I have found many threads on this problem but still no solution.
I want the following behavior when I plug a device (USB stick or CD disk):
1. it should be mounted automatically for me. Now it isn't, though it appears in fdisk -l output:
Disk /dev/sdd: 8006 MB, 8006926336 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 30544 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x9b12d290
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd1 * 16 30544 7815232 b W95 FAT32
and if I mount it manually, all goes OK
2. if I mount manually my CD disk and then press the eject button on my drive nothing happens until I manually unmount the drive. But I want it to open immediately
All this worked for me in kubuntu 8.10, and broke with the upgrade.
