Anyone using ZumoDrive?


A couple of days ago I set up an account with ZumoDrive to sync folders between my Fedora 14 desktop and my MS Vista laptop. I chose ZumoDrive instead of Dropbox or Ubuntu1 because it is 'integrated' with Yahoo which I use a lot.

Everything works perfectly apart from one minor irritation. I cannot change the ZumoDrive folder icon on my KDE4 desktop. ZumoDrive is actually designed for use with Nautilus but it works fine with Dolphin, apart from the icon issue.

I can change the icon in Nautilus but when I try to do in in KDE/Dolphin I get:

"Could not save properties. You do not have sufficient access to write to /home/david/ZumoDrive/.directory."

I am the 'owner' of the drive and i have also tried as root but the result was the same.

It is pretty minor issue in the great scheme of things but...!

ls -l on both Zumodrive and /.directory

I got this:

Code:
[david@ASUS900 ~]$ su
Password: 
[root@ASUS900 david]# ls -l /home/david/ZumoDrive
ls: cannot access /home/david/ZumoDrive: Permission denied
[root@ASUS900 david]# ls -l /.directory
-rw-------. 1 root root 70 Nov 30 10:30 /.directory
[root@ASUS900 david]# ls -l /home/david/ZumoDrive
ls: cannot access /home/david/ZumoDrive: Permission denied
[root@ASUS900 david]#

Then root does not have access. Could there be a zumodrive user?

No, there is no Zumodrive user. Plus I can change the icon in Nautilus so it must be a KDE related bug. I have reported it to Zumodrive themselves so I will wait and see what they come back with. Thanks for your help.

Something I have just discovered! There is NO directory called "/home/david/ZumoDrive/.directory"! I have looked for hidden files in both Dolphin and Nautilus and there are not any.
