I originally started an Ubuntu forums post about this but I never received any responses. Anyways, I've got my Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos folders pointing to Samba shares on my server via CIFS volumes mounted in my fstab file. The problem is I end up with duplicate entries in the Places menu.
I can remove the bookmarks for those folders but then the menu looks ugly as the mounted volumes are still displayed and I can't find a way change their icons in the menu. I've circled the offending menu entries in the screenshot. How can I hide them?
You can hide the volumes in Places Menu.Type the following in terminal to create a new file hide-partitions.rules under /etc/udev/rules.d
sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/hide-partitions.rules
Now copy/paste the following to hide-partitions.rules
Save the file and close it.
Now we are going to hide the partition sda6(Stuffs) from Places Menu.
Edit the fstab file
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
Put a # in front of the line
UUID=B630D52430D4EC7D /media/sda6 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_IN 0 0
So it becomes
#UUID=B630D52430D4EC7D /media/sda6 ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_IN 0 0
Save the file.
Reboot the sytem.
Now the volume Stuffs will be removed from the Places Menu.
