Description Patrick O'Callaghan 2009-05-14 16:01:42 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.2)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs

In the current implementation it needs three mouse clicks to mount a drive.

On inserting a pendrive, the notifier pop-up shows all hot-plug devices (not just the one recently inserted). I then have to click on the device and get another pop-up, this time offering several possibilities. Since I always want Dolphin, I need to select it (second click) and then click a third time on OK.

There should be a way to mark one of choices as a preselected default. Failing that, at least re-order the list to put Dolphin at the top rather than Digikam.

It would also be useful for one of the actions to simply mount the drive without opening any application.

The current requirement for these mouseclicks is an annoyance rather than a showstopper, but an annoyance none-the-less.  I wonder whether the OK is actually needed at all?  Unlike checkboxes, this is a single-selection situation.

I definitely add a +1 for the request for a Mount-only option.
