Hide drive / partitions from Desktop - Ubuntu 9.04

When ever you mount drives / partitions, drive icons will appear in the desktop. If these icons annoying you then simply remove it by using following method. Open Terminal (Applications -->> Accessories -->> Terminal), type sudo gconf-editor and hit enter. This will bring up new window (see screen shot).

In the configuration editor window navigate to apps -->> nautilus -->> desktop. Now you can see volume_visible is enabled on the right side of the window. Disable it by clicking on the tick mark. Thats it.

  1. Another cool trick! Yes, I was indeed finding the icons annoying on my slick wild-shine themed wallpaper.
