Re: jessie/kde: o,ly root can read usb sticks

Hi Frank and thanks for your reply,

I think i had read a similar suggestion on the net, but mountpoints
are not called usbX in my case. They are called userid/keylabel
(e.g: /media/baldyeti/my4GBkey). These are created (and deleted)
dynamically and have no corresponding line in fstab.

Anyway prompted by your post I looked a little closer at those nodes
created under /media. I deleted the /media/baldyeti directory, and
tada, dolphin was then able to mount a usb key under my regular
account. It recreated the same folder structure or so it seems but at
least now it is working.

Had the same problem with DebianEdu Jessie and found mountpount
/media/usb0 defined in /etc/fstab. Deleting the line resulted in
mounting usb-sticks in /media/[username] with appropriate rights.

Hello, under wheezy i had no problem mounting usb keys
with dolphin and reading their content. Under jessie
only root can do so (and the mount point dynamically
created under /media is owned by root indeed).

Can someone suggest a remedy ?
