Default USB Automount WORKS!!!
I got automount to work on Gnome !!!!

Perhaps ... Check out what I wrote at the bottom, as that may be the solution rather than the intial one I had ......

{
The answer was here
http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/docs/halfaq.html

simply add this line and restart

gnome_enable="YES"

to /etc/rc.conf

}

................... PS ... I did get a bit carried away ... upon having a second look .. it sort of works ... here is what you have to do

You have to manually use the rescan tray under KDE. Once it has detected the device, click the "automount" checkbox for that device. NOW whenever you attach that device, and rescan the device will be detected in Gnome and it will be mounted and the file manager opens.

So Gnome still has its problems, but ...


Sigh .....

If I disable #gdm_enable and add gnome_enable="YES" indeed this fixes automount in gnome3. I can simply plug in any flash drive and it is mounted!!

After further investigation it was only working with gnome_enable because I was turning off fastboot. The culprit is actually fast boot. Setting fastboot_enable="NO" will allow you to auto mount in Gnome 3 at least. It would be nice to figure out how to use the automatic mounting with fastboot.

Please create a ticket at trac.pcbsd.org so the correct fastboot order can be determined and corrected.

Has someone already created a ticket at trac.pcbsd.org for this issue yet? I searched for one using the terms "automount fastboot" and "automount gnome" but couldn't find one.

Want to check here first before creating a possible duplicate report.

pkgdemon creator informs me that automount does not work with pcdm, gdm must be enabled.

Since I think we are on track to switch to PCDM for 10.0, it would be useful to create that ticket and to ask that this functionality be added to PCDM.
