Hi list.

I've installed kubuntu on my Thinkpad R51.  Most things working which is 

However since adding software from restricted & universe, at least 2 things 
have stopped working (thankfully sound & wireless etc. still ok).

1. USB stick etc.
After the basic CD install, inserting a USB stick produced a nice icon on 
the desktop, worked nicely.

After adding software from restricted & universe the automount of the USB 
stick no longer works.  I have noticed, however, that it works ok in GNOME 
which was installed with some prog's.  Now in KDE nothing happens at all; 
no mount or mountpoint etc. (nothing in /media) and obviously no USB icon 
on the desktop.

Any ideas?

2. sudo re. Admin mode in Control Centre
And along with the USB problem (and some changes in the layout of the panel 
when I installed stuff) I can no longer use my password to config items in 
Control Center that need Administrator mode.

Also any ideas?

Thanks much in advance.
