Hi everybody, it's my first post, and I expect to do it well enough (if not, please tell me)

I use gentoo since some years ago, and I've recently migrated my system to do not use hal with this guide: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-858965.html . getting a system with usb, cdrom... detection and mounting managed by consolekit, policykit, udev, udisk, etc... (surely I've not completely uderstood this)

My problem now is, when I insert a cdrom, and/or I plug an usb drive, no icon appears in my XFCE desktop,so I have to mount it manually (via mount /dev/sdb ... or via udisk --mount /dev/sdb)

Code:
Linux localhost 2.6.36-gentoo-r5 #1 SMP Fri Mar 11 16:53:38 CET 2011 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7500 @ 2.20GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


Code:
joa@localhost ~ $ udisks --monitor

Finally I've solved it, what I've done is to search (already more) posts about Thunar and mounting storage devices. The key was this post where after trying all options somebody talked about removing the udev persistent rules.
I've searched them in my system and I've found them in /lib/udev/rules.d and /lib64/udev/rules.d, so I've remembered I had copyied the /lib64 folder to the /lib (doing also a "ln -S /lib64 /lib" for repairing the symbolic link) (because an issue with sandbox and the error "can't compile C programs" (in 32 bits))
So finally what I've done is to begin a new empty /lib folder (doing again the symbolic linking) and populating it only with the necessary archives to execute 32 bits applications.
Now the storage devices appear in my desktop.
