Fedora 11 Leonidas — Fix HDD (Hard Disk) and CD/DVD automount issues for users other than root.

I have been thinking of putting this for quite some time now. By default no user (other than root) on Fedora 11 has the permission to mount CD/DVD and or ntfs/vfat partitions. So HAL automount does not work for these.

Here is something you can do to fix this:

Open System-> Preferences -> Authourizations

<a href="http://blog.amit-agarwal.co.in/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Screenshot-Authorizations.jpg"><img class="size-full wp-image-905" title="Screenshot-Authorizations" src="http://blog.amit-agarwal.co.in/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Screenshot-Authorizations.jpg" alt="Screenshot-Authorizations" width="800" height="700" />

Now, go to org -> hal -> storage and make the changes to suit your needs. You can add or remove a particular user for the operation with the Grant or Block buttons or for all the users system-wide with the Edit button.
