Linux is superior at USB, faster and safer.


I find Ubuntu to be much faster at copying files to various USB sticks than Windoze. I often let students copy files from My Linux laptop (hundreds of stick brands) and Linux handles it very well. With so many sticks-XP had some stupid and slow USB (proprietary) driver loading issues (not to mention possible virus infection).

Confirmed on Ubuntu Edgy and Gentoo with KDE-3.5.5

I can confirm this behavior on both (K)Ubuntu Edgy and Gentoo
running KDE-3.5.5. No pop-up, no sign of "work in progress".
After "Safely remove" the icon just turns into unmounted shape
(or even worse, disappears from the desktop). But the usb stick is still flashing red!

It happened that my FAT32 was corrupted due to this feature
(my usb stick shrank and showed less size than it used to have).
Re-format helped. Be aware, look at your stick before you un-plug it.

I submitted a bug report at bugs.kde.org, see bug #143353

Hey guys, this bug is being tracked in bug # 61946.
Sombody just produced a probably fix, please try it.

Also, please make other bug reports a copy of this one,
as it is the one being tracked and we need as many
voices as we can.

This MUST be fixed into Feisty.

Is that the right bug number? In bugs.kde.org that number corresponds to a totally different subject.

Sorry for the confusion. The bug number I posted corresponds to the ubuntu database:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kdebase/+bug/61946

I have merged my original bug report to that thread. The bug is KDE related.

Thanks, I had figured that out thanks to dmitry_k's comment on the kde.bugs.org bug he originally reported that redirected there. Hope there's an official solution soon.
