Hi people - I've never used a usb thumbdrive with Linux before. I got a SunDisk the other day and it hot mounted right up with desktop icons. Apologies in advance for such a painfully noobish question but I don't see any options or methods for d/ling files to thumbdrive in VL 5.8 standard/Xfce.
After googling around a couple hours and checking the Xfce and Vector forums with a dozen different search wordings I still can't figure it out.
I tried the terminal with:
cp /home/dan/file /dev/sda1
cp /home/dan/file /mnt/vl-hot/sda/vol1
mv /home/dan/file /dev/sda1
mv /home/dan/file /mnt/vl-hot/sda/vol1
And others but nothing worked, just various "no go" messages. The file is under 100 Mb to a 2 Gb drive.
I don't mind using the terminal but it seems there would be a fast and obvious way to just select a file then choose a destination from a drop down menu (which would include all mounted drives). Or open the usb drive and navigate from there to a file for transfer.
Thanks in advance for your patience. D.
