connect to server - requires GDM restart to see new connection

Bug #145738 reported by ibob63 on 2007-09-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Ubuntu Desktop Bugs
Declined for Gutsy by Pedro Villavicencio

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome


In gnome, when connecting to a Windows Share or SSH server you create the connection using the Places -> Connect . You then fill out the form and then two things should happen:

     1) A icon is created on the desktop of the share

     2) A link is created under the Places menu

However, intermittently the icons don't appear and you have to restart the GDM using CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE. Once the GDM is restarted the icons appears. This is frustrating and might cause problems for new users. I don't know how this could be technically resolved, but I suggest refreshing the menu or desktop.

Let me know if you need any more information,


I confirm this problem. Unfortunately I#m not able to fix it.

This bug was nominated for Gutsy but does currently not qualify for a 7.10 stable release update (SRU) and the nomination is therefore declined.

According the the SRU policy, the fix should already be deployed and tested in the current development version before an update to the stable releases will be considered. With 7.10 now released, that policy applies to this bug. See:

The bug is not being closed as work will continue on fixing it for the next release, Hardy Heron (8.04). If the state of this bug should change such that it qualifies for the SRU process, please contact the person who originally declined it and ask them to re-evaluate it.
