To the OP of this thread - generalized statements like this aren't very
helpful. I have a USB mouse and a USB keyboard, both of which work fine
and always have. I mount USB thumb drives frequently to copy and move
files back and forth. I have a USB hard drive that is automounted at boot.
None of these devices has ever given me problems.
I'm not sure what you're referring to, but I suspect it's the "failure" to
automount devices without first doing some configuration or to mount
devices when you are not logged in as root.
While I have not experienced difficulty with umass, I would have to
comment that as near as I can tell, *nothing* else on USB works. Not my
scanner, nor my Treo.
Both have worked intermittently in the recent past, so I believe my
configuration is not at issue.
These I can't comment on, because I don't use them, although I note that
there is a uscanner driver that *should* work for most scanners. Man (4)
uscanner has a lenghty list of supported scanners. You might check to see
if yours is on the list.
