HAL is marking all of my external volumes with volume.ignore = true; gnome-volume-manager refuses to see them

Bug #136845 reported by Alexander Jones on 2007-09-02
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
hal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal

Every top level "storage" device that I plug in via USB has volume.ignore set on it, which is also set on all of the "volume"s underneath.

This is occurring with a Sony Ericsson K750i, a Seagate FreeAgent Desktop, and a flash device they gave out at GUADEC.

I can mount the volume devices and use them fine "manually".

Do you have the file /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/gparted-disable-automount.fdi ? If so try removing it and reboot. If it works this is due to bug #134712.
