Thank you, I know this way it does work. However, don't you think it is quite
a mess to have so buggy (or wrongly configured) floppy and cdrom mounting
thing in media:/ ? I would like to find out how to fix that in the correct
way, and to draw the attention of Kubuntu developers.
I see that KDE wanted to have it the easy way, making it look more like
windows, perhaps, where you have separate trees for every device.
However, I think it just got messier this way. Just consider the technical way
the drives are referred to in the location bar: media:/fd0... and it could
be, that the place in the file tree is actually /media/floppy/ !
now, IS THAT USER FRIENDLY? Which user?
The media:/ thing does not always work, even when everything gets mounted and
displayed ( I have a problem playing files via kaffeine when I try to access
them on different from native partitions and try to do that via
media:/hdc0/file.mp3; you still have to go for /media/cdrom0) and the
mounting thing is even more messy...
OK, I should perhaps stop complaining here :) I would like to help improve
this, perhaps i will file a wish report for Kubuntu....
