I recently edited my /etc/rc.conf to include these lines:


# enable autofs(8), sysutils/automount or sysutils/dsbmd -- no more than one
# 
<https://vermaden.wordpress.com/2018/10/11/freebsd-desktop-part-17-automount-removable-media/comment-page-1/#comment-18391>;
autofs_enable="NO"
# <https://freeshell.de/~mk/projects/dsbmd.html>;
dsbmd_enable="NO"


I'm currently experimenting with sysutils/automount (not to be confused 
with the automount feature that's integral to FreeBSD) on FreeBSD 
14.0-CURRENT. As far as I can tell it works, but it's not entirely 
compatible with the Removable Devices feature of KDE Plasma.

In the example below, a Dolphin window to the file system opened 
automatically shortly after connecting the USB drive:
