Description Marc Benstein 2009-12-01 21:59:47 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.3.3)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    openSUSE RPMs

In KDE3 one could set mount-options per removeable device, i.e. whereever it
appeared, a context-menu entry "Properties" with a "Mount options"-tab was

If users used their external devices in some app that remembers the path and
that path was not the path that is automatically used but one that was set via
the options mentioned above

One way to access the feature in KDE3 is:

- Add the applet to kicker that shows an icon for a removeable device, if it is

- Left-click on it and pick the "Properties"-item from the context-menu.

- Change to the mount-options-tab in the properties-dialogue.

I think the best way to access it in KDE4 would e.g. be dolphin's context-menu
when right-clicking a device in the places-pane.
