Show My computer Recycle Bin in desktop on Ubuntu

I have completed downloading of Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). Before writing a review I want to tell you a little tweaks. Normally there is no any 'My computer', 'My documents', 'Recycle Bin' in Ubuntu desktop. We can show them all doing a little trick.
  1. First of all Press Alt+F2 at a time.
  2. Run Applications window is opened. Run application in ubuntu lucid lynx
  3. Type "gconf-editor" and press enter or click on 'Run' button.
  4. Clicking on 'Run' button, "Configuration Editor" will open.
  5. Here I went to "apps/nautilus/desktop"
  6. Now time to change some default settings

  7. ubuntu configuration editor
  8. Look at the image. At the right side I have changed some settings.
  9. To show 'My computer' in desktop I double click on <no value> a new window opened.
  10. Edit key in configuration editor on ubuntu
  11. In the 'Type' field I changed it to 'String' and write my desired name in 'Value' field and pressed OK.
  12. Then I ticked on the 'Computer icon visible' check-box.
  13. In this way I changed all the key name.
  14. At last I remove tick from 'volumes visible' check-box. Removing tick mark from here I disable showing a mounted drive in desktop.
