Bug Description

I was supprise when I realised that Unity keeps showing unmounted devices onto the launcher. I searched for the settings on CCSM but surprisly the option to show on launcher only mounted devices is no more available.

this a regression . In Precise this option is still available on CCSM.

I want to add that I'm using the unity staging ppa

This is the wanted design. You can blacklist them using "Unblock from launcher". Soon will be added a way to un-blacklist them.

Changed in unity:
status: New → Invalid

Not the best solution but I can get it. But what do I do with the floppy
device? I can't unlock it. This design mean that every time I plug a hdd
with many partitions I have to manually unlock it? What was wrong with
the old way? ( from ccsm)
