Thread: Removing the home directory icon and trash icon from desktop using custom script SuseStudio

    Default Removing the home directory icon and trash icon from desktop using custom script SuseStudio

    I have just created an 11.3 64 bit image using susestudio. All seems well but would like to customize the desktop via my script that I have added. My question is how do I remove the home directory and the trash icon from the desktop? Or better said what is the path to removing the symbolic link, I cannot find the symbolic links in the desktop directory. It is empty, I do not see any symbolic links under /home/test/Desktop
    ????????????????

    Hi
    That's because they are both gconf settings, the keys to disable are /apps/nautilus/desktop/trash_icon_visible and /apps/nautilus/desktop/home_icon_visible both need to be set to false. So you would need script this instead.
    Code:
    gconftool-2 -s -t bool /apps/nautilus/desktop/trash_icon_visible false
    gconftool-2 -s -t bool /apps/nautilus/desktop/home_icon_visible false
    Look at using gconf-editor to browse and the man page for gconftool-2

    This did not work

    PHP Code:
    gconftool---t bool /apps/nautilus/desktop/trash_icon_visible false
    gconftool
    ---t bool /apps/nautilus/desktop/home_icon_visible false 
    but this did

    PHP Code:
    gconftool---type boolean --set /apps/nautilus/desktop/trash_icon_visible false 
    gconftool
    ---type boolean --set /apps/nautilus/desktop/home_icon_visible false 
    thanks for the help.

    Thank goodness for this post or I would have never figured this out. Could they have made this any more difficult?
