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.

Any tips?

Well, just a dumb thought, but what does it say in your log / systemd
when you as user plug in the usb device that then fails to mount? And,
what does it say differently (in the log) when you successfully plug /
mount as root?

plug in as <user> and look here:
dmesg -T |tail -n 20
