    How to tell gvfs not to show fuse folder on my desktop

    I am working on an application that utilizes libfuse library. The application creates a virtual filesystem and runs some commands from there.

    The problem is when I mount the filesystem, gvfs (or if to be precise this binary /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfs-gdu-volume-monitor) creates a desktop icon that points to my filesystem.


    Code:
    $ gvfs-mount -i -l
    Mount(0): 11 -> file:///home/anatol/tmp/fuse/11
      Type: GProxyMount (GProxyVolumeMonitorGdu)
      default_location=file:///home/anatol/tmp/fuse/11
      themed icons:  [drive-harddisk]  [drive]
      can_unmount=1
      can_eject=0
      is_shadowed=0

    This is not what I really want. My folder (/home/anatol/tmp/fuse/11) is a temporary filesystem that lives several seconds and I don't want to have a link to it from the desktop. How to tell the gvfs not to show it?

    You can find a repro case program here http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...le=Hello_World just copy the program below and compile it with
    $ gcc -Wall `pkg-config fuse --cflags --libs` hello.c -o hello

    gconf-editor

    key: /apps/nautilus/desktop
    value: volumes_visible

    Set false

    I know. Old thread. But I would have been helped if there had been an answer...

    If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information. You may link to the original discussion in the new thread if you think it may be helpful.
