You are using KDE and you don't have notification of a USB drive
attached?  Then you must have switched it off.

Probably because there are better ways.  In Konqueror you have a Places
tab in the F9 bookmark panel.  Use it.  Your pen-drive will be listed

<RANT>It pains me that people will not even look when they are told
something exists.  As for Dolphin, it is much more powerful than
Konqueror was, but you have to learn to use it.  That's what the
