did you try k3b before the update?
No. I've just done a clean reinstall, K3B works now. So there must be something in the update that regressed things...
what repo's do you have enabled? doing update here only gives 1 package to upgrade.
the vasm mount applet gets the third panel filesystem from the output of mount after it mounts the partition with auto, so im not sure if that can be fixed or why it seems to mount your ntfs partition as xfs. was it formatted as xfs before?
Hmm. Very strange. I tried creating a directory for /dev/hda1, then did
mount -t auto /dev/hda1 /mnt/win-c
doing mount after that gave me this:
/dev/hda12 on / type xfs (rw)
/dev/hda10 on /home type xfs (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/hda1 on /mnt/win-c type ntfs (rw)
So it was certainly detected correctly by 'mount auto'. The partition was FAT32, converted to NTFS by the final stages of the IBM recovery install. Never been XFS. So I have no idea why the mount applet is failing to correctly identify it.
I have all icons here. did you overwrite your /home dir?
Found the problem. I'm not exactly a fan of the Vista look. Selecting a different icon set is what causes the problem. I used Settings > User Interface Settings > Icon Theme > Gnome. I've tried several other icon themes, which also seem to be missing quite a few icons for the menus.
Xcalc is there. (we need menu item for it) does it have all needed functionality?
That would do for my purposes. I'll create an xcalc.desktop to get it on the menu for the moment.
BTW, on the reinstall, UK keyboard for X was fine, so I don't know what caused the problem with the first install...
