Gnome, KDE…?



Edit the file “/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.vendor/%gconf-tree.xml”. For example, to hide the “home” dir, insert “<entry name=“home_icon_visible” mtime=“1256658877” type=“bool” value=“false”/>” after line 381.

    Launch the gconf-editor, then go to /apps/nautilus/desktop and delete what you don’t need.
