Re: Icons on Gnome desktop

My Lenny system faithfully automounts CDs and USB data sticks,etc.,
but when I am in Gnome, these automounted devices are not iconised on
the desktop itself. If I go into "computer" (or whatever it is
called), I can double click the device icon and then it will appear
on the desktop.
Anyone have any suggested fixes to this minor inconvenience?
You could try to run gconf-editor and look for apps->nautilus->desktop
to check if "Volumes visible" is checked. If that does not solve it, I
do not know.
I think that I see where my question was ambiguous. I should've made
clearer that once I've clicked on the device in "computer", the icon
loads onto the desktop. What I wanted to find out how to do was to have
that icon come onto the desktop automatically whenever a device is found
But thanks for gconf-editor - news to me and helpful ... thank you!!
