Customize icons on ubuntu desktop

One thing I want to do for a long time is remove mounted partition icons that default show on my ubuntu desktop. Nothing wrong with those icons, it's just too many icons and some I never go to browse into it. Now what to do. Open gconf-editor by hit [Alt+F2] and type gconf-editor. Go to apps->nautilus->desktop then check out "volume_visible".

You can also customize others as you want like adding computer and trash icon to your desktop.

Don't wanna sound like a smartass but I think you can remove mounted items by simply right clicking the desktop then change desktop background where there should be a tab which shows which icons to enable for mounted types.

I wouldn't know the terminal way cuz im still a noob :)

hope that helped
