#5354 closed bug (fixed)

desklink problems listing and removing items

Reported by: humdinger Owned by: stpere
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/Command Line Tools Version: R1/Development
Keywords: desklink Cc:

Platform: All


This is hrev35355.

I have the Media volume replicant, ProcessController and mail_daemon in my Deskbar tray:

~/Desktop> desklink --list
Deskbar items:
Item 2: 'MediaReplicant'

This list is obviously incomplete.
Adding any file to the tray will show one more item.
Adding another item will finally show all originally installed items:

~/Desktop> desklink --list
Deskbar items:
Item 2: 'MediaReplicant'
Item 3: 'ProcessController'
Item 4: 'mail_daemon'

So the count seems to be off by 2...

Now, if I continue adding things to the tray, finally my additions are also listed. But they aren't named like when added, but are all called "DeskButton":

~/Desktop> desklink --list
Deskbar items:
Item 2: 'MediaReplicant'
Item 3: 'ProcessController'
Item 4: 'mail_daemon'
Item 5: 'DeskButton'

In order to be able to remove a specific item, they should be correctly named after the item that was actually added.

Should be fixed in hrev35402.

Hmm.. the fact that the replicants were all named DeskButton was used by the remove all functionnality of desklink.. any suggestion how to conciliate both ideas?

Thank you so much for fixing this!

Frankly, I don't see much sense in removing every replicant in the tray. Besides, even before, the ones not added by desklink (e.g. Media volume) wouldn't be removed. I don't think it's too much to ask to remove the named replicants separately, but if really needed, maybe a new option "--remove-all" would be best.

Thanks again for the quick fix!
