8 In KDE it's controlled by kcontrol - that enormous config app with 1000s
9 of selectable options. There's a selection near the top of the menu
10 which asks you which icons to display on the desktop. Options include a
11 large range of mounted and unmounted storage device types.
13 I can't help much with Gnome (I don't use it) but surely it will be part
14 of the vast array of configuration options available in the Preferences
15 menu. This is installed automatically with Gnome. In my limited
16 experience with Gnome I have always found that a device can be accessed
17 through the middle Other menu
