Htanks, I understand now, but this is to display a medium, which is
already *mounted*.

I did what you suggested, indeed the icon for the mounted usb flash
disappears. However the command 

still shows me that the device is mounted!

My problem is that under trinity is device is *not* mounted

The command 


Does not return that it is mounted.

However when I log out log in in KDE 4 and replug the USB in, it will be
mounted automatically.

So it seems to me that some daemon is not starting.

Just in case could somebody provide me what this automount really does.

Because if I mount it manually (VFAT format)


 sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/USB

It is mounted as root and is not writable by the common (non root) user.
