|Menubar removed from predefault settings||2||21:23, 30 January 2013|
|How do I eject a device that is not mounted?||3||09:42, 7 January 2011|
In latest KDE releases, Dophin's menu bar has been removed and the "Control" button has been added so as to cover needs that the menubar served.
SInce many parts of the page refer to menubar options, we could do one of the following:
1. Just instruct user to enable menubar so as the rest of the page to be valid.
2. Face-lift page, replacing menubar options with control button's entries.
What do you think?
My preference is to ensure the greatest freedom in configuration, while making sure that the choices are documented. This, ideally, means documenting how to enable the menu bar, but also adding whatever is necessary to display and document the replacement controls. I don't have time to do this at the moment. Would you like to have a go at it?
From what version do the changes apply?
The context menu for a device link only offers me the possibility to mount a device, not to eject it when it is empty.
Unlike CDs, removable drives are not ejected. Think "Safely Remove". If the context menu offers you only the possibility to mount, then you are not mounted and it is safe to remove the device. If the device is mounted you will be offered the "Safely Remove" option. That flushes any buffers in use, so that you don't lose data when you remove it. The same options can be seen in the Device Notifier, where there is a small plug icon if the device is unmounted, and an eject icon (up-arrow in a circle, similar to on video players) when it is mounted. Always allow a few seconds to ensure that nothing is still writing to your drives.
