Re: Can't Remove SETTINGS File from Desktop

Still not quite sure why you need access to the settings partition. It's mostly internal stuff for NOOBS. I don't think there is anything there you need to alter, edit, or even view outside of NOOBS. Ah, okay. I was thinking it might need to be somewhat accessible which was why the icon was located...

Re: Can't Remove SETTINGS File from Desktop

I will definitely check that out. Recovery methods like that were exactly what I was looking for. With the cost and size of SD cards these days there is no reason not to have a full backup on the card that can be easily restored by a student. Thanks for the links. That fstab entry does what I was lo...

Re: Can't Remove SETTINGS File from Desktop

NoobS has a specific partition layout. https://github.com/raspberrypi/noobs/wiki/NOOBS-partitioning-explained https://github.com/raspberrypi/noobs/blob/master/README.md If one just wants a single Operating System I believe NoobS is superfluous. Thanks for the link to the NOOBS partitioning informat...

Re: Can't Remove SETTINGS File from Desktop

The Rasbian versions that I'm comparing are both reporting to be V2.6 April 2019, but maybe the version of Raspbian being installed by NOOBS is not quite the same as my image, like lite vs. full. I have definitely noticed a few differences between the two, even with matching version numbers being re...

Re: Can't Remove SETTINGS File from Desktop

Thanks for the info. I'm hoping to keep it mounted so it's easily accessible, just not viewable on the desktop. I just confirmed that plugging a USB device into the NOOBS/Raspbian system end up with partition links on the Desktop. but not on my system that is only Raspbian. I'm hoping, as you said, ...

Looks like you're exactly right.

Re: Can't Remove SETTINGS File from Desktop

I'm sorry to say that I still cant find anything. ls -la shows /home/pi/Desktop is empty. Running find . -name "*ETTING* on /home/pi yields no results. I also ran find . -name "*.pdf just to make sure it would get some results and it found a PDF one level down at /home/pi/MagPi/MagPi80.pdf. Since th...

Re: Can't Remove SETTINGS File from Desktop

I just get an error that "rm: cannot remove ''/home/pi/Desktop/SETTING*': No such file or directory". Running ls -a on /home/pi/Desktop shows no hidden or visible files in that directory, yet there is clearly an SD card icon labeled SETTINGS sitting right on the Desktop. The file properties show Loc...

Re: Can't Remove SETTINGS File from Desktop

Same issue here. I have always installed Raspbian directly on the SD card, but using the NOOBS installer leaves the SETTINGS link on the desktop. I get a permission denied error when trying to drag the link to the trash. I'm finding that desktop shortcuts are supposed to be located at /home/pi/Deskt...
