Hidden partitions in thunar's device view


thunar normally shows only two devices in the device view - the root system and my data partition. i have also other partitions mounted, but the are hidden (/media/.kubuntu) and normlly i dont see them under devices. In the last weeks very offen i have ALL partitions in the device view. I don't need this partitions here. I dont know whats wrong with the system if this occurs. The systems needs some moments more to boot. There is a black desktop before the desktop icons are shown.

Is this a known problem? How can i fix that?

Here is an example. This is my mozilla partition where the thunderbird and firefox profiles are saved. This is how i mount the partition with fstab

UUID=f6052e01-9aa0-4894-800e-467018ddca2f       /media/z/.mozilla       ext4    defaults,nofail,x-systemd.device-timeout=99     0       1

Re: Hidden partitions in thunar's device view

I don't hide partitions, only whole disk, but a custom udev rule works

create /etc/udev/rules.d/99-hide-partition.rules with a line


Other id methods should work, I'm fuzzy on that, check with

 udevadm info /dev/sda
