double floppy / cdrom icons


hi everybody,
In order to solve some small problems, i updated from Mandy 8.2 to Mandy 9.2 lately.

Now, some strange things are appearing in the screen !!

I have got a very smart KDE 3.1 desktop, but with two floppy and two cdrom icons.

The first two ones are quite usual, i can remove these or do whatever i want with, but the last ones are named " nomntfloppy " and " nomntcdrom"
and cannot been removed.

As ROOT i can remove both of them but came again if i reboot.

Any idea ???

Also still have a problem with some games ... i can play but cannot quit without using the reset in the computer

"As ROOT i can remove both of them but came again if i reboot."
If you are removing a file then try removing the entire directory. Since this is somewhat of an experiment try renaming the directory to something meaningless. Then if the experiment does not work you can fix things by renaming the directory back to what it was.

Thanks for the reply,

Already tried that before without success.

I have been looking at etc/fstab and etc/mstab : instead of

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom i have ... none dev/cdrom ( i am not sure of it but for sure the "none" word is there )

thanks 8-)

In the KDE Control Center (not the MDK one), there is an option to choose the icons - untick the ones which are for the non-active icons. nonmntfloppy is unmounted floppy.

Sorry Xavierp

Found the thing... but don't change anything .

To remove the icons ( only as root ) i have to unmount cdrom and floppy.

But unfortunately they come back as i reboot ( if i try several times to unmount as user the icon changes, a lock is present )

Thanks.

( i thought you were right as this only appears under KDE not Gnome ).
