Automounting still doesn't work...

I previously posted the following but to the wrong thread so you
probably didn't notice it.


What has changed between 12.2 and 12.3 for

* kde's systemsetting -> removable devices

* udev rules

In 'removable devices' there are settings which may have been reset with
the new system and which would turn off the "expected" behaviour:

[X] Enable automatic mounting of removable media
When this is unchecked, no device automounting of any kind will
happen, regardless of anything selected in the Device Overrides

[ ] Only automatically mount removable media that has been manually
mounted before
When this is checked, KDE will only automatically mount devices it
remembers. A device is “remembered” if it has ever been mounted
before; e.g. Plugging in a USB media player to charge is not
sufficient to “remember” it. If the files are not accessed, KDE
will not automatically mount the player next time it is seen. Once
they have been accessed, however, KDE will remember to
automatically make the contents accessible to your system.

[x] Mount all removable media at login
If any removable storage devices are connected to your system when
you login to your desktop, KDE will automatically make the
contents available to your system for other programs to read.

[x] Automatically mount removable media when attached
When this is checked, KDE will automatically make the contents of
any storage device available to the system when it is plugged in
or attached.

The first "Enable .." and the last "Automatically..." are key.
