usb-mount

usb-mount provides desktop integration for systems using the hotplug scripts and the KDE desktop. It automatically mounts and unmounts USB storage partitions and modifies the user's desktop, via the addition of icons representing USB storage device partitions. The user can interact with the storage device by opening the desktop icons to reveal the folders corresponding to each partition. Each partition's mount status can be altered by using icon control options.

            Difficulty warning
            These scripts work for me on Fedora Core 2 and Redhat 9.

            Several people have reported that they can be made to

            function on many other Linux distributions with minor

            configuration changes and some editing. To get them to

            work on your system you may need knowledge of Linux and

            shell scripting. If the scripts don't work out of the box, you

            should look for errors in /var/log/messages (or where ever

            your system log is kept). If you are not comfortable with

            reading logs and editing scripts - perhaps these scripts

            aren't for you.

            May work with Gnome as well
            I don't know for sure, but because of the generic nature of
            usb-mount, it may very well work with desktops other than
            KDE.
