Open Suse 12.1 KDE 4.8.1 (4.8.1) “release 483” Linux 3.1.9-1.4-desktop x86_64

Also happens in root account and any user account.

The device notifier works when using optical drive for dvd s or memory stick in USB port …

how can the command to re-instate the Device Notifier action be enabled when camera is connected ?
