    Nautilus (Files) and the Unity launcher when external partition is mounted.

    Hi,

    Not sure if this is a bug or a "feature" as nowadays gnome seems to come up with weird "features" in each new release.

    Anyway, here is my problem in Raring. Open nautilus, navigate to mount a partition in an external harddrive, then minimize Nautilus to the unity bar. Now if I click the "Files" icon (with the little right triangle beside indicating that it is in use) , it opens a new instance of Nautilus instead of restoring the one that has been minimized. This only happens when the minimized instance is for an external partition, if I open directories in the installations' own file system then it doesn't happen, in that case when click on the icon it restores the minimized instance as expected.

    I am on Raring, I am interested to know if there is any work around, and/or if a bug has been filed.

    Thanks.

    Don't know if there is a bug report but it seems to be a behavior/bug of the unity launcher, not nautilus.
    (if I use another dock like plank then a min. naut window of another partition is always returned on left click.

    No sure if it is Unity though. The problem doesn't arise with the patched version of Nautilus3.4 from SoluOS

    http://www.webupd8.org/2012/08/insta...untu-1204.html

    I will file a bug tomorrow, probably against both Nautilus and Unity.
