I originally started an Ubuntu forums post about this but I never received any responses. Anyways, I've got my Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos folders pointing to Samba shares on my server via CIFS volumes mounted in my fstab file. The problem is I end up with duplicate entries in the Places menu.
I can remove the bookmarks for those folders but then the menu looks ugly as the mounted volumes are still displayed and I can't find a way change their icons in the menu. I've circled the offending menu entries in the screenshot. How can I hide them?
