Xubuntu 14.04.1 will not auto-mount my USB thumbdrive automatically when it is already connected to the computer. This happens every time during the initial bootup/startup and/or after a restart of the computer. Xubuntu will detect the presence of the thumbdrive but will not "auto-mount". I have to manually mount the drive. On the other hand, with no thumbdrive connected (inserted) to the computer and then, perform a startup or restart and then, connect the thumbdrive manually to the computer, Xubuntu 14.04.1 will detect and automatically mount the drive. Is this an "unresolved" issue with Xubuntu? Is there any fix for this?
I saw a suggestion elsewhere about using KDE partition manager to recreate the existing filesystem on a usb stick, tried that on mine as I was not able to automount. It erases the drive but now it works! I also had to go into system settings and check the boxes for automount, but that was only accessible after the filesystem recreate.
