This is a post I put up over at the Ubuntu Forums, but I thought I'd throw it up here too in case someone might know the answer. I'm thinking this is a good one for me to ask Fred. If anyone has a clue on this let me know. I'm totally stumped.
I've got a question pertaining to a change I noticed in Hardy. Let me give you my setup first. I am running a Tri-boot system with Windows XP, Edubuntu 8.04, and Linux Mint Daryna (based on Gutsy Gibbon).
In the past with both Gutsy Gibbon and Mint Daryna I have always mounted my other partitions in /media in folders named after what they are. For example in my Mint installation I have my Windows partition mounted in /media/Windows. So in the Places menu it simply says Windows. When I open a Nautilus window over in the left pane under places in says Windows. I like this. It makes it easy to identify what partitions are what by having the mounted folder names display in this fashion.
Now here is my problem. In Hardy (my Edubuntu installation) in the Places menu, and in the Nautilus Places pane it is not displayed this way. It just says something like "35 gig partition" for Windows, instead of "Windows". All my partitions are doing this. Yet when I look in /media all are mounting in the correct folders just as I've assigned in fstab. So what gives with the Places menu. Does Hardy no longer use the mount folder name in Places?
Any guidance is appreciated, and if you are having the same issue let me know here. If I find the answer somewhere else I'll post back.
