[SOLVED] usb drive: resized partition using gparted, now it won't automount
I had been using my USB stick for some time, and Ubuntu has always automatically mounted the drive and even opened up a Nautilus window for it.
Then I decided to try to make a bootable "distro-on-a-stick", so I used GParted to resize the single partition that was already on the USB drive and add others in the newly-freed space. After miserably failing at getting a bootable OS on the stick, I went back to GParted and removed the extra partitions that I had created, and expanded the original partition to span the entire stick.
Now when I insert the stick, it does not automount. Nautilus still contains a reference to the USB stick in its "Places" pane on the left, and when I click that it will mount the partition on the USB stick. However, I think the automount is still hosed, and that the reference to the USB stick in Nautilus is likely just something that Nautilus has cached. The device name is still the same as before, so it's not out of the question that Nautilus just remembers the USB stick by its previous device name.
I've done some searching, and found that automounting in Gnome is mediated by gnome-volume-manager. I've checked and this is running, but it's still not automounting. Where do I go from here to troubleshoot this?
