I have tried both OpenSUSE 11 kde4 and Gnome, yet both of them, the file managers do not even show the option to mount any of the 5 or so partitions I have on the system.

Short of making a desktop shortcut that commands for e.g. "sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/Windows/" There's no real way to mount them.

When I plug in a usb or so, it (vfat) will ask me what I want to do, but when I turn on my esata-expresscard external drive, there is no option to mount that like there should be.

Is anyone having this same problem or recommends a fix?

Thank you
