External hard drives don't eject properly

Postby kuckunniwi on Mon Dec 17, 2012 2:36 am

Mint 13 XFCE 64-bit
External hard drives don't eject properly from file manager or desktop>eject.

No problem with usb flash drive.

Problem has proven true with different hard drives, and on two different computers.

Ejecting from disk utility or terminal does work.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

IIRC I have seen this in other distro with xfce
So it may be an upstream issue

Has anyone found a workaround? As mentioned, I can unmount/eject using terminal or diskutility, but it's rather annoying to have to do so every time...
