Ok, there are a lot of mails, but I will see if I find something.

yes but not the icon. It's strange to me, because in my box at home, appears a 
nice windows asking about what to do with the device...

well, the last messages aren't about any of udev, etc.

Ok, it's active. It's ok, very ok to comment it because I have the suspicious 
that it's a stupid thing. I have realized that in konqueror I have not any 
devices i the toolbar of the left, and I don't know why. Maybe it's something
