Solution to ROX’s unmounting problem

The unmounting problem I mentioned yesterday with ROX mangling names with spaces has a very simple workaround. I will propagate this change to the SD packages soon.

In the meantime, or if you have already installed SD, do the following:

  1. Open ROX-filer (the easiest way to do this is to double click the Home icon on the desktop)
  2. Right-click in any blank space and select Options…
  3. Select Action windows
  4. Change the text in the Unmount command field to:
    skinny-pumount-fb “$1”
  5. Change the text in the Eject command field to:
    eject “$1”
