Thank you, that was exactly what I needed. I had to
edit /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf to remove "noexec" from the mount
options, and I also prefer "usbdiskN" to "usbN", but aside from those
small customisations no changes were needed.

For some reason one of my USB disk enclosures doesn't automount though.
I wonder why that is? Two others do, so it seems to be the enclosure
which is at fault.

Regards, K.
