    So I decided to replace Ubuntu 11.04 (wasnt liking Unity) with Fedora 15 (I was really liking Gnome Shell). By the way, Fedora 15 is really freaking nice

    Anyways, now i cant use USB mass storage any more! it doesnt even come up in the notification menu and i cant get in from the settings menu either =/

    Any ideas? Missing driver? I have no idea.

    Nothing has changed with my phone, just my OS. God, i need a linux user up here xD

    Thanks in advance.

    Type lsusb in the terminal and see if it lists your phone. Sounds like a permissions issue

    If you like fedora great keep it but if you like ubuntu 11.04 but hate unity there is a way to go back to gnome.
    in system login you can choose ubuntu classic.
    I know unity drove me batty I was searching high an low to change it even when so far as to remove unity then found it was not needed. Didnt work well either.

    That's the output of lsusb. The second last one is my phone.

    @new metro, arent i free to choose my OS as i like? I thought i'd give Gnome Shell 3.01 and fedora a chance. I havent used Fedora in 5-6 years. Also, comment very unrelated, didnt help me much =/

    Check this folder:
    /etc/udev/rules.d/
    There should be a file there called 40-udev.rules
    The number might differ in you distro. Open that file with a text editor and post what permissions are set. Should say MODE="0666" or something
