Smile Automount USB drives in KDE


Hi all,

I just emerged KDE. I am a GNOME user for
some years now. Just peeking into KDE. In GNOME,
there's GNOME volume manager which assists in
automounting USB drives once they are plugged in. I
didn't find similar behaviour with KDE -- or what I
have not installed such that I'm missing it? Thank you

Do you have the latest updates? As far as I know, KDE should automount all USB devices.
