Description Tim Waugh 2005-05-12 10:23:54 UTC
Description of problem:
The only way to open a document from a floppy disk seems to be to navigate to
the floppy using nautilus first and right-click on it.  File->Open from only shows a dialog with:


Yes, yes, I could go to /media/floppy -- if it had already been mounted.  But
I'm sure that in Fedora Core 3 it showed Floppy there too, and when
double-clicked it mounted it as you would expect.

Indeed, gedit's File->Open has this expected behaviour.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. File->Open
Actual results:

Expected results:
 Floppy Drive
 CD-ROM Drive
 CD-RW Drive

There should be nothing special about the OOo file dialog, it's just the same
gnome one as gedit. Both run as the same logged in user ?

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2005-05-31 13:08:22 UTC
Yes, both as same user.  I'm running them at the same time at the moment, and
the gedit dialog has four things that the OOo one does not: Floppy Drive, CD-ROM
Drive, CD-RW Drive, and 'backup' (a mounted external storage device).

Perhaps OOo is passing different flags.

Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-16 15:31:40 UTC
hmm, 64bit eh ? how about on a 32bit machine, OOo is 32bit, is there another
32bit gnome-vfs and gtk file dialog using app to see if the problem is generic
for 32bit gtk on 64bit.

amusingly i have neither a 64bit machine or a floppy drive :-)

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-06-16 15:39:58 UTC
Okay, yes, it works on a 32-bit machine -- hadn't spotted that!

I have a 32-bit mozilla installed on this x86_64 machine, and sure enough, "Open
File..." from the menu gives the same symptom of missing the removable media.

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-16 15:52:26 UTC
righteo, so a generic "32bit apps using gtk file dialog are missing floppy icon"
rather than a specific OOo problem.

Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-01 15:20:01 UTC
Is this still a problem?

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2006-09-01 15:39:13 UTC
No, seems to be fine on FC5 now.
