F15 "Failed to execute default file manager" error


This is a new install of F15. Whenever I insert a DVD/CDROM or USB, I'm getting one or more errors,
  • Failed to execute default File Manager. Failed to execute child process "file manager" (No such file or directory).
  • Unable to mount [disk]. DBus error org.gtk. Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed An operation is already pending.

I found a similar problem but the solution was for Ubuntu and I don't have "mimeopen" utility.

Hi there,

Which desktop environment you are using? KDE or gnome?

Did you try mounting it manually using
Code:
mount /dev/cdrom /media
If yes, what was the result?

...could it be a hint that the system tries to mount the CD/DVD into a folder that does not exist? Try to find out where the mount tries to go, then make a folder appropriatly.

Try it! In the console:

Quote:
fdisk -l
to find the designation of the inserted disk, then:

Quote:
mount /the/device /mnt/folder
where folder should (of course) exist...

Luck

Thor

UPDATE:
This post was a symptom of a larger problem with the F15 kernel and HFS+ disks (my second computer is an Apple Macintosh). I posted a bug at Redhat's bugzilla

My follow up here is to point this forum post towards that bug. Also, as of
Fedora Kernel (2.6.40.3-0.fc15.i686)
the problem still persists, albeit in a slightly modified form, even though the powers that be closed the bug.
