Description Myriam Schweingruber 2013-07-30 08:53:01 UTC
Since yesterday, all mounted USB devices don't show anymore in the Collection Browser, they still did before I recompiled this morning.

Current amarok v2.7.90-68-g1b208a0

UMS collection enabled in the settings, 2 external USB HD mounted, one USB vfat key mounted, all devices show correctly in Dolphin, and show again when mounted once Amarok is started.

Regression: mounted USB devices should show in the collection browser on start.

FWIW: I didn't update KDE packages in between

This is the bug I've worked on with Alex at Akqdemy.

Alex, have you promised me to tell me a work-around so that we can still work fine with older KDE releases?

Okay, let's make this a non-dupe as we're going to work-around it.

MediaDeviceCache: work-around Solid UDisks2 bug by not calling allDevices()

Kudos go to Alex Fiestas for extensive debugging and finding out the
root of the problem.

 * Work-around Solid UDisks2 backend bug that caused USB Mass Storage
   devices and iPods not being recognized when connected before Amarok
   was started. Also fixes a bug where blank devices would appear in
   Play Media dialog. (BR 322980)

We don't need to call Solid::Device::allDevices() at all because that
was only needed for Apple iPhone support for the *old* iPod collection
that was replaced in Amarok 2.6.
