Just upgraded from Lucid Lynx to Maverick Meerkat
and my symlinks and launchers stopped working
. So far (it's been just a couple of hours) I 'think' that the only symlinks and launchers effected are the ones that used to refer to my external HD, which is MOST (several hundred) of my symlinks and launchers.
This actually happened within the first third of the upgrade process so there must be a configuration file somewhere, fstab or smb.conf (though I'm pretty sure I'm barking up the wrong tree on the latter one) that was altered or replaced.
I notice in nautilus, that the path of my external drive (at the top) still says "Signature Mini" like it always has. However when I do a "CTRL+L" to copy or edit the path, it will then include "/media/sdb1/" in the path name. It hadn't done that previously so I know there is a clue to what has happened there.
I've done some googling and ubuntuforuming, and I'm looking over https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingUUID
even as I post this.
Help point me in the right direction if you can think of one; thanks!
