help for find my DVD on IRIX onyx4

Unread postby jmjsgi » Wed Dec 07, 2016 1:03 pm

Hello,
I have a onyx4 ultimatevision with a DVD reader.
I would like test a fire version 7 on, but after installation the desktop change with a discreet interface.
With my root account I restarted the interface with "chkconfig desktop on"
I also restarted the media with "chkconfig mediad on".
Now, the icon of my DVD player does not appear anymore and I can no longer use my reader.
Can you help me ?

There should be a directory in your home folder with the name ~/.desktop-<manchinename> where machinename is your Onyx4 hostname. This directory will contain files and links to devices.
I usually check in other users .desktop directory if there are things missing. Perhaps making a new user and look for changes in that directory will reveal the link to the DVD player, so you can recreate it.

Or login as root, not the discreet mutant desktop setup
