Automount (Disabling Konqueror?)


Hi,

When I put a CD in my CD-Rom drive, it automounts and then Konqueror starts up with a listing of the contents.

How do you keep the automounting functionality but disable the Konqueror folder from popping up?

Thanks in advance,

yeah, but where? I looked everywhere in the KDE control center... nothing resembling any options that would disable this feature...

Do you know which file takes care of the automounting and running of programs when things get automounted? There must be a file saying somewhere that if the CD-Rom is automounted, Konqueror is executed... but where... ?

I think the automount option is in Main Menu -> Preferences -> CDROM.....

the solution is to delete the ~/.kde/Autostart/Autorun.desktop link.

You would think that there is a better way to do this within the KDE control panel, but I guess not.
