media viewer for desktop

hi,
I am looking for a viewer kind of like my computer so that I can access storage media, like if I put a usb stick in or a cd it would display here.
My desktop is KDE
opensuse 11.3

Hi
Dolphin and a bookmark? I’m not a KDE user, but in Gnome there is a mount applet, I would assume there is a plasmoid thingy for that?

(Hmmm maybe I can patent the term… “There’s a plasmoid for that!”)

well under kde I use the dolphin manager and just click under places…my wife says it is not convenient for her so I am looking for a solution that can accommodate her better…such as a “My Computer” Icon like windows has. or a panel that sits on the desktop displaying all the mounted drives

“solved” I found a widget called “device notifier” panel displaying usb, hard drives and cds inserted.

Odd. That was installed by default on both 11.3 installs I’ve done…

Kevin,
You’re right it’s in the systray. However some Windows imports, like that guy’s wife, want it where they can see it. So he either is using the desktop or the panel widget. In my case I have the device notifier widget on my panel.

There is “My Computer”. If you don’t see it, create a shortcut for ‘konqueror sysinfo:/’

Ah. I was going to say I can see it in the systray but then looking
down I notice that the systray is collapsed and . I haven’t yet found
how to set it to not be closed. Easy enough to open - just click the
left/right arrow. But an annoyance…

Just to the right of the system tray, is a circle with an “i” in it. Right click on it. Chose System Tray Settings, then Auto Hide and you’ll see a pull down list for each app running. Chose to not hide whatever you like.
