[Solved] xfdesktop 4.10 not showing any disk icons

Basically what it says, xfdesktop does not show any disk icons except home,trash file system, I have recompiled xfce 4.10 but no go I have tried all the obvious configuration stuff- turning desk icon on/off, installed icon sets, removed session etc, it doesn't matter if I use thunar or spacefm ( my preferred FM ), I assume that this is either a config problem or a service that xfdesktop relies on but I just can't track it, I have googled 'till I'm blue in the face!

My system is LFS ( I have come from slackware so I know the file system icons work in 4.10 ).
These are my installed packages ( all compiled from source with no errors )

Mounting disks either internal or external is not a problem they just don't show up on my desktop.
Any help would be appreciated, I like my desktop icons!

Re: [Solved] xfdesktop 4.10 not showing any disk icons

As your packages are all manually built, you can try asking on Gentoo forum. I think the problem come from the fact that you miss some feature/flag when compiling.
Also, try the mailing list as there are more devs around there. They may know what flag to enable during compilation.


Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...

Re: [Solved] xfdesktop 4.10 not showing any disk icons

One of the first things I did was to check compilation/configure flags against those in the slackbuild scripts from slackware13/14 which I know to work as expected so its's not that.

Re: [Solved] xfdesktop 4.10 not showing any disk icons

Been mucking about with polkit udisks and console kit and managed to get the icons showing ( but now I've got TWO of every thing ! ) so this must be a service/deamon problem not xfce so I'll mark this solved.

The Fedora 18 Xfce spin also had this issue and I think it was fixed in udisks 2.0

7. By default, there are icons on your desktop for every partition on your hard disk. Long ago this was the same in Ubuntu, but it's a messy sight.

In Xubuntu 12.10 this is even worse, because in many cases partitions are shown double, both on the desktop and in file manager Thunar. This bug hasn't been resolved yet.

Clean up the icon mess on your desktop:

Right-click on your desktop - Desktop Settings... - tab Icons: uncheck everything except the Trash.

Note: for this to have full effect, you may have to reboot your computer (or log off and on again).

There is however a disadvantage to this: now you have to mount other hard drive partitions by clicking on them in the side panel of the file manager. But because of the unresolved bug in Xubuntu 12.10, which causes partitions to be shown double, it's definitely something you want to do in Xubuntu 12.10.

Re: [Solved] xfdesktop 4.10 not showing any disk icons

Read the original post! I am not using ANY flavour of ubuntu I am using LFS, neither am i using Thunar I am using SpaceFM, and I think it's fairly obvious that I would know how to change the desktop settings!
As I said in my post when I marked this thread solved It WAS a service/deamon problem I downgraded polkit an problem solved.
