Tried again with host gx780.

openSUSE 13.1 with KDE4 works as expected

openSUSE 42.1 with TDE 14.0.4 doesn't notify either USB sticks or OM discs

Debian Stretch with TDE 14.0.4 doesn't notify either USB sticks or OM discs

openSUSE 42.2 with KDE3 works as expected

openSUSE Tumbleweed with KDE3 or Plasma 5 works as expected
