View Full Version : [ubuntu] problems displaying contents of trash

February 7th, 2010, 08:53 PM
I'm on Ubuntu 9.04 running an older kernel: generic
ever since a recent update
I've been experiencing a strange anomaly
when I try to view the contents of my trash
the background wallpaper changes on different surfaces
or goes to white
I lose the trash icon
also when I connect via samba to an OS X laptop
I can connect but when I open a window on my Linux laptop
in order to drag files over
the same thing happens:
- background changes
- or goes to white
- lose desktop icons of dirs and files
- window for smb:// closes after opening

is this bug a known issue?
is it solved by upgrading to 9.10?
is this caused by Compiz/Emerald/Gnome?
any help is greatly appreciated!!

I've had problems with Nautilus not being able to show the contents of the trash can, and I have had a full system lockup when trying to empty the trash a dozen times or so on 9.04.

I downloaded a program to empty the trash from the command line:
sudo apt-get install trash-cli and I use
empty-trash to dump the trash without having to risk crashing my system. :rolleyes:

I haven't had trouble (yet) emptying the trash
only trying to open it to view contents
and the same thing happens when trying to view the contents of another dir over samba

Yup same problem here. Using JJ 32bit on an HP Laptop, ever since the kernel update this has happened. Also on a desktop computer. I can't help but say, poor on us users of Ubuntu, poor on us.
