I have installed Arch Linux with Gnome but it can not mount removable storage, usb sticks etc. gnome-disk-utility package installed but i can not find automount package.

I think i need configure HAL or install other package for this solution.

How can i enable auto mount?

Thanks for your replies.

To answer your question title: It can, you just haven't told it to. As always, the Arch wiki has the answer.

Also, if you're using gnome, then as far as I know, all you need to do is add your user to the storage group.

it solved.

Create /etc/hal/fdi/policy/preferences.fdi file and write:

<merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">false</merge>

In the latest GNOME, Nautilus handles automounting. HAL is obsolete, and the storage group is only needed if you do not have ConsoleKit installed.
