I have a 10.10 installation.
/etc/fstab mounts a partition to
~/Desktop and my desktop icons work fine. However mounted volume icon always appears on Desktop.
Altough I have unchecked
volumes_visible option in
gconf-editor, still icon is shown.
Is there a change in 10.10 ?
run >> gconf-editor
and after that all the mounted volumes will removed from your desktop.
