I went ahead and applied this patch, but it did not fix the issue. Getting the same behavior still unfortunately.

You need to apply 2 commits, not just the commit i posted before
I tested with git release and it seems to fix the issue here. Hopefully they will make a new release ASAP

Ah, good to know. Hopefully, that will be released soon.

Went ahead and built mate-screensaver from the latest git branch. As you reported, everything now works as it should!

I just got impatient. Ha, ha! It was frustrating me having to enter my password every 5 minutes or so.

Thought I'd try it (on Slack64 14.0), even though I've said some sarcastic things about Gnome in the past. Might be growing on me. Seems OK, so far.

@BrianL - glad to hear it. The thing I like about MATE versus regular old GNOME 2 is how stripped down it is. For example, I never liked how Evolution seemed to be so tied in to GNOME but since the MATE developers are keeping it light and simple, it's pretty easy to keep it modular and relatively small. All the base packages are only about 47MB IIRC.

Anyone else seeing when opening Places > Computer > and trying to open a physical drive you are greeted with this error:

Unable to mount location
Can't mount file

Same here. I suspect that is because mate tries to mount that drive, but it's already mounted by the system, so it fails instead of just opening it. If you attach any USB storage device, that drive can be mounted or accessed via Places > Computer just fine. I think there should be a way to at least hide your local drives from Computer? Because I also use mount to link some directories together, and Computer displays these as well so my Computer is kind of polluted: http://atviras.lt/mwf/attach/57/7957/caja.png

Also, sometimes when unmounting my pen drives from caja I used to get error, cannot access computer:/// but that seem to be gone now (not sure if it disappeared after xdg-open patch or after update to 1.6.1).

Yup, no problems with a thumbdrive. Fortunately I have not received any errors removing various thumbdrives.

I'd love to see a polished version of Mate included with the next Slackware release. I have played Mint's version of Mate and enjoy using it.

I did a quick search, and it seems there is similar issue in Linux mint too: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopi...f=206&t=123474

Also, there is a tip for Linux mint to hide them, but I cannot find such place to be able to configure drives showed in Computer:
Quote:
In addition to the Computer and Home icons, Linux Mint adds an icon to the desktop for every removable drive that you attach to your system. The icons can be hidden by these steps:

Go to Menu > Applications > Preferences > Desktop Settings
Untick Computer, Home and Mounted Volumes, then close the window.

The drive icons as well as Computer and Home icons will then disappear from the desktop. Remember that you can always access the drives from Menu > Places.
http://www.techsupportalert.com/cont...te-edition.htm

I remember simmilar issue in Thunar some time ago. Then people used to solve this problem by configuring udisks to hide certain drives: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=882105

but this solution did not work for me:
Quote:
Well, after perusing the source for udisks, I got the LVM hidden at least. The answer is in the section 7 manpage for udisks:

UDISKS_PRESENTATION_HIDE
If set to 1 this is a hint to presentation level software that the device should not be shown to the
user.

So, I made a new rule in /etc/udev/rules.d:

KERNEL=="sda2", ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_HIDE}="1"

Where sda2 is my LVM. It's gone now! smile Network is still here, though. I'll be working on that one next.

As for the "refreshing" dbus question, I think I should just create another thread for that, so I'm marking this one as [SOLVED].

Thanks for the tip on udisks, R00KIE.
Maybe in Slackware we need different syntax for udev rules? Or Mate does not use udisks?

EDIT!!** Do not mind about tip for Linux Mint. It is meant to hide volumes and other icons from desktop and you can do that easy via dconf-editor > org > mate > caja > desktop and untick some fields there **!!
