Since I moved my (encrypted ecryptfs) /home to new partition on another disk and modifying my fstab, Xfce shows a shaded device icon on my desktop, which mounts the same partition (as it is done with USB-mass-storage), but unencrypted. As I have read, Xfce shouldn't offer it for partitions defined in /etc/fstab.

Can I exclude this partition from Xfce-Automount without disabling the entire automount-feature? I am using Xubuntu 13.04.

Is this partition included in your fstab or not? –  Braiam Sep 14 '13 at 21:00
Yes, it is included. –  Pete Sep 16 '13 at 4:03
