I've got three partitions on my system, and I accidentally removed a shortcut to the first Ubuntu partition from the Launcher. How do I put it back?

(At least, I assume it was a shortcut, as the partition is still here. They're called shortcuts in Ubuntu, right?)

Also, is there a way to rename my drives? I keep getting confused as to which drive is which.

Now, if you want to reset the settings, run this command in a terminal:

gsettings reset com.canonical.Unity.Devices blacklist

Also works with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

No, they are called launcher desktop files ( Where are the Unity Launcher .desktop files? )

Open the disc from within Nautilus and the desktop launcher will be back. All you then need to do is rightclick and fix it to the launcher.

You can label discs:

You can also do this from the properties option when rightclicking the disc.

  • I'm opening it in Nautilus but the window is under files, it's not under its own separate, uh, tab?, on the launcher. Commented Nov 4, 2013 at 13:59

  • There's no applications folder in /local/share. Are there multiple local folders? Sorry, I'm VERY new to this, it's really confusing when you're used to filepaths starting with C:\ all the time, so I have no idea where to really start from. Commented Nov 4, 2013 at 14:09
  • There is! Mind the . in front of it...that makes it a hidden file so if you do this from nautilus press control+h in your home dir ;)

  • You know what...I just realized you can do exactly what I want to do just by opening "Files." Thanks anyway, though. Commented Nov 4, 2013 at 14:33
