Thread: Unable to mount drives (kde3) - hal error ?

    Default Unable to mount drives (kde3) - hal error ?

    Hi.

    I am running opensuse 11.1 - amd64 version - kde 3.5

    kde-config -v
    Qt: 3.3.8b
    KDE: 3.5.10 "release 33.1"
    kde-config: 1.0

    I am unable to mount drives in KDE

    I get this error

    "org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always <-- (action, result)"

    I can mount partitions if I go to root and manually mount them...

    I can also mount usb sticks/k850i phone, etc fine - just other drive partitions i cannot - both ext3 and NTFS

    My user is in these groups

    # groups morgan
    morgan : users audio cdrom dialout disk floppy uucp video wheel


    Any ideas?

    cheers

    When I have mounted it (as root) I can then use the 'my computer' link to access drives.

    There seems to be a permissions issues with normal users mounting drives?

    Is anyone else not able to mount harddrives without root acces ?
