Device Manager

Device Manager

Description:

This applet is discontinued!! Since I'm now working directly on the KDE's Device Notifier I won't add any new feature to this one. I'll fix serious bugs, though.


This is an applet that lets you mount, umount, open your devices.
It has a capacity bar to show the free space, and avoids the ugly window that pops up when you open a device with more than one action in the standard Device Notifier.
It can show all the devices instead of the removable ones only and can do the automount.

I hope you like it!

WARNING! With KDE previous than 4.3 and dark plasma themes you won't be able to read the labels cause the font is dark too.

 Localization?

So, would you like your applet to communicate with the users with the languages from all over the world? ;)
How about i18n support?

 Automounting only removables

 
 by nobange on: Nov 16 2009
 
Score 50%

I'd like the applet to automount only removable devices, since I have a few hdd partitions, which I don't want to mount. For now, the applet tries to mount them and asks for root password all the time. Please fix this or add an option in the config to avoid mounting not-removable devices.

OK, I checked "Show only removable devices" and it works kinda I wish. Hope after reboot it will be still working that way. Small suggestion: this option as default should be checked for the applet to be more "removable-oriented". Thanks for the applet anyway :)

 Plasma desk freezes

 
 by pierat on: Nov 25 2009

Hi

I really love this thing, especially the automatic closing of the message window!

There are two users on my machine, for one of which the device manager works perfectly. The other user's desktop freezes completely when I try to add it to the control panel. I already checked file permission and made sure that both users are members in the same groups, but I had no luck till now.

Can you make any sense out of this?

it's difficult to say what it could be without other information. could you please start plasma-desktop in the console, then add the device manager and post the output here or on a pastebin?

It is strange, but the problem vanished somehow. I really don't know what happened, but I removed the application again and reinstalled it from scratch. This time I was able to install it to both user's desktops without any problem.

I have to admit that I installed some other programs before I did this re-installation. It might very well be that some of the programs I installed brought some libs along that made the difference. (Although I would have expected "configure" to check dependencies before compiling the sources.)

Anyway: the device manager works perfectly now for all users on that system. :-)

Maybe I can help. As soon as I add plasmoid-desktopmanager the CPU load of plasma, HAL and dbus go up to 100%. Running dbus-monitor on the system bus reveals continuous output of:

...
signal sender=org.freedesktop.DBus -> dest=(null destination) serial=483 path=/org/freedesktop/DBus; interface=org.freedesktop.DBus; member=NameOwnerChanged
string ":1.2582"
string ""
string ":1.2582"
signal sender=org.freedesktop.DBus -> dest=(null destination) serial=484 path=/org/freedesktop/DBus; interface=org.freedesktop.DBus; member=NameOwnerChanged
string ":1.2582"
string ":1.2582"
string ""
signal sender=org.freedesktop.DBus -> dest=(null destination) serial=485 path=/org/freedesktop/DBus; interface=org.freedesktop.DBus; member=NameOwnerChanged
string ":1.2581"
string ":1.2581"
string ""
...

This happened on an openSUSE 11.1 i586, and still happens after an update to 11.2.

I know know of at least one more person having the same problem on an openSUSE box.

could it be that you use automount and you have encrypted volumes?

No encrypted disks were involved.

I had the same problem: the cause was the option to show also non-removable devices, which is enabled by default.
I managed to disable this option (even if plasma was so sloooooow... ;-) ) and everything went ok.

i don't know what you're talking about, sorry :)
the plasmoid doesn't care about low level things. it is all up to the libraries. i think you should look at solid.

simply

Fam(old)=Gamin(new)

your plasmoid with fam = works
your plasmoid with Gamin = no works

Could you add an option to format removable devices, like pendrives?
Only for removable devices, in ext2-3, fat16-32 using "mkfs" for example, and with confirmation dialog for the action for more safety.
Thank you for this excellent plasmoid.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
