I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome Shell and on my computer I have a usb-drive (with two partitions) that are always plugged in. When I login there is always a notification that they have been mounted. How do I remove that notification!?

Run this command in a terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.media-handling automount-open false

To turn off notification only, I would recommend that you see this.

Quoted from the same site:

You have to add an entry to /etc/fstab to ensure it is always mounted during boot. Otherwise it gets automounted after you login (causing the notification).
