Mounted drive (partition) displaying on desktop
Hi all, I already solved what I set out to achieve, I'm just not sure I understand how I achieved it, and I'd appreciate a confirmation.
I just installed Mint (Maya with Mate) on one of my partitions. I keep all my non-os related files on another partition, sda8. I keep a shortcut to this on one of my panels for easy access. I edited fstab to mount sda8 to /media/chloedata.
This got me a functioning shortcut, but the partition was showing up on my desktop as a mounted drive. I want these displaying, just not sda8. So instead, I mounted it to /mnt/chloedata, and now I'm not seeing the drive on my desktop. Yay.
Since I was trying a couple different things at the time, I just want to confirm--are items mounted in /media going to show a desktop icon, while items in /mnt won't? Is there any other difference between these two locations?
Thanks in advance!
