Re: Gnome 2.28 brokes USB flash/CD/DVD auto mount

What I find odd, is that I have this problem on only one of my computers.  Both have a practically identical program set, and I use 'startx' to sign into both.

Both are updated to gnome 2.28

As stated above, Thunar can mount things while Nautilus cannot.

I can confirm this behavior.

When you mean things, are you talking about just USB drives or everything in general?

For me "things" means USB drives and CDs/DVDs....the "things" you mount 99.9% of the time

Same problem here. Wanted to try 2.28 but jumped straight back to stand-alone OpenBox after I got the error several times. :\ Fix wanted! yikes

Re: Gnome 2.28 brokes USB flash/CD/DVD auto mount

Likewise, I can confim that logging in from gdm makes everything work perfectly again. logging in via startx or slim does not.

One difference I did notice is that in the output of "ck-list-sessions" when running from gdm, we have "active = TRUE" while from slim it showed "active = FALSE". maybe this has something to do with it?

I login with slim using "exec ck-launch-session gnome-session" and everything works fine.

Re: Gnome 2.28 brokes USB flash/CD/DVD auto mount

hm, it appears I may have spoken too soon. while everything mounts, its all mounted read-only!

EDIT: well, its not flagged as read-only, but I cant write anything to it as normal user, even though its all owned by me :/

Re: Gnome 2.28 brokes USB flash/CD/DVD auto mount

"ck-list-sessions" says ACTIVE=TRUE on my machine too, but i'm still not able to mount in nautilus. So it must be something different.

Re: Gnome 2.28 brokes USB flash/CD/DVD auto mount

Hmm, it says active = false on my machine...although I have no clue what that means, I start my sessions with "exec ck-launch-session xinit"

Re: Gnome 2.28 brokes USB flash/CD/DVD auto mount

I've also had this problem, it is because of brand new polkit. The solution for me is to create new user. With new user everything mounts fine to me.

did not solve things for me.

I'm using:
* GDM
* Gnome 2.28

upon insertion, the dvd is not mounted nor is the device locked. The hardware seems to be working correctly.

now as I understand it, gnome relies on policykit for automated mounting now? how does this relate to HAL. I'm severely confused with all the changes as of late.

*edit*

I have just replaced the DVD drive with a CD drive, which then mounted properly :S

Re: Gnome 2.28 brokes USB flash/CD/DVD auto mount

On my Netbook with i686 everything works fine for me (without changing something), but on my x64_86 desktop nothing happens if I plug in a CD or USB-Stick. Really strange.

I log in using startx, so I went ahead and tried "exec ck-launch-session openbox" in .xinitrc and it worked.

I can now mount memory cards/usb drives and so on and so forth (things), using nautilus.

Thanks for that thought testube.

What a crappy gnome release...and also a crappy kernel at the same time

The Gnome release and the kernel release happening at around the same time is really confounding the issue.  I think everyone in this thread has different problems with similar symptoms and there won't be a "cure-all" fix.

If it helps any...the same mounting problem occurs on kernel 2.6.30 as well.

So this is exactly Gnome 2.26->2.28 upgrade issue.

Re: Gnome 2.28 brokes USB flash/CD/DVD auto mount

you need dbus and policykit

try this:

ck-launch-session dbus-launch nautilus

and this for permissions problems:
/etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- XML -*- -->

<!DOCTYPE pkconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD PolicyKit Configuration 1.0//EN"
"http://hal.freedesktop.org/releases/PolicyKit/1.0/config.dtd">

<!-- See the manual page PolicyKit.conf(5) for file format -->

<config version="0.1">

<match action="org.freedesktop.hal.storage.*">
                        <return result="yes"/>
</match>
</config>
