Re: xfce4 can't read USB keys or CDs

The desktop running as your uid and some mechanism to mount external
media that appears are likely not the same thing, but I'm not really
clear on the details.  Are you running hald?  I would suggest looking at
the xfce4 and hald documentation to understand what's supposed to be
happening.  It may be that you have to set

  sysctl -w vfs.generic.usermount=1

(or put in sysctl.conf) to allow non-root users to mount filesystems.

Some feedback...

Yes, hald is running on this machine.

I logged in as root to see if the error occurred then as well; it did.

I also executed the sysctl command you suggested Greg, but it made no obvious difference.
