How do I hide CIFS volumes in the Places menu?
On Ubuntu 10.10,
I added a CIFS network share into
/media/pub as my mount point.
The share becomes visible on the Desktop and under Places (drive icon), which is what I want. But the problem is, Ubuntu 10.10 (unlike 10.04) creates another entry under Places with same name "pub", except this appears to be a mount shortcut rather than another link to the share. When I move my mouse over it says "Mount pub" and if I click on it, it will mount the share and again each time (if already mounted) - it does not display contents of share. In either case, an error pops up soon after "Unable to mount pub - Timeout waiting for mount to appear".
The share itself is accessible, but I can't unmount via GUI, system reports its mounted multiple times and I have to unmount via terminal
sudo umount -a.
As I'm mounting the share at boot time, I don't need this manual option under Places. Is there an easy way to stop Ubuntu from listing it under Places?
I have tried making the mount point under
/mnt, this fixes the problem, except creates another as it removes the drive icon from Desktop and Places. I could create a bookmark, but just wondered if there's an easy fix to this unwanted entry under Places.
