kde hal automount doesn't work

Bug #150656 reported by gizzmo on 2007-10-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
hal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: hal

It seems like an old bug came up again. ( look here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hal/+bug/74236)
It concerns Kubuntu Dapper with KDE 3.5.5 ( Source: http://kubuntu.org/packages/kde-355)
Since updating hal to Version "hal_0.5.7-1ubuntu18.3_i386", the automount of usb-storage-devices doesn't work anymore.
After connecting an usbdevice, the popupwindow came and I selected "open in a new window", but nothing happened.
With hal-Version "hal_0.5.7-1ubuntu18.2kubuntu1_i386" it works.
I analyzed the differences between the two versions and found a workarround.
In Version "hal_0.5.7-1ubuntu18.3_i386" the hal-system-storage-* (* is wildcard) in the directory "/usr/share/hal/scripts" are missing.
If I'm extracting those files from the older Version and copy them to "/usr/share/hal/scripts" automount works again.

I don't know why those files aren't in the current hal-version anymore, but it seems it has been a mistake.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue for you. Can you try with the latest Ubuntu release? Thanks in advance.
