Hi guys,

I was just wondering whether it is possible to display my thumbdrive as a shortcut on my Redhat 8.0 desktop so that when i insert my thumbdrive, i do not have to do anything just double-click on that icon to view the files.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

i dont exactly remeber, but i believe kde and gnome both had an option in desktop properties to display (un)mounted drives on the desktop. i'm not exactly sure where though, so you might have to fiddle around with it for a while.

You can right-click on kde3 desktop, and "Create New -> Device.

Cheers.

i have found a way on gnome.
i right-click the folder which was created for the thumb drive and then i click on 'make link' and then i just drag the shortcut onto the desktop.

oops....the suggestion that i posted is not correct because i still have to launch terminal and mount the thumbdrive again.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this on Gnome desktop.
