#604 no icons when connected to a FTP server

libfm (250)

I'm using the latest pcmanfm (beta) from the Lubuntu daily ppa and I have a problem when I connect to a remote FTP server.
There are no icons displayed, just ? so there is no difference between a file and a folder.
Please see the screenshot.


  • We hope this issue is completely fixed in the Git repository recently.
    Check it out when it's possible for you and if the bug still exists then reopen the report, please.
    Thank you very much.

    I'm sorry to report this but it still doesn't show icons.
    Yesterday evening I did apt-get update and apt-get-upgrade and they installed libfm3 1.0.1~bzr1358+201209141433~precise1 which is supposed to contain the fix. I logged out and in again (which kills the running pcmanfm and starts it again) but there is no change.
    I also noticed the right click on trash and choosing empty doesn't actually empty it.

  • I'm afraid the daily build might be behind actual git as I've rechecked it again and it sure is fixed. And another possible problem is ftp gvfs - it crashes sometimes causing pcmanfm to never die, try to do 'killall -ABRT pcmanfm' to be sure.
    Thank you very much for yet one bug found. I've fixed it few moments ago.
    All changes will be in 1.0.1 release.

    Today I did another update and I rebooted my laptop just to be sure old pcmanfm is terminated and after the reboot the icons are shown so the bug has been fixed, hurray! Also, the bug with not emptying of trash has also been fixed. Thank you for your great work. Cheers!
