Nemo adds USB device to "Devices" section of sidebar repeatedly

Post by deckerlogan » Fri Aug 16, 2019 10:31 pm

I've done a fair bit of research on this and have found a couple of instances on other distros that are reporting the same thing, but then saying that it's in the kernel and should be fixed on the next update. I've never experienced this issue, so I booted into several kernels and they've all repeating the same thing, so I'm not so sure that's the issue.

As shown in the screenshot attached, every time I connect my android phone, it would create another entry in the Devices list. Unmount and remove, or simply remove without unmounting, doesn't make a difference. Iphone appeared, but won't reconnect at all when I reattach it (not an issue I'm concerned with, I despise that thing; just included it as another example of something plugged in but not being removed when it's disconnected). I have confirmed that this IS NOT the case with a USB flash stick, it will be removed upon unplugging and/or dismounting. As with the other examples I've found online, it seems isolated to MTP/PTP devices. The multiple listings do go away upon a shutdown, reboot, etc.

Is anybody else having this issue, or is aware of something to tweak to get it fixed? Obviously it's not a deal breaker or anything, but simply a mild annoyance since I've been using Mint for well over a year now and have never noticed this before.

(If there's any way I could provide more info or make this more helpful to a guru first looking, please don't hesitate to let me know. I know that the "this doesn't work, fix it for me" posts can be extremely annoying and want to be as clear as possible and providing as much info as needed on the first post.)
