Can't mount USB drive-Slackware


I'm trying to use my flash drive in Slackware 12. If I navigate to the /system/media/sdb in Konquerer, I see the drive listed. When I click on it or right click and select "mount", I get the following:

Vewy, vewy cryptic. I've googled, to no avail. Any ideas?

There's a sticky thread in the Slackware forum on here about this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d-this-566862/

Is essence, you need to add your user to the plugdev and cdrom groups to be able to automount devices.

usermod -G plugdev,cdrom <username>

It worked!
