removable usb device (no icons created)


Hi folks,

I just went from Kubuntu 5.04 to 5.10 (Breeze) via fresh install. The neat feature about automatically creating the mounted/unmounted icons on my desktop for whichever removable usb drive I plug in, is NOT working aymore.
The O/S recognizes the devices fine; it creates the mount points such as /media/BrandName and does mount the device correctly. However, Konqueror always looks for it in /media/sda#, thus giving an error message! In other words, it detects the devices but does not refer to it as the mount point given by the O/S... Moreover, due to this error, it does not create the corresponding desktop icons...
It really sucks that this feature stopped working! Any leads in how it could be fixed? I suppose it has to deal with KDE development? One more thing, which path does Konqueror refer to when I type media:/ ? It shows all device icons there.

Thanks in advance for your help!
Fred

im not sure about this but ...have you tried loggin in as root.... and try to mount it from there....sometimes if you mount something as user, you must first mount it as root ...then after that you ll be able to mount it as user ...

It is not a mount issue. As I pointed, the device is mounted correctly.
It is in fact a KDE 3.4.3 bug. I hope the fix comes out soon!
