Good point, Eberhard. I expect I will be able to gain administrator
privileges when I need to as it will usually involve a machine I am
troubleshooting or repairing.
By the way, it happened again after a reboot with the drive plugged in.
Plugged it into gnome laptop and it mounted fine. This is the same
version of k/ubuntu. And it it isn't the individual machine. At home
I have a kubuntu 8.04 desktop and a laptop with ubuntu (gnome) 8.04.
Automounts on the laptop, and won't even create an unmounted device on
the desktop. At work, it is the same thing. Ignored by kubuntu 8.04
desktop, and automounts on Ubuntu 8.10 desktop and winxp desktop.
Why is kubuntu or kde having a problem with this drive that other
systems do not have?
