Iconizing the "Emptying Trash" Window makes it disappear

Asked by Arne Caspari on 2010-05-04

Binary package hint: nautilus

I just emptied a Trash with a large number of files and iconized the "preparing to empty the trash" ( or similar ) dialog. The window completely vanishes and there is no tab in the window list for it to bring it back.

The gvfsd-trash process does continue to run causing high CPU and IO load ( probably still collecting data about the to-be-removed items to display a process bar on a hidden window ;-) )

Do you have an indicator-applet on your panel?

Hmm, I do not know what you mean.

If you mean if there was a tray icon indicating that there is a file operation in progress, then no, there wasn't any.

There is an icon by default - it sounds like you don't have the indicator applet on your panel. I'll convert this in to a support request in the answer tracker, which is the more appropriate place for you to get help adding it back again

Can you help with this problem?
