Since I installed LMDE I had some problems with pendrives or memory cards to "appear" (on desktop and in nautilus), but when it didn't appear, I just replugged it and storage appeared. But then, maybe after some upgrades, or maybe i installed some weird package, usb/sd won't appear anymore.
I am able to manually mount device, but I want to know why it stopped working.
I googled, searched forums and tried to understand what happens after plugging in usb flash drive.
Looked into hal policy, added myself to plugdev group, installed new kernel, reconfigured kexec-tool, run manually hald, and maybe even something else...
(weird things i noticed are that: gnome-volume-manager doesn't exist in repositories AND hal isnt running defaultly)
- dmesg says it sees, identifies, (usb-storage does device scan) and all seems ok
- udev sees my device, adds devices into /dev (as /dev/sdb and /dev/sdb1 ... )
- lsusb has the device
- lshal has the device
- there are no messages on d-bus concering this.
Thanks for any help:) (Mostly I'm curious why it stopped working, where is problem, etc.)
