I'm Ubuntu ex-fan (because of gnome-shell).

On Ubuntu, there was this very sane feature (for laptop/desktop user): when you insert a thumbdrive or external usb media, the system mounts the media and sets all the correct permissions for the current non-root logged in user.

What do I have to change/edit/configure to make Fedora 15 behave like this?

GNOME is supposed to automount media, provided you have gnome-settings-daemon running (GNOME 3; or nautilus in GNOME 2). Check the process list. –  grawity Jun 13 '11 at 18:41
    
There was nothing wrong about the system. The problem was that my external USB disk was formatted as EXT3 and all the files had the wrong permissions. ´´chmod -R´´ fixed it. –  Noe Nieto Jun 13 '11 at 20:26

Your question implied that Fedora didn't mount the devices at all, not that it merely left "incorrect" permissions. –  grawity Jun 13 '11 at 21:36
    
@grawity My external drive had permissions for user 1001 (ubuntu), On Fedora, the user # was 500 (Don't know why) –  Noe Nieto Jun 17 '11 at 9:42
