Get rid of Hardware/Volume Icons From Your Desktop in Ubuntu 11.04

      You may be noticed that when a new drive is mounted on your Ubuntu machine the  icon will be visible in your desktop automatically ,and it disappears when the drive is unmounted .Sometime I felt irritated of the same .So Now let us see how we can discuss about how we can get rid of this.
Step 1: Open Configuration Editor
    to do that hit ALT+F2 , then type gconf-editor and press Enter.
Step 2:
    Then go to apps -> nautilus -> desktop and simply uncheck (select         the row by double clicking on it) the box that says ‘Volumes Visible’.
You have done .thats all . You can see an instant change in your action Now your desktop doesn't shows an icon when a drive or a volume is mounted...ENJOY :-) Here is the screenshot
