Problem with zip drive in 3.5 [Solved]

Postby sjeter » Sun Aug 03, 2008 1:16

I have an icon that looks like a floppy disk - it's identified as "Zip Drive - Unmounted Zip Disk". When I insert the disk, I get two windows - one for KDE Daemon, and when I select "Open in new window", I get the following error message:

Could not start process Unable to create io-slave: klauncher said: Unknown protocol".

The Konqueror window path is "system:/media/sdc".

A second icon shows up for "250M Removable media" and the second window shows the files for path "system:/media/sdc-1".

When I searched for the error message, I found this:

http://www.sabayonlinux.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=12995&p=74094&hilit=kio+slave#p74094


which looks like it would get rid of the error message, but I'd still have two icons.

I modified /etc/fstab as follows:

cat /etc/fstab
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 user_xattr 1 1
UUID=9e134c28-2274-418d-a67c-18a52390bc8a /boot ext3 user_xattr 1 2
/dev/shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sdc-1 /media/zip250 auto noauto,user 0 0


but I don't know how to or what to modify to make it ignore the first zip drive.

Previously I was running 3.4e and didn't have this problem.

Please advise - TIA.

When the window came up for the zip drive that looks like a floppy, I clicked by the red X for "Do Nothing"; then I ticked the box for "Always do this for this type of media".
