Just trying to jot down whatever I think I should remember about doing stuff in/with Linux (OpenSUSE, Fedora and Linux Mint mainly)

Installing gconf-editor (to stop showing volumes on Desktop)

In Fedora, after making a small and harmless change in my fstab following what it said here, ALL the partitions started mounting and APPEARING on my desktop. That made the desktop look totally obnoxious.

Here's what I had to do.

I had to install the 'gconf-editor'

su -c 'yum -y install gconf-editor'
and then I launched the gconf-editor from the Applications -> System Tools -> Confguration Editor

From that app, I unchecked the box in apps -> nautilus -> desktop -> 'volumes visible'

That did the trick....
