In kde4.2.1 on an AMD64 box I have, only root can mount and unmount
usb sticks. The partitions show up for ordinary users, but clicking
thereon just opens the local home directory. I tried reading through the
latest blfs ~/general/hal.htm but could not home in on any specific
thing to do to alleviate the problem. I also noticed that fedora9 has a
mount option for usbsticks called uhelper=hal ( which appear to allow users
to mount and unmount sticks without entries in /etc/fstab). I have not
been able fo get more information on 'uhelper'.
So some help would be appreciated.
