View Full Version : [gnome] Get rid of desktop icons for USB drives?

July 4th, 2009, 04:16 AM
This may be an easy fix, but I've looked everywhere in Gnome and can't find an option for it. Basically, I want my USB pen drives to stop showing up as icons on my desktop. They already appear under the "Places" menu, and that's more than sufficient for me. I keep them plugged in on a nearly constant basis for backing up files, and I hate seeing them displayed on the desktop like that because I prefer to keep it as spartan as possible.

alt+f2 -> type gconf-editor,

apps -> nautilus -> desktop.

uncheck, volumes visible.

note: with this other drives too, will not be visible on the desktop.
