external devices in panel...
« on: October 08, 2007, 03:09:12 am »
hi,

i use soho 5.8 with kde 3.5.6
is there a way to show external devices (sticks, harddisks..)in the panel?

i just saw this on a bsd desktop...looks good.

or is this due to the fact that vl use vl-hot system.
or is this a kde feature..or a bsd one??no clue...
