I have a freshly installed Xubuntu 13.10 on the Lenovo T520 laptop. In the Settings Manager — Removable Drives and Media I have the Mount removable drives when hot-plugged and Mount removable media when inserted checked.

But when I insert an usb-stick (VFAT) it doesn't get auto-mounted. So I can't access it from terminal. It gets mounted only when I click on the drive icon on the desktop or in Thunar.

Can I fix it somehow?

  • Well, I use Ubuntu instead of Xubuntu now and there is no such problem :) – netimen Mar 11 '14 at 6:52
  • +1 xubuntu doesn't seem to have the gnome automounting stuff. It's running xfce :( any other solution for automounting usb sticks? – Harry Moreno Oct 28 '14 at 5:41
