View Full Version : [SOLVED] File manager opens /home on login - separate /home partition

February 11th, 2011, 03:25 PM
Like the title says (although maybe not clearly enough), I've got everything on 1 partition with the exception of /home which is on it's own partition. When I login to Kubuntu (10.10 running KDE 4.6) my /home partition opens in File Manager automatically (not my user's home folder, but the actual /home directory). I imagine it's doing this because it's detecting the drive as being mounted and thus decided to open a new window for the newly mounted drive, however, if I plug a USB stick into the machine after it's booted I don't see this happen. It's only for the /home directory.

This is kind of a PITA and I'd like to prevent this from happening, if at all possible. How can I stop this behavior?

It's the damndest thing, but ever since writing that OP a few minutes ago the problem has seemed to have stopped. The system has been booted a dozen times since installing two days ago and has demonstrated the original symptom ever since. However, it appears that the magic of posting on the forum has cured my problem.

I can't count the number of times I've frightened a computer into acting right just by trying to fix it :D
