I'm not sure how to fix my auto mount problem with xfce4. I have asked on here before but since my system went threw some hell it seems to be a different problem.

This is what would be in the /var/log/messages file after I plug in my usb drive

Jun 26 15:19:41 core dbus[9204]: [system] Activating service name='org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit' (using servicehelper)
Jun 26 15:20:06 core dbus[9204]: [system] Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit': timed out

[I'm running gentoo] Now I get this... (no more dbus error and I'm not sure what is happening)

gvfs is not functioning at all, my usb drives will not pop up even when I manually mount them under root –  Joe Aug 8 '12 at 4:51
    
Answer is obvious, you don't have consolekit started, how are you starting X ? –  warl0ck Aug 8 '12 at 6:51
    
GDM, and I have consolkit started and still no auto mount and still the same in the log files after I plug in my drive –  Joe Aug 8 '12 at 22:24
    
solved but not sure how, just re-compiled the kernel and it started working again. –  Joe Aug 11 '12 at 2:17
