How can I edit the gnome-panel "Places" menu? (I have the same SSH server showing twice and it's annoying.)

Edit: More precisely, how can I remove the servers I added through "Places / Connect to Server..."

Edit 2: Here's a screenshot of my Nautilus showing the duplicate servers. By the way, I just realized those have nothing to do with the "Places / Connect to Server..." feature: alt text

  • Open nautilus browser and in left you will see places menu.
  • Goto Bookmarks>>Edit Bookmarks

alt text Remove the Entry which you have twice, alt text

Or in terminal type the following,and remove the entry.

gedit ~/.gtk-bookmarks

Removing servers from the list:

  • You can remove the remote servers from the list by opening the Network folder from Places>>Network.
  • Right-click the server you want to remove and then clicking unmount volume.
  • Great info but I still haven't figured how to remove the duplicate server as it is not a "bookmark". Dec 6 '10 at 5:39
  • @Olivier Lalonde I cant really get you.Can you post your snap of Places Menu.

  1. Open up Nautilus: Places -> Home Folder (or any other bookmark listed there).

  2. Bookmarks -> Edit Bookmarks.

    alt text

You can also right-click the bookmarks on the side panel, and remove them that way.

  • Thanks, but it won't let me remove the servers I added :( Dec 6 '10 at 5:34
