automount usb with icon in desktop


I just installed KUBUNTU last week and have some configuration on it after days has past. Before, when I attached my flashdrive to the usb, it just automount by itself and an icon automatically appear in the desktop. Now, it won't automount by itself. I still need to mount it manually. That's fine with me but how about those user that are not techie to manual mount it. Did I misconfigure something that make this disable? What is the dependencies to make usb mount by itself with icon in the desktop? I just installed the ff but still it won't mount by itself:

mount
pmount
automount

while you are waiting for a better reply as I do not use *ubuntu

consider posting your
/etc/fstab

and looking at /etc/hal for the hal daemon.

and you may have an usbfs...don't know but if not....we should be able just get you to edit with root powers your fstab file for the entry for the usb stick.

2) Be aware tho that on boot up ...if your usb is NOT in there ...you can get some error messages..so clicking on the icon to automount it may be preferred
