I need to remove a drive Icon From "Computer-File Browser"
I am having some difficulty with a USB Flash and have somehow created a permanent icon in this folder that matches the origial mount name. The shape of the icon is the same as a CD ROM. I need the permission of "unknown" to delete it. How do I get rid of this folder?
I'm Using Gnome with Nautilus.
Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the reply!
I'm using Mandriva 08 and gksu nautilus is not recognized. It has Gnome and Nautilus. I'm working on problem of that I can manually mount a Flash drive but it will not create the correct icon to acccess it in "Computer file-browser'. Some how I created an icon that has the name of the mount I used and it does not disappear when you remove the Flash drive. I have all the modules as far as I know of for it to work.
As I mentioned earlier, you must have root privileges to delete that Icon. Open Terminal and cd to the location having that Icon. Execute rm command to delete it.
su - cd path/of/folder ls
rm -rf icon_name
Thanks for the Help
I ended up reinstalling my system and the hot plugging utility works fine now. It must have been a dynamic Library issue. If I had not have reinstalled, how would I have found the "Computer file Browser window" path? It is not a user file?
Thanks again for your help. I see your posts all the time and you are a great help to the Linux community.
Linux filesystem is different from Windows and there is nothing virtual ( a very few exceptions ) in it. Everything in Linux is considered as file only and you can track file path easily. Check /media folder in your fresh installation.
