Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439166
better livecd desktop arrangement
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:32:18 EST
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.
So one obvious question from me is why does it make sense to do this for just
the live user and not all users?
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
Then I'm entirely on board :-)

Proposed patch for livecd-tools-015 hiding homedir, trash and volumes icons

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
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.

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
I believe the mounted livecd is gone now.
