You don't mention what kde version.

kde 4.6.0 was the first to switch away from hal.  If you're running 
previous to that, you need hal for detection.

I don't know why (perhaps an issue with policykit or dbus interfering, or 
because I don't have device-mapper on in the kernel even tho udisks 
depends on lvm for device-mapper and asks for the kernel option as well?), 
but with 4.6.0, detection, at least for cd/dvd, didn't work here either.

But, 4.6.1 suddenly started worked with cd/dvd at least (I've not changed 
kernel options, so I guess device-mapper isn't needed afterall, for that).

Now 4.6.2 doesn't appear to be working, again, but I last updated a few 
days ago so maybe they've patched it to work again by now?

I've not tried USB mass storage, so I don't know if that's working or not.

But, I don't really care about auto-mounting here anyway, so it's not a 
big deal for me either way.  If it works, it works, if it doesn't, it 
doesn't.  I actually thought my config was screwed up for it, so I was 
surprised when it started working in 4.6.1.
