(auto)mounting devices in slackware w/ (or w/o) KDE

Hi guys.

I'm running a slackware-current box and I'm using an UBS drive and a digital camera. This is what I did:
- created mount point for both
- created udev rule for creating /dev links
- added lines to fstab for each device, as:
/dev/iomegadh1 /mnt/iomegalx xfs noauto,user 0 0

Everything works fine, I always mounted fs from the console. But I was wondering about automounting. Has KDE an automounting feature? And another thing I was wondering having a glance at KDE control center: how does KDE know that a device is a camera (rather than a SCSI drive, as it appers to be)?

Unless there is an easier solution I don't know about, this will require a bit of scripting on your part. You can always check out Slax and see how they did it.


This is just a speculation, but I'm sure this was left out of Slackware by choice due to it's potential for messing up your data.
