Re: Problems with hal, devices and udev

When I plug in a USB device, I immediately see some harddisk access

similar on your system?

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...

This has reminded me of something else: Check if the option "Enable HAL
Backend" is activated in the "KDE Control Center > Peripherals > Storage
Media > Advanced" menu. I do not remember anymore if this was activated
automatically or if I had to do it manually. The "Notifications" menu
might also be relevant.


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
about the problem ....

I think this is an unrelated bug. I also "lost" my devices in konqueror
when I went from hotplug to udev. Now I get a "Protocol not supported"
error whenever I click on the devices icon, but my pluggable device
icons on the desktop still work. Therefore I think you don't have to
worry about this right now.
