how to remove device icons?
Hi all,

I'm using KDE 3.2 and Mandrake 10

This is what happen, I tried to mount a removable drive (CF reader). I added the line dev/sda1 /mnt/removable vfat user,noauto,umask=0 0 0 on fstab.

However everytime I reboot Linux will automatically add another icon for removable device in the desktop.

Can anyone tell me how to stop linux from autodetecting my removable drive everytime I boot. And can someone tell me how to delete those icons (I can't delete it normally, and they don't appear in the desktop directory either...)

thanks in advance...

well actually I can remove them if I delete the directory /mnt/removable2 and /mnt/removable3 and /mnt/hd

However if I reboot they will come back....

Here is the solution to remove device icon
Right click on the desktop, choose configure Desktop
Now from the left section choose Behaviour and from the right section choose Device Icon tab and uncheck the device u dont want to show.

Hope it works for you
