- Subject: How to use x-gvfs-hide on VirtualBox shared folders?
I have an issue in one of my virtualbox VMs. There I have three mounted
shared folders and all of them are also listed in each file chooser
dialog - for example when saving a file in Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
I want to hide these entries from the list of locations, that can be
selected. On some internet forums I found out that this should be
configurable by setting the option x-gvfs-hide in an /etc/fstab entry.
It seems like this does not work for mounted FS type vboxsf at least.
Those entries are still visible as long as they are mounted. That's
So what I want to know now is how can I hide those entries? What could
also be possible is to hide ALL entries from the file chooser dialog
places list on the left side of the dialog. Is there a configuration
option available to hide all entries that comes from parsing /etc/fstab,
etc. I only want to show up my entries from the .gtk-bookmarks file there.
Thanks a lot!
