USB drives visible in fdisk and gparted, but not mounting or visible in /media/


I recently did an update to GTK-3, which required a hell of a lot of updating of dependencies and junk, so I don't know if something got knocked loose and needs to be put back? I'm at a loss for what to do.

This is happening with literally every drive I have, so it has to be something on the OS side (the chances of all of my drives failing between last Tuesday and today are comically small).

Here's the fdisk output:
Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 465.8 GiB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x96a0badf

Device     Boot     Start       End   Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/sda1  *         2048 943659007 943656960  450G 83 Linux
/dev/sda2       943661054 976771071  33110018 15.8G  5 Extended
/dev/sda5       943661056 976771071  33110016 15.8G 82 Linux swap / Solaris

Partition 3 does not start on physical sector boundary.

Disk /dev/sdb: 60.6 GiB, 65046183936 bytes, 127043328 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Device     Boot Start       End   Sectors  Size Id Type
/dev/sdb1          63 127043279 127043217 60.6G  b W95 FAT32
Thanks in advance!

You don't have automount enabled, I'd guess some thing in the update over wrote one of your files, check out how to enable automount for your distro.

It was that the automount had been overwritten. I changed it round and it's back to normal.

Thanks!
