The problem is I can not see icons when insert USB devices. Maybe I
should write a different matter, but wanted to know the name of the
package can handle removable devices, but I can not find those options
on Ubuntu 10.04, should be in system - preferences - removable drives
and media. I tried to run gconf-editor as suggested Rashkae, but they
were marked options.

I have also indicated the partition number on the line I added to
Fstab but still not working.

Goh Lip:

I added this way automount

exit 0

correct this?

Add automount does not work

Something strange is that after two hours (approximately) after
turning on the computer, if I can see the icons if I insert USB

we continue with this problem in this conversation? I ask because I
started asking about the package to manage USB devices and has strayed
a bit the main proceedings. Thanks for your suggestions.
