Mounted drives on kde desktop


Hello. I recently installed kde using
Code:
apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
and I love it. However, in GNOME, it shows all the usb drives and cds you have in on the desktop. The kde desktop doesn't do this, and I'm wondering if there's a way to make it so. I googled around, but couldn't find anything.

There is a device notifier gadget you can add to your toolbar. Simply click on it and select the drive to select, mount and open external media (usb, cdrom, etc).
