    usb ports not working


    Hello

    I am having this issue, possibly occured after an update. Usb ports dont seem to be working. For example if I plug in a usb flash disk while arch is up and running its not working. If I reboot the laptop and the flash is already in the port it is working flawlessly. Could anyone help me with this?

    I'm not an Arch user, but did you have anything set to auto-mount previously?
    Are you able to mount a flash drive manually after plugging it into a running system?
    And does it show up in the output of fdisk -l ?

    Thank you for the responds.

    Here you can find the output of dmesg. Neither fdisk or lsusb output something relevant with the usb flash disk.
    It seems just not to exist!

    Odd... I'm not seeing anything at all helpful in that output.

    Is it an encrypted drive?

    My own USB drives stopped working a few days back and reinstalling consolekit fixed the issue.

    Maybe it will work for you, too.
