Thread: usb storage not mounted automatically in 11.1?

    No, it is not mounted at all. I can do it manually as root. As I said, switching to KDE fixes it, it mounts automagically. But
    1.) What solution is that anyway?
    2.) I'm stuck with XFCE on a low end box and want it to work w/o root.

    For the record:
    looks like my entry in policykit.conf was not correct. After I caved in and installed kde4.1, it did not work neither. Careful rereading resulted in this /etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf:
    <!-- -*- XML -*- -->
    <config version="0.1">
    <match action="org.freedesktop.hal.*">
    <return result="yes"/>
    </match>
    </config>
    <!--
    See the manual page PolicyKit.conf(5) for file format
    -->

    Now automatic mounting of USB sticks works for KDE and XFCE. And, no I did not dig into the manual page. I refuse to familiarize myself with this Byzantinian buerocracy...
