No Icon pops up on the desktop after USB is insereted

Post by Lupussilvae » Tue Jun 12, 2018 11:06 am

Lately I had a concern with a "killed" USB device. After different gparted actions I can't see any Icon popping up on the desktop or the nautilus opening now.

lsblk displays the inserted device and a manual mount grants access to the device.

My question is: how to get the Icons back and an automatic start of a file manager?

thx a lot

You have not indicated which Mint desktop you are using in either post.
The setting for MATE is in Menu/Control Center/Desktop Settings:

edit:
automatic start of a file manager
The file manager preferences will have an option to browse media when inserted
