Places I have tried:
Presumably you mean by "Front Panel" :
Control Centre - Control centre; peripherals; storage media; medium
types - All Mime Types (selected)
System Menu - Media Dolphin
Or possibly System Settings Advanced - Disk and File Systems
As a long shot I went in through Konqueror Media
I thought I was on to something when I found Kb Device Database but
that was yet another blind alley
Still no trace of a floppy Icon in any of the above only the hard
drive, and or a CD Icon if there was a Disk inserted.
I have checked the startup (black and white) page and the floppy is
listed as 1.44 Meg, I further proved it is being registered by the
system by leaving a floppy disk in the drive and the standard message
comes up "non system disk please remove and hit any key"
I have left messages in Launch, been to the Wiki, tried every Help page
I can find.
I haven't worked out how to do a search yet* but I'm working on it.
If there are any other little (possibly amusing) hidey holes that are
hidden away in Kubuntu called "Front Panel" perhaps; I would really
appreciate it if someone would tell me where they are so I can get
access to the floppy.* I am not trying to waste anyones' time,
particularly my own.* Perhaps I've missed the front panel, who knows
but there is no floppy to be found.
BUT WAIT ALL OF THE ABOVE IS REDUNDANT!!!
I FOUND THE OBVIOUS (CUNNINGLY CONCEALED) IN FRONT OF MY NOSE - THE
BEST OF ALL PLACES TO HIDE SOMETHING -* I CAN SMELL THE FISH AND TO ME
IT'S A BIT OFF, THERE HAS TO BE A REASON FOR LEAVING THE FLOPPY OUT BUT
ITS BEYOND ME.
I don't know how much of your time would have been saved by the simple
words "pull down menu on desktop - New - Link to device - Floppy
Device; but I do know that I would have saved a great deal of my time
over the last 12 days - may be of some value in future.* Perhaps I'm
expecting too much from a HELP and USER discussion group we all need a
laugh.* By the way is there some Priestly reason for leaving the floppy
disk out of the auto initialisation in the first place, I'm curious
I trust my frustration provided some humour for all, and I promise to
approach this Help and User discussion group circumspectly and with due
reverence in future.* Much reading to do on Wine and or Partitions
before asking any other questions here.
I have installed Kfloppy but still can't find my floppy drive?
At the risk of being slapped - have you tried the front panel on your
