View Full Version : [ubuntu] Volumes get stuck!

June 27th, 2008, 01:10 AM
I'm using Ubuntu 8.04, and when I connect an USB-storage volume (in this case my phone, a Sony Ericson k810i) everything works fine.

..untill I disconnect it; The icon is still on my desktop. If I connect it again, another icon appears. And as they don't go away when disconnecting the volume, eventually my whole desktop will be filled with those, lol.

I did the thing with gconf (/apps/nautilus/desktop/volumes_visible) but that just hides them, if I was to check that box again I would see all of them. Plus, every one of them is in the Places menu.

Unmounting doesn't work, and neither does simply trying to delete the icons. So, how do I deal with this?

What happens when you 'right-click > Eject' ?

Actually, this problem solved itself. Now I just have to disconnect my phone and the icons go away. Thanks anyway.
