Ubuntu: Docky Bookmarks AND Mounted Drives Plugins won't work



Question:

I recently installed KDE in Ubuntu, and to my surprise, Docky works in KDE (dunno really). After two minutes of testing, I realized that I wanted GNOME more, so I decided to uninstall KDE Desktop. Before uninstalling, I tried to make Nautilus the default file manager in KDE, clicking apply and everything After getting back to pure gnome...

Docky won't open my bookmarks, except the Computer Icon... The bookmarks were the ones in the sidebar.

How can I fix it so that I can use my bookmarks in GNOME again?

PS: I tried dragging and dropping the bookmarks (which are viewable in Places menu) to the Dock and clicking it won't open it.

I tried running it from the terminal and after clicking a bookmark, here's this error:

[Error 12:04:04.979] [SystemService] Error opening files. The application doesn't support files/URIs or wasn't found.  

Runing it from docky --debug

Solution:1

Okay, this worked for me:

  1. Kill Docky (killall docky)
  2. Open nautilus (or whatever file browser you use)
  3. Right-click a folder
  4. Select "Open with Other Application..."
  5. Make sure "Remember this application for 'folder' files" is checked
  6. Click Open
  7. Restart Docky

I was getting a file-not-found error. It took me a bit, but I realized that it was trying to open the folders with Rythmbox. Mine might just be a really strange situation, but I'd say it's worth a shot just in case.


Solution:2

killall docky, then go to ~/.conf/gtk-3.0/ copy bookmarks to ~. Rename it to .gtk-bookmarks Start docky with bookmarks showing and working.

killall docky  cp ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks ~/.gtk-bookmarks  


Solution:3

Do you get any error messages if you launch docky from the terminal?

killall docky && docky

then try your bookmarks.

Hope this helps, Bodsda


Solution:4

I can't find anything in the Docky settings to specify how bookmarks are managed. Have you tried a purge of docky and a reinstall of the package.

sudo apt-get remove --purge docky  sudo apt-get clean docky    sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install docky  

If that fails, open gconf-editor and browse to:

/apps/docky-2/Docky/Interface/DockPreferences/Dock1

The launchers key shows what shortcuts are run for each launcher. Pick one that isn't working and post the contents on here. It may be the launchers are corrupted somehow.


Solution:5

This isn't a problem with docky per se. It is a problem with the file manager. Try deleting ~/.local/share/mime/mime.cache and logging out. Log in again, and now your bookmarks should work.
