Description Matthias Clasen 2008-03-27 09:14:46 EDT
For the live cd, we want to tweak the nautilus configuration slightly to not show the homedir, trash and volume icons on the desktop. (Or maybe keep the homedir and nuke the other two, need to check with jrb). This probably needs to be done by tweaking the gconf database of the livecd user in the %post of the kickstart file.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-27 11:21:34 EDT
So one obvious question from me is why does it make sense to do this for just the live user and not all users?
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2008-03-27 14:02:30 EDT
Ah, good point. I forgot my main point :-) What we mostly want to hide is the live cd mount the rest is just cosmetics that might make sense on the regular desktop too
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-27 14:19:29 EDT
Then I'm entirely on board :-)

(In reply to comment #2) > What we mostly want to hide is the live cd mount No, I don't believe you want to do this. Vendors may put contents in the root dir of the livecd so they are also accessible from e.g. Windows or Mac OS X. Things like media, things like docs etc. Anyway, if you really want to do this, patching nautilus certainly isn't the right place (think panel, file chooser, drive_mount applet etc. etc.) for this. FWIW, my latest patches in http://mail.gnome.org/archives/nautilus-list/2008-April/msg00040.html actually will anything that isn't mounted in either /media or $HOME. I'm going to remove nautilus-2.22.2-hide-livecd-mount.diff and replace it with my new patches.
Comment 6 David Zeuthen 2008-04-16 02:30:26 EDT
s/actually will anything/actually will hide anything/. BZ really needs an edit button.
Comment 7 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-16 08:58:52 EDT
Well, we are the vendor here. And we still don't ship any content on the livecd. And even if we did, I doubt that we want to hide it behind a cdrom icon on the desktop.
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2008-05-05 02:17:15 EDT
I believe the mounted livecd is gone now.
