Re: arrgh <Sigh> auto mounting cd-rw gets in my way...

It would appear that on May 5, Bob Shaffer did say:

Thanks Bob, this seams just the ticket... 

But now I do feel stupid... Given the obvious name of that file I shouldn't
have needed help to find it. 

I will say that I disagree with a comment found in the autorun.desktop
file though...

"Comment=Autorun - the CD-ROM mounter for the lazy user"

Cause this user is way to lazy to put up with Autorun...

Incidentally I disabled desktop icons. (I don't use icons so why should
they clutter up my desktop?) so anytime I'd have clicked on one I'm much
more likely to have typed a mount command <grin> And yes, If I DID find
myself having to manually mount a cd drive every time I used an application
program I most certainly would wrap it in a script. (my script names *ARE*
my icons...)
