I installed 12.04 on my netbook with the Alternate CD ISO. I have set up 3 partitions and encrypted them with dm_crypt.

When I boot up, I enter a pass phrase for each partition and they are all accessible after I log in, but they show up under the Devices pane in Nautilus.

How can I prevent them from showing up? I have them in fstab as /dev/mapper.

If you edit your /etc/fstab file and change the mounting point to somewhere outside /media (eg. /mnt), the logical volume(s) won't show on the Nautilus Side Pane.
