Automounting Cameras and USB drives.
My Camera and a few USB drives would not automount but I could manually mount them with no problem. The devices would show up on the Device Notifier but when I clicked on "Open with File Manager" it just opened my home directory. So after a little digging and lots of Googling, I found this link:PolicyKit - CBLFS
At the bottom, in the configuration section:
To allow HAL to automount removable drives such a thumbdrives, edit /etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf and add the following between the <config></config> tags:
<return result="yes" />
EDIT: After rebooting, all external drives now automount.
Without this you will receive an error similar to org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolic y: org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable no <--(action,result) when you "plug in" your thumb drive.
You then must upgrade your util-linux to the latest version or HAL automounting will fail with the following error FAT: Unrecognized mount option "uhelper=hal" or missing value.
