Of all the odious changes that KDE4 has inflicted upon users, the new 'Device Notifier' applet is certainly one of the most aggravating. Now, whenever a 'new device' is plugged in, the first thing that occurs is an annoying 'popup' notification. Then, one is now forced to navigate to the 'Device Notifier' button, click on it, and select "Open with File Manager' - regardless of whether one may already have a file manager opened in the first place! There seems no way to simply mount the device straightaway, without plodding mindlessly through all these redundant steps.
What the <bleep> was so 'wrong' about simply right-clicking on a device icon and selecting 'Safely Remove', anyway? Am I left to assume that somehow that method seemed too easy, so they decided to 'fix' it, by replacing it entirely?
Please! - how may I restore the system:/media view to Konqueror, and regain the right-click 'Safely Remove' device-handling method? This new 'Device Notifier' notion is, in my opinion, such an obviously stupid idea - how did such ever come to be in the first place?
