"Starting File Browser problem when plug something to USB

Post by traga2whiskys » Mon Mar 02, 2009 7:47 am

Hi there,

I have a huge problem over here, and i think is due to compiz, first of all is all the time not working, only turn it on when someone comes here and want to see the effects, about the problem, every time i plug something on usb, on the menu bar appear "Starting File Browser" takes about 2 minutes, and then all my icons from the desktop disappear... i already try to search everywhere someone with similar problems but no luck...

If there anyone out there who can help me i would be very appreciated

Does this only occur when Compiz is enabled? What version of LinuxMint are you running?

Felicia, last one ...


In fact it occurs whatever is the status of compiz, it was after the actualizations of compiz by mintUpdate (about 3 weeks ago), which is even more weird...

Exact same problem here... Any news on this? The problem does not occur on ubuntu 8.10 though :roll:

This gives me a lot of other problem "connected" to this one, for instance, when I try to connect my Canon EOS 40D camera to a virtual XP machine, it does the same + I can't mount it on the VM to import my raw photos. The same VM on Ubuntu 8.10 works fine. Every time I insert a DVD or CD even blank the same problem occurs on Mint 6. I tried to disable automount of external media but no luck.

I confirm: Without desktop effects enabled, no problem. I'm trying to figure out what setting or plugin is the cause in compiz, that can take a while...

Confirm, I have this problem too :-(
Whatever I plug into USB it invokes window "Starting File Browser" mostly more then once. It hides my icons on desktop too.
It have started after some actualization a few weeks ago.

I have found something about it, but still I haven't made any progres :-(

Maybe you should rename this topic to something like "Starting File Browser problem when plug something to USB", because I think it can help to make this topic more viewed then ordinary title "problem with Compiz". I have found this topic accidentally :-)
And I hope when more people will see this topic then someone will help us ;-)

I followed tha links that you said, and from there i've benn in mulptle places reading and reading, did what they have said, but nothing. They have reported already the bug to launchpad.

Currently i am trying to play with some files and compiz. Lets see if i notice something unusual

Mint main edition? I think this is the brasero 0.8.4/nautilus bug, nothing to do with compiz.

Choose one of these solutions:

1. Revert to Brasero 0.8.2
Go to synaptic, search for brasero.
Package>Force version - Force to 0.8.2
Packages>Lock version to stop it updating again.
2. Update to Brasero 0.9.1 (Felicia only if Elyssa is also affected)
Visit removed/app/Brasero
Choose 32 or 64 bit (Felicia = Intrepid)
Download and install both .deb files: "libbrasero-media0" and "brasero" - in that order.

That's it :D
Brasero is really responsible for this problem. I reinstalled it to 0.9.1 (from removed) and problem disappeared.
Thank you very much 8)

Thanks, I didn't realise there was a 0.9 on removed.

I've updated the solution above.

Well i didn't revert to 0.8.2, cause i didn't know how to do that, i just uninstall it and then proceed to installation of 0.9.1, and till now, i have plugged several pen drives and no problems at all! Only it appears 1 "starting file browser" and that's it, the icons still continue visible.

I've posted in ubuntu forum the solution giving you all the credits, cause they've been experiment the same kind of problem.


Many many many thanks for solve us this annoying problem
