    Default Automatic mounting of USB devices does not work properly

    External USB disks, camera and GPS device are mounted automatically when plugged in to USB. This works sometimes and sometime it does not work. Trying then to mount manually takes a very long time and often aborts with the message: Can't mount device. Frequently I need to unplug and plug in again to get the devices mounted.

    Linux 3.11.10-21-desktop, openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64), KDE 4.11.5

    Default Re: Automatic mounting of USB devices does not work properly

    And which desktop environment are you using?

    This type of mounting (what you call "automatic") is done through the desktop, thus it may matter.

    And you also may explain what you do when you "mount manualy".

    You have to mount manually with the "-v" switch, and have a look at the
    log, for clues.

    That's a successful one. We need to see a failed one :-)

    Sorry, my fault, Missed that for some reason

    In that case, a pop-up should show shortly after the device is connevted,280 Does that happen?
    We realy do not ave much information on what happens and what not.

    Hi
    I don't think you will mounting manually as root.... as a user it's
    using gvfs/fuse, the op needs to mount as user with fuse tools....

    Good point.
    But it may not matter, if as I guess it is a hardware issue. :-)

    Mount is done automatically and devices are displayed in the system tray by the device notifier. I checked /var/log/messages for 'erlangen kernel:
