is fixed, is there a way of optionally removing these devices from
my users desktops with a global config option?
I agree they are missing and having them on the desktop can be useful.
This bug is reported against old release of Red Hat Linux or Fedora Core
that is no longer supported. Chances are that it has been already fixed in
newer Fedora Core release. If you still experience the problem with
current release of Fedora Core, please update the Version field (you may
need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
This issue is no longer relevent in current version of Fedora.
