XFCE 4.10 automount doesn't work with a default configuration
Last modified: 2013-03-05 23:08:56 EST
Description of problem: XFCE here ignores inserted USB flash drives
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login into XFCE
2. Insert a USB flash drive
Actual results: nothing happens
Expected results: USB drive gets mounted
I have manually created this file:
$ cat /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/50-org.freedesktop.udisks2.pkla
Now automount works.
unix-user = '1000'
realname = '(null)'
seat = 'Seat1'
session-type = ''
active = TRUE
x11-display = ':0'
x11-display-device = '/dev/tty7'
display-device = ''
remote-host-name = ''
is-local = TRUE
on-since = '2012-06-20T23:49:57.627170Z'
login-session-id = '9'
Are you running Thunar?
If you remove your custom polkit file and run Thunar does it work as expected?

No, nothing happens if I insert mass storage media.
You definitely should not need this file, works fine for me.
I guess it is more a problem with lxdm e.g. http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3505563&group_id=180858&atid=894869
Can you try with gdm or lightdm-gtk?

Maybe because you don't use lxdm.
I cannot test any other login managers at the moment.
I will reopen this bug report when I regain access to the PC in question.
