Question openSuSE 12.3 auto mount USB


Hi
First post, hope this is in the right forum.

When I plug a USB key into my PC it appears in dolphin but isn't mounted until I click on it.

Running df at the command line doesn't show the USB key until I've clicked it in dolphin then I can access it via the command line.

I'm trying to find a way to automatically mount the key when I boot up.

I found a script that scans /dev/disk/by-label and mounts any disks it finds in to the correct location. This works great from the command line.

I tried adding it to /etc/init.d/boot.local but on a reboot it failed as the USB disk hadn't been detected when boot.local ran.

So where do I need to put this script so it will run when the machine has booted and the USB key has been detected by the OS?

The PC is unattended so I need to be sure that if its remotely rebooted the script is run so the key is mounted.

Thanks

that sounds about right for the old and now unsupported kde DE in 12.3

install the Current Opensuse13.2 and that is the DEFAULT

Thanks for the reply.
Unfortunately this is 12.3! and I currently can't upgrade.
(local it manager issues)

Is there anyway I can get this to work with what I've got ?
Thanks
