Hi list

I can't mount/open/use usb drive/stick/removabledisk on leap 42.2
with common user .. only with root user.

With a normal user using KDE desktop, it detects the pendrive, for
example, but when trying to open in the file manager gives the error
"you are not allowed to mount this device"or something like that.

The use of external storage devices nowadays is something so basic, I
can not understand why in this version this was blocked (in previous
versions it worked perfectly well)

Any tips?

Create a folder with permissions that allow you to open it. Generally,
creating it with you as the owner does the trick.

No, that's for writing on the device once mounted, and not for FAT usb
sticks. His problem is earlier, mounting them.
