It looks like it only works for devices which have been selected for 
automounting. Therefore connect your device(s) and go to systemsettings 
-> "Removable Devices" and tick the "Enable automatic mounting of 
removable media" checkbox (if necessary). In the "Device overrides" area 
tick the checkboxes "Automount on Login" and "Automount on Attach" for 
the devices you want to automount. Then click "Apply".
