Type Ctrl+C to quit dbus-monitor

Could you try with ' udisks --monitor-detail ' and insert your usb key

The udisks --monitor-detail show:

Monitoring activity from the disks daemon. Press Ctrl+C to cancel.

I'm not exactly sure what changed that is responsible but in my older 14.0 32 bit install although USB sticks would automount I found it difficult to get consistency of the naming convention for the location making command line copying etc more difficult so added the following lines to my /etc/fstab so they would mount the same place every time. Note that this requires accessing the UUID for what sticks you like to mount.

Code:
### /etc/fstab - abridged
######USB Sticks#####
UUID=5424-CC68 /media/USB-1  auto     defaults,user                           0  0
UUID=1002-FB5E /media/USB-2  auto     defaults,user                           0  0
This is no longer needed in 14.2 especially since I went back to KDE which notifies users that a device has been automounted and "what would you like to do with it?". Xfce doesn't provide such service AFAIK and that was my default Desktop on 14.0. In any case, the fstab entry still works and eliminates any guesswork. The "blkid" command will reveal the UUID of any mounted device.

I like XFCE, I prove it KDE but is not for me (ja ja).
As I post before, I really have no idea what happen because in the first installation it works.
But it doesn't matter. Now I'm mounting the USB stick and the hard disk manually. The time limit is the saturday, I'll until this day and if can't fixe it, I'll reinstall all the SO (the installation time is short).
Thanks.

If that means yours wasn't the Full Recommended Install then I wholeheartedly also recommend that as it solves a LOT of difficulties and hard drives space is cheap. That said, the fstab entries I posted present no problems when the sticks aren't present but will provide you with a consistent and automated mount. IIRC I found it especially helpful when I was using Xfce. When I upgraded to 14.2 which had a newer version of Xfce there were a few changes that just bothered me and made my desired configuration substantially more problematic, so I went back to KDE and I'm glad I did. It's clean, lean and mean now and easier to get exactly what I want. I liked Xfce for years and understand why many still do and that WM/DE choice is entirely subjective but since you are having this issue, any of these suggestions can potentially solve it.

Maybe try to mount usb key with udisk manually to test
After inserting usb key, run dmesg command and note usb key partition name
Then try to mount it with (say partition is /dev/sdc1):
Code:
udisksctl mount --block-device /dev/sdc1

I use all the times the Full Recommended Install (9.5+ gigas in home directory).
I'll still trying to solve this issue of course (this can be useful for anothers users). I use KDE in the past for a short period of time (when I had installed Arch) and don't like (probably is just a visual thing), in addition my notebook is a Compaq that have a cool issue by design, when I use it, it get hot with the time and loose eficiency, then get slow. So I try to use the lighter desktop, I think that is XFCE (really is LXDE but I never use it).
Of course I take every suggestion seriusly, you are very solicitous and know a lot, I'm still newbie.
Thank you.

@keefaz:

I try with the command that suggest, and the USB stick was mounted in v-fat. In fact, the USB is sdc1.
I usually mount it with fdisk in \mnt, and it works too.
Code:
mount -t vfat /dev/sdc1 /mnt

But the device not appear in any case in the file manager (with the file system, trash, etc.), I mean for access directly with the GUI. Equally I can find it in /mnt/ (with fstab) or v-fat (with your code).
Thank you

It was a test to check if you were able to mount it via udisk2 as regular user
I think the issue is thunar doesn't lauch udisk via dbus, I don't know why

A few more infos to check:
Code:
ps -ef | grep [u]disk
ps -ef | grep [T]hunar
(I use [] in regexp to avoid grep command line in ps output)

Is your home dir free of old xfce configuration files? I mean in case of /home as a separate partition from old distribution version reused on a new installation

Here is the result of the commands:

bash-4.3$ ps -ef | grep [u]disk
rodrigo 1266 1 0 feb19 ? 00:00:00 /usr/libexec/gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor
root 1270 1 0 feb19 ? 00:00:16 /usr/lib/udisks2/udisksd --no-debug

bash-4.3$ ps -ef | grep [T]hunar
rodrigo 1139 1129 0 feb19 ? 00:02:00 Thunar --sm-client-id 22e804446-6f70-4c45-8543-3c7541d0c86a --daemon

When I reinstall Slackware I delete the old partition table, I create a new one, and format all the partitions (fast format, only for delete the old information). I dislike the old information (old installations in the system), is just personal.
So for ask your question, yes its free (at least should be, because I format it all).
Thank you.

Then try inserting an usb key

Well I don't know where --sm-client-id come from then... I haven't it in my xfce session (with gnome services unchecked)
Do you have anything gnome related automatically started in xfce4-session-settings?
