Automount flash drive on FreeBSD

The problem with automount flash drives on FreeBSD 8.1 and KDE4:

An error occurred while accessing ‘My_flash’, the system responded: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy: org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable no <– (action, result)
or

Could not mount the following device:
My_flash

Solution:
add to PolicyKit config file(/usr/local/etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf) your user:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE pkconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD PolicyKit Configuration
1.0//EN"
"http://hal.freedesktop.org/releases/PolicyKit/1.0/config.dtd">

<!-- See the manual page PolicyKit.conf(5) for file format -->

<config version="0.1">
<match user="root">
<return result="yes"/>
</match>
<define_admin_auth group="wheel"/>
<!-- You should add the following strings -->
<match action="org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-removable">
<match user="slim">
<return result="yes"/>
</match>
</match>

</config>

where slim – your user.
and finally restart hald:
howtobsd#/usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald restart
