#12069 new bug

NFS mounts don't show on Desktop

Description

I've been using NFS4 to mount directories from my Raspberry Pi, and it seems to work quite well (with the occasional hang on a copy -- maybe needs a ticket too). However, on my older pre-PM system (hrev45851) when I mount to a mountpoint directory in /boot/home, the mount appears on the Desktop (with a distinctive "shared" icon).

Having just installed hrev49167, the actual mount works as before, but nothing appears on the Desktop.

Just to add, it does appear on Desktop when the mountpoint directory is created at root, "/".
Here however, I either see no icon or a distorted pixel mess.

Verified here.

The resulting icon on the Desktop looks fine on my system.

Further notes, though. I gave the mountpoint in home a different name from that of the remote directory, and when I mount it, the mountpoint's name (correctly) gets changed to match. However if a Tracker window is open on home when I do the mount, the folder name in the window does not change. Conversely, if I open the window after the mount, I see the correct name, but if I then unmount, the folder completely disappears from the window! (Neither the mountpoint nor the mounted name shows.)

Ah. It's using an old bitmap icon and I've set my Desktop to 48px icons. At 32px it looks fine. Well, as fine as an old bimap icon can look anyway...

Sounds like a dupe of #9554

Yep -- that's the cause of the messy icon. That ticket doesn't address the original reason for this ticket, though.
