Hi list,

Is it possible to automatically mount media when they are inserted?
From the GNOME 2.4 documentation (Nautilus, 1.8.1:To mount Media):

If your system is not configured to mount the device automatically, you must mount the device manually. Right-click on the desktop, then choose Disks->device-name. For example, to mount a floppy diskette, choose Disks->Floppy. An object that represents the media is added to the desktop.

So, how can i configure FreeBSD to mount the device automatically?

Unfortunately, the GNOME way to manually mount media via an entry in /etc/fstab does not work under FreeBSD since the mountpoint must be owned by the user, which is difficult to configure for a multiuser system.

Any solution?
