    Default USB is not shown in system tray

    I have an external HDD, with 3 partition. When I plugged it in, the entries are shown dolphin
    But no symbol in system tray.

    Can I add it in system tray and umount all (all partion of single USB device) in a single click.

    Can you clarify? Is there no device notifier at all in your system tray or does the device not show up? (Maybe you have to click on the little up-arrow)

    FYI
    By default in kde these partitions are not mounted until you open them.
    To unmount, just right click in dolphin's places

    Suppose I opened all three partition in in USB HDD, then I had to unmount each of it separately. It is more difficult when I connect two HDD with more than 1 partition.

    So, is there any way to group these partition, so that I can unmount it easily?

    Sorry I must be missing something.
    Once you partition a HD, each partition is basically treated separately.

    I can't see the difficulty in the method.
    I don't think what you ask is possible. Least it wouldn't make sense to me, or seem in the least bit sensible either.

    you don't have to type anything to unmount anything unless you want to
    of course.... well, hmmmm...if you are manually mounting i guess you
    might have to, by why manual mount? just wait until the machine is
    booted and plug it in...it should automount and pop-up a device notifier
    to show it is available and ask what you wanna do..

    or if you wanna attach it and leave it attached 'forever', and boot
    right to having it, then enter some data into fstab and its just like it
    might as well be inside the case..

    and, if you want to manually mount them you can that with one click by
    writing a little script and attaching an icon to it...same for a one
    click unmount of several partitions..
