Got a problem.
With other Linux distros which I've used (Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuse), my Western Digital "My Book" external hard drive appeared on my KDE desktop only a few seconds after I turned it on.
With Vector, it's a bit more complicated.
When I connect and turn on the external HD, nothing happens. The drive doesn't show up. I cannot find it.
I tried logging in as root to see what would happen.
While logged in as root, I connected and turned on the external HD. It showed up immediately.
Obviously, I need to make some adjustments so that I can access my external hard drives as a normal user.
What I need to know is, what do I need to adjust and how do I do it?
I'm using VL SOHO version 5.8 final with the KDE interface.
