Crashes when trying to mount a drive (gnome-mount not installed)

Bug #138675 reported by Vincent on 2007-09-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xfce4-places-plugin (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xfce4-places-plugin

When trying to mount a drive with the Places plugin, it crashes (i.e. disappears from the panel). This might be because gnome-mount was not installed (which will be default when Gutsy's out, but still...) but then it should display an error message instead of crash.

This was on Xubuntu Gutsy Tribe 5 running from my USB drive (i.e. as a LiveCD).

No, the bug still exists... if someone installs the xfce4 package without having xubuntu-desktop nor gnome-mount installed, drive mount will be broken.

We could put back a dependency on gnome-mount in libexo, but that's not very optimal, and all xfce packages will FTBFS...

thunar did not crash AFAIK. So places should be made not to crash if mounting fails and keep gnome-mount as recommended. Is the FTBFS issue not going to be solved during gutsy?

Fixed in thunar 0.9.0-1ubuntu2, which does not rely on gnome-mount anymore.
