We recently upgraded our office desktop to opensuse 12.3, and have run
into a problem with external drives.
Our office desktop is used by several people during the day; each user
has her/his own account, and users switch between them with the usual
Most of our data is stored on an external drive. The first user plugs
it in, and the last user of the day ejects it and stores it away
securely. At least, that's what used to happen with opensuse 12.2.
Since moving to 12.3, we find we can't do that. The first user has sole
use of the drive in /var/run/media/<username1>, and other users have no
access, which means they cannot access or update our data.
Is there any (fairly straightforward) way we can restore the previous
behaviour, and allow multiple users to access the external drive?
