No I havn't, but as there is no problem with (the new install on the 
other machine) it appears to be something wrong with the install on the 
machine with a problem.

I have to admit that I have had a terrible problem installing anything on this 
machine with an Asus M2N-X Plus mobo, having had to use extraordinary 
incantations of kernel options to get the install cd's to boot.

Post install of xubuntu 12.04 and before I installed TDE I had problems 
booting because in with the harddrives I had One pata one, and the machine 
insisted on loading pata first which screwed up the drive order (sata should 
be loaded first). I fixed that in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules, but had also 
removed some packages which I thought may have been responsible for the boot 
up problems, mainly pmount, gvfs-backends, and cryptsetup.

Having got it to boot ok I then installed TDE which has been working 
fine. Then I gor the usb harddrive and found the plugged media notifier 
problem. I actually found it again as inserted dvds didn't bring it up 
either, but I hadn't bothered about that as I could simply open the video dvd 
in kaffeine.

To try and resolve the problem I reinstalled pmount and gvfs-backends but not 
cryptsetup as that messed with the harddive loading order again. I also 
compared synaptics package list on the new install with the packages 
installedon the machine with the problem, which resulted in me installing a 
bunch of packages which appeared to be missing on the machine with the 
problem, but none of this has resolved the problem.

I am wondering if some necessary links that TDE creates when installing are 
missing due to pmount, etc not being there when TDE was installed, and me 
having reinstalled pmount and the other things after TDE was installed is 
effectively a waste of time as the the links (if there are supposed to be 
any) are not there.

Well that's how it stands at the moment. I somehow think that I'm going to end 
up having to reinstall TDE default settings and the desktop to see if that 
will resolve the problem.

All the best,
