When you press Ctrl-F there's a non-intrusive search form at the bottom of the

If you click on a .deb file it would open with GDebi install. Or you could 
right-click on it and select "Open with".

That's a bug (or missing feature). I think it's possible to set it up in 
System Settings/Hardware/Device Actions but I spend more than an hour 
yesterday trying to figure out how to make it offer to open Partition Manager 
when I attached a removeable disk, all to no avail.
I just noticed that when you hover the CD-ROM entry in the Device Notifier 
popup it says "Play Audio CD with Amarok" so it sees it as an audio CD but 
there's only one option :-/
Well just ignore the Device Notifier popup, open Dolphin and write audiocd:/ 
as the file path. You'll have to RMB-click just to the right of the path name 
first if it is set to showing "bread crumbs".
Otherwise file a bug report at launchpad.

Yeah, that KCM is rather flaky and has been for a while.
File a bug report at There's probably already one there ;-)

Dropbox and my thumb drive had an epic battle. Dropbox won.
