This is broken in 11.2 RC2 for me too.

I'm test driving the KDE 4 LiveCD Build 0339 on my system. It is installed on
an enternal USB drive formatted with ext4 so that my current setup is

When I plug in an external USB drive formatted with NTFS, I get no response
from KDE's device notifier, the new drive does not appear in device notifier,
no dialogue box pops up and the drive does not appear in the "My Computer"
konqueror screen. However, the drive does appear as /dev/sdc on connection.

Creating the symlink as described in comment #7 does not remedy the situation.

Automounting external media formatted with NTFS worked in 10.3 (although if
memory serves, it was read-only) but it has been broken since 11.0. Please can
we have this fixed by 11.2 GM?

In 11.0 GM (my current setup) and in 11.2 RC2, I can still manually mount NTFS
drives in the command line by doing the following:

mkdir /media/DriveName
ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/DriveName

I'm not a linux expert but I'm not new to it either so if you want help on this
and it is something I can do, just ask, as I'd like to get involved.
