View Full Version : [SOLVED] Xubuntu on USB shows root drive twice

Dear ubuntu community,

I finally got Xubuntu 10.10 working on an USB thumb drive. Everything is working fine. One thing is bugging me though...

The filesystem / (root) drive is shown twice on the desktop. One icon is the normal hdd icon for the root system (which you have on every Xubuntu system by default) but the second one is labeled as "removable drive 3G" and has the removable usb drive icon.
Both of them point to the root drive.

Is this normal?

The one for "Removeable drive" is the USB drive you've plugged in, of course. You can hide drive icons by going to Settings>Desktop>Icons and unchecking the drives of your choice under "Default Icons".
