I turned it off because it was "spamming" me with information about plasma sound issues, but it appears that without it system also doesn't mount usb storage devices automatically. How to bring it back?

@depesz: How did you "turn it off"? ... be more precise ... – avelldiroll Oct 19 '09 at 10:46
@avelldiroll - clicked on the icon in taskbar with right mouse button, and chose to close it. I don't recall how it was named, so can't really be more precised. Didn't uninstall anything - just closed the app. Reboot doesn't help - i must have clicked something like "don't start next time". – user7385 Oct 19 '09 at 12:03

If I understand your problem correctly, you might have remove the Device Notifier widget.

To add a new Device Notifier widget to your panel you need to right click on a the far right element of the pannel and select Add Widgets ... from the presented menu.

Then select Device Notifier in the widget list and click on the button labeled Add Widget.
