    Desktop redundancy, (with pictures...) ;)


    Here is my Slackware 10.1 desktop with Dropline Gnome. As you can see from this picture, mounted media is easily accessable from the "Computer" desktop icon, as well as from the menu here.

    Isn't this a little redundant??

    Question: In order to have a cleaner looking Dropline Gnome desktop, how do I get rid of the media icons on my desktop and only have them in the menu and under the "Computer" icon?

    In KDE, this is very simple to do. Is there not an easy way to do this in Gnome??

    Try:
    $ gconf-editor

    go to apps-->nautilus-->desktop and uncheck volumes_visible

    that should work for nautilus. Don't know about anything else
