    Default Device Icons on desktop

    Where can I find the setting to allow device icons on the desktop for things like usb drives, cdroms etc?

    In KDE4 open dolphin go to Desktop Folder right click in a blank area Create New select Link To Device.
    Not sure about Gnome.

    Thanks for that.
    Should have mentioned that I am using KDE 4.

    Anyway - my external usb hard drive is not listed in devices so I had to create a link to the drive which is located in the media folder at root.
    Is there a way (as in kde3) to have the cdrom icon appear on the desktop if a disk is inserted?

    Also - any way to automount the hard drive at boot?
    Can't seem to find a setting for this either.
