2 Gnome questions, mount desktop icon & launch notification


Well, after helping a couple of people, it's time for me to ask a question again

I just switched from KDE to Gnome (the upgrade to KDE 3.3.1 introduced a couple of things which I didn't like). Gnome looks great, so far I like it (Nautilus is very cool).

I have 2 problems though:
- One of the reasons I switched to Gnome was because the KDE launch notification (that changing mousepointer when you start a program) failed on a couple of programs (for example MPlayer en Firefox, try to start 2 instances of Firefox and you'll know what I mean). I know that in KDE you can disable the complete "launch notification" (for all programs), is this also possible in Gnome (I can't find it).

- One thing that really irritates me is that when I mount a Samba share on my server, an icon is created on my desktop (a folder icon to that specific mount point). I don't want an icon, I'm not stupid. I mount my mountpoints using a shell, so I don't want an icon on my desktop. Does someone know how I can disable this.

Thanks.

Thumbs up Disable Mounted Volume Icon on GNOME DESKTOP

Haluuu McCloud .. for your second question ...
to disable icon for mounted volume on your desktop, you just need to do this following steps in GNOME :
- open gnome-conf-editor from your terminal, simply type in your terminal / konsole window : gconf-editor
- and then in the window appear, click on : apps --> nautilus --> desktop, and then just simply un-tick or un-check the box on volumes_visible parameter.
- close it, then voilaaa .. when you see your desktop, the mounted volume is disappear.

DONE
