Without knowing what I'm doing, I just ran this...
# /usr/libexec/polkitd &
# /usr/libexec/udisks-daemon &

... and the KDE Dolphin filemanager automounted and granted me access
to the two (ext4 and NTFS) partitions on the SATA drive. Cool :-)

I'd still like to know a bit more about what applications are involved
to allow users in Dolphin to access partitions on internal and
external devices.

Is there a good article somewhere that gives the big picture?

Thank you.
