Gnome used to load icons onto the desktop whenever I would insert a

whatever reason, this no longer happens. Can someone please advise if
this is a bug with Gnome or something for which a hack exists? I've
searched bug tracker but cannot find anything, so suspect that it may
not be a bug. I can get the icon by opening up the system desktop icon
and finding the media there, but it used to load up the icon
automagically, but doesn't any longer and I'd like to try to get it fixed.
It's probably udev. I had similar issues after an upgrade. Then another
upgrade and my system was not loading device modules like it should have.
I believe what I did was replace the files that were removed in
/etc/udev/rules.d. These, I suppose, were moved to /lib/udev/rules.d but
for some reason, until I put them back in /etc/udev/rules.d, I could not
get things working.
There was a bug report for this.

Thanks for the tip. Have run a few searches using those parameters for info, and saw several related bug reports, but no fixes.
Looking in my own /etc/udev/rules.d/:
$ ls /etc/udev/rules.d/
and looking at a couple of these individual files a little closer, I won't proceed into doing something that I don't understand, because I'm bound to make a mistake somewhere!
So, are there any known fixes yet - or simply wait for upstream developers?
