LMDE Boots, but ERROR message when I click /Home

Post by lkraemer » Wed Jun 06, 2012 10:30 pm

I've installed LMDE on two different computers. Each runs perfect, but I've discovered a problem with both computers. As soon as LMDE is
finished booting and all the Icons are on the display, I double Left Click on the /Home Icon. The system HANGS, I can't click on any
other Desktop Icon. But, after about 30 seconds to 60 seconds I get a Launcher Error with Message about not being able to open the folder,
then the folder opens.

From that point all Icons are active again, and I can click on File System and get a listing in Thunar of the files on the Hard Drive.
From that point everything works perfectly.

It doesn't seem to matter what Icon on the Desktop I click first, I always have to go through the cycle of getting an error message or two messages
then everything works.

Has anyone else discovered this problem? What is the FIX?

NOTE: My systems do the same thing when running my LiveDVD!!!!!!

Could you make a script launcher?

#! /bin/bash
thunar /home

Make it executable
chmod +x thunar.sh
