When I plug-in any kind of usb storage device an error massage appears
Unable to mount (name of the devise)
DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending
and the window of the devise opens several times.
Everything working just fine, I can store files and read them, but I don’t want to close all the windows that opens-up each time I plug some thing.
For the mount point on the fstab… have you modifi the /etc/fstab fil to add an entry for your device? I mean have you open it with an editor and add a line to set a permanent mount point for your device?
For the udev rules, have you create or edit any files locate at /etc/udev/rules.d/, (normaly if you don’t know what I was speaking when I said edit udev rules, you haven’t probably do this)
For the auto-mount, if you haven’t desactivate it on Gnome If I well remember it is activated by default. But when you plug your device does the drive automaticaly get mounted. I mean do you have to say to the system in any way “mount my device”
The device is mounted
You are just getting this error message - which is false. I have seen behaviour like this before but I can’t really account for it. My camera does similar in Gnome, but not in KDE. But I can work it in Gnome regardless.
I’m getting the same problem - after inserting a USB key (checked with different ones) it’s mounted automatically, the Nautilus window is opened many times and this error message is displayed, also many times. It’s pretty annoying to close these windows every time, apart from that nothing bad happens. I’m using Gnome if that’s of any significance. I didn’t do anything with fstab or udev. Any idea what’s the problem here? What other information I can supply?
PS I’m not an expert Linux user, so sorry if the message is not very clear…
This happens to me as well, but only when I have a VM running in vmware workstation is running. I think it has to do with vmware interfering with the automount because it is trying to make the device available to connect to the open vm’s

It sounds like you’re running into PolicyKit, which (I think) is new in 11.3. From what I can tell, it’s a horribly complex and badly documented “Security Framework” – is there anything developers like better than creating ‘Frameworks’? – that is used by parts of the system to determine which users have authorization to access system devices. I’ve just started to try to figure it out: I would recommend reading the following man pages:
pklocalauthority (8) - PolicyKit Local Authority
PolicyKit (8) - Centralized policy management
PolicyKit.conf (5) - PolicyKit configuration file
polkit-action (1) - List and modify registered PolicyKit actions
polkit-config-file-validate (1) - Validate a PolicyKit configuration file
polkit-policy-file-validate (1) - Validate a PolicyKit policy file
polkitd (8) - PolicyKit daemon
set_polkit_default_privs (8) - set default privileges for PolicyKit
I’ve the feeling that all USB devices suffer from it, the normal Linux copy past mode with pasting text with the MMB or LMB+RMB is giving me a pop-up instead of direct pasting. Had it before, a few versions before but can’t remember how i fixed it.
It worked fin in 11.3 until a update a few weeks ago, I don’t know if it was the small kernel update of the update to KDE 4.5.4, It seems to be a KDE problem because everything works fine in GNOME (I heard).
I too have noticed that Suse 11.3 KDE doesn’t even identify my HTC Android phone. It says “no Device plugged in”. Although other mobile LG is very much identified and gets mounted in openSUSE 11.3 KDE.
Sometimes it works some times it wont SUSE/KDE makes me crazy. I cant get my photos from my camera now, need Windows to do it now. I’m thinking of going to another distro somebody has some experience with for example Aptosid.
