Device Notifier not working?

Post by RVDowning » Wed Jul 13, 2016 9:24 am

Had trouble yesterday also and today I can't get the Device Notifier to notice that I've plugged in a USB device. Prior to this there there has never been an issue. Any recent update break anything?

Is there some other way to mount the device? I usually have it open with file manager. It is an outside camera that takes pictures of the critters during the night. I usually just copy the jpg files to my system using Konqueror. But now I don't know how to mount it.

I got around the problem. Gave it to someone who runs Windows and he copied the data off for me.

Not exactly a solution is it? Have you tried different USB drives or just this one?
If it screams it isn't food yet.

I can safely say that there aren't any updates to Cinnamon that 'broke' how my Mint recognises usb flash drives. At least none that have affected me, and I've been keeping up with all updates too :)
