Desktop drive icons bugfix

March 15, 2009 — BarryK
I fixed a bug in /sbin/clean_desk_icons (which is called from /root/.xinitrc when X starts). There was a problem that if a USB drive was plugged in, then you Powered-off the computer, changed to a different USB drive, powered-up -- the desktop icons did not update.

Maybe the 4.2 developers have already fixed this? I don't know. I have applied the fix to the script from 4.1.2, and have emailed it to WhoDo. Don't know if it is too late for inclusion in 4.2 final.

Well of course there will be 4.2.1 :smile:
