Every few minutes, I get a notification on my desktop "SFTP No storage locations configured".

Does anyone know what it means or how to stop it?


See YouTube video here:

Also check Plugin settings and also your privacy settings on phone about allowing access to data.


I checked, and Zorin Connect already had access to all permissions.
On a lark, I set up a data folder for Zorin Connect to use, and the SFTP notification turned into Zorin mounting and unmounting my phone as an external file system over and over again.

I haven't seen this in the last day (I was away on a business trip), but I'll keep my eyes open.

Just so I'm clear, is this a Virtual Machine install of Zorin 15 Beta or issues facing you with Virtual Box because of LVM? (I will admit now that I don't use LVM as happy with how I setup and forget). ;) :D

I have this problem on a laptop and on Virtual Box. It's as though LVM support is missing from the kernel after a rebuild :-(

LVM is something you choose to have or not to have at point of install. Without LVM you can shrink partitions you can't enlarge. Like I've said before I don't require to use LVM or to use Wolfman's famous phrase:

"Preparation and planning prevent poor performance! :)"

No offence intended. We just need to think what we are aiming for and make our choices accordingly. ;) :D

"If it doesn't work then don't use it" isn't really the answer I was looking for. As this is a beta release I thought it worth reporting to see if it could be fixed at source. I presume that you are not suggesting that the plan should just be to remove the LVM option from Zorin because it's broken? I'll keep looking and report back if I find an answer :)

No, people should have the choice - I just choose not to. ;) :D

Когда выйдет стабильный релиз? Сегодня поставлю на "железо" и протестирую. Судя по комментариям Beta имеет много ошибок. Но мы не ищем легких путей! Разработчикам огромное спасибо, я с Вами уже несколько лет и не жалею.

(добавлено после установки системы на стационарный компьютер)

Ну, что я могу сказать по первым впечатлениям? Я доволен. Мне нравится. Поставил Wine самостоятельно, установил свой старый пакет Office. Настроил сетевые принтеры. В сборке не хватает компонентов SAMBA (smbclient), не хватает компонентов python3 и так далее, это легко до установить, проблем не возникло. Выше описанные ошибки мной не обнаружены. Пока все работает.
Пишите какие у Вас возникли проблемы.

[Translation:

When will the stable release come out? Today I'll put on "Iron " and I'll test it. Judging by the comments Beta has a lot of errors. But we are not looking for easy ways! Thanks a lot to the developers, I have been with you for several years and do not regret.

(added after installing the system on a stationary computer)

Well, what can I say by First impressions? I'm happy. I like it. Put Wine on his own, installed his old Office package. Configured network printers. The Assembly lacks the components of SAMBA (smbclient), lacks the components of python3 and so on, it is easy to install, no problems arose. I have not found the above mentioned errors. So far, it's working.
Write what problems you have.]

@legocommando

I noticed the same problem with the original beta. Look at my post on Page 17 and you will see that the only workaround is never to run "sudo apt autoremove" otherwise the encryption gets borked. This is OK as a temporary solution but clearly needs to be addressed as many users prefer LVM for added security.

The screenshot has three windows open. Is it difficult to determine the boundaries? Me too. It's funny.

I think the way gnome shell works these days there is not much need for this as when you scroll your mouse in the window, the contents move accordingly - it makes for better space use I guess? ;) :D
