#1810 closed defect (wontfix)

"Your Journal is empty" shown for unreadable storage media

Reported by: sascha_silbe Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Minor Keywords: design 11.3.0

Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

When trying to browse a storage medium that cannot be accessed (and probably when browsing an empty one as well), the Journal displays "Your Journal is empty". This is misleading in two ways:

  1. It says Journal even though the message is about the storage medium (the Journal itself surely isn't empty) and
  2. The storage medium usually isn't empty, "just" inaccessible.

Present in OLPC XO-1.75 os41/Sugar 0.93, where the new Documents folder selectable icon says "Your journal is empty", even though the Documents folder (selectable like a mounted USB stick) is not Sugar's journal.

Replying to greenfeld:

Present in OLPC XO-1.75 os41/Sugar 0.93, where the new Documents folder selectable icon says "Your journal is empty", even though the Documents folder (selectable like a mounted USB stick) is not Sugar's journal.

The wording has been corrected for the Documents folder (see os7).

The unreadable device issue seems minor to me. Patches accepted of course.
