minor gripes with squeeze
I have squeeze working reasonably well with some minor gripes (or
differences between Lenny and Squeeze).
First: Under Lenny, when I plugged my USB sticks into my computer I
could read/write/delete files and folders with no problem. I could (and
needed to) unmount the drive to delete the icon from the display prior
to unplugging it. I as the user had complete control over it without any
changes in permission. Now under Squeeze, when I plug the USB key in, it
automounts and auto-unmounts thus removing the icon from the display
however I can only read the contents. No moves/writes/deletes, no manual
unmount etc-- it says I am not the owner (root is). I haven't looked
further into this -- something to do during the next week or so.
Second: One of my games changed -- Under Lenny the GnomeSame game had
different tiles available and 3 different sizes of boards. Now under
Squeeze I had to re-install Gnomesame game as it totally disappeared
when I upgraded. I have only 1 tile type and only 1 size board.
Third: Under Lenny -- If I opened up my Home folder and selected my
downloads folder -- it was just a standard folder with no differences
between it and any other folder. Now with Squeeze, when I open up my
downloads file I have this "blue info section' regarding bluetooth file
sharing with the ability to 'launch preferences'. I can't find anywhere
to delete or remove this (to me) annoyance. This downloads folder is the
only one it shows up.
Other than that it seems be running fine and I did learn a lot doing the
upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze.
