    • Therefore I doubt that, the GNOME auto-mounter is using “autofs”.

    The Desktop environments are normally use FUSE – “Filesystem in Userspace” – to handle the mounting and dismounting of removable media by users …

    You may have to get into the GNOME dconf-editor to check if, a setting hasn't been changed with the recent updates.

    What happens with another user?
    • Create a new (blank, clean) user for testing purposes and, see if that user also has this removable media issue.

    While this is KFCE and I've shown the settings above, I also checked the Gnome settings in dConf and both 'automount' and 'automount-open' are enabled
    just like what I see when I created a new user...

    What happens with another user?
    ...which for some reason works!

    Any idea how to make it work for my user? Any files or configs to compare and copy settings from?

    Just double-checked and it still doesn't work for my user, after working for the other new user, so it must be somewhere in the per-user config but it's like
    looking for a needle in a haystack!

    Default Re: Automount Stopped Working

    Found it!

    After a recursive diff between the new user and existing user .config folder, the setting in:


    <property name="misc-volume-management" type="bool" value="true"/>
    Value has to be true above.

    This corrects the behavior and takes precedence over the previous setting shown in the original post of this thread.
