I use debian 8 with kde-full package, everything is up-to-date. I have 4 usb flash drives: all of them are formatted in Windows OS. But only Sandisk "14.9 GiB Removable Media" is automounted correctly. Trascend and KINGSTON are automounted in read only. I cannot do much using Dolphin. So the problem is that these two drives are mounted with root as the owner.

What I have tried: * playing with udev rules https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/111685/usb-drive-permissions-when-automounting/124060#124060 https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/24731/automounting-usb-sticks-on-debian/186469#186469 -- no result * installing ntfs-3g, autofs, dosfstools packages * running command sudo chown -R root:disk /media/usb1 -- no success

I cannot believe that there is no way to make this working. If ntfs usb drive is mounting correctly, there is the way to mount fat drive in the similar way.

cat /etc/fstab

# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda3 during installation
