[SOLVED] No valid automount for USB devices

When I insert a USB device in my system, it tries to automount it, but I get the error "not authorised to perform the operation". Any idea how to solve that? Clearly, it''s a permissions issue, but where does it go wrong? Recently newly installed Ascii system, btw. On the old system it worked as it should, but after the ill-fated "excursion" to Beowulf something isn't quite right, still.

TIA!

Re: [SOLVED] No valid automount for USB devices

Well, I am a happy user of Beowulf meanwhile, Mate/Cinnamon desktops both work fine for me. In the very early ASCII days when I started with Devuan, I had some issues with permissions, one of the being the same you mention here.

Here is a link to this discussions, maybe they are of some help for you: https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=2023
