How to manually mount a USB stick

So far, all USB sticks I plugged into the laptop just automatically got mounted. That is, they just show up on the Xubuntu desktop. Today, for the first time one didn’t. The following line solved this problem:

sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt

(The /dev/sdb1 may be different for your system.) The drive is then accessible under /mnt. Don’t forget to

sudo umount /dev/sdb1
