I used to be able to insert a CD or flash disk and Kubuntu 10.04 would pop up a notification allowing me to open up the files on the disk with gwenview etc.

But now, when I insert a CD nothing happens and I have to manually mount it with the mount command.

This is really inconvenient. I had a look around in the system settings and found "Removable devices" in the advanced section. All the options are enabled, but it doesn't seem to help.

How do I fix this?

To answer my own question.

Make sure the device notifier widget is running. In my case, it wasn't.
