icon for mounted USB

Is there a setting so that the desktop shows an icon for a USB stick which is mounted (accustomed to this, coming from Xubuntu)?

check the "icons" area of desktop settings. I think you can set "removable devices" to be shown on the desktop, along with a host of other things too.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.
