I really like the icons on the desktop, but would like to remove some of the filesystem icons: Trash, File system, USBDISK and Floppy Drive. How can I do that? Deleting doesn't work, neither does dragging into trash; properties has no option not to show ..
The file icon view by default shows 'special' icons for the root of your
filesystem, your home directory, and the trash. Removable volumes (such as
USB flash drives) are also shown when they are plugged in. If you'd like to
configure which of these are shown, edit (or create) the file
~/.config/xfce4/desktop/xfdesktoprc to look something like this:
The defaults are all 'true', but you can set ones you want hidden to 'false'.
If an entry is omitted, it defaults to 'true'. You will need to restart
xfdesktop to make the settings take effect.
Any idea, why this does not work on debian etch (18.104.22.168)?
