[SOLVED] USB automount doesn't work with normal user

My user is a member of storage, disk and optical group
If I put a cd on the drive it automatically mounts, I can access the files, and I can unmount it succesfully.
But If I plug in a usb flash disk, it doesn't automount. (if I'm root, it *does* automount)
Here is the dmesg

usb 1-8: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
usb 1-8: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...

Re: [SOLVED] USB automount doesn't work with normal user

I don't know if this has anything to do with your problem or not, but I needed to have the config section of /etc/PolicyKit.conf look like this:

<config version="0.1">
    <match action="org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable">
        <return result="yes"/>
    </match>
</config>

It worked thanks!

I also added fam to my daemon list but I highly doubt it has anything to do with it.
